As a continuation to last weeks post, “Brain Research and Exercise,” science is proving that what we eat affects our brain; cognition, memory, attention, stress, and even intelligence. The journals Nutritional Neuroscience and European Journal of Clinical Nutrition have been studying the effects on schools that pay attention to nutrition and cognition.
There seems to be direct correlation in children between what they eat and how the brain functions. Those who eat a diet of fruit, vegetables, lean protein and whole grains/complex carbohydrates have been shown to function better at school than those who consume a diet of processed foods and fast food high in fats and sugars.
