Brain food is real and it turns out our brains literally run on nutrients.

  • Berries- They’re bursting with vitamin C, which Mosconi says is important for the formation of neurotransmitters, the chemicals used for signaling in the nervous system.
  • Plums- This fruit is a great source of tryptophan, an essential amino acid linked to the neurotransmitter serotonin, which can help regulate mood. Keeping your kid’s brain supplied with tryptophan will help them sleep at night, when our brains rest and repair themselves.
  • Sweet potatoes- They’re packed with vitamin A, which is essential to brain health. Plus, sweet potatoes are tasty and versatile, so kids are more likely to eat them.
  • Fish- Cold-water fatty fish, like salmon, mackerel and sardines, are high in a type of omega-3 fat called DHA, which is important for building nerve cells that are responsible for healthy brain growth and development, as well as learning skills.
