Want to help your child be more alert and focused, both at school and at home? Start by taking a good look at the food they’re eating.
While many individual foods (often called ‘brain foods’) may help increase your child’s brain function and ability to focus, it’s best to look at their whole diet to ensure they’re getting what their developing brains and bodies need.
To get you started, here are some simple tips from Connect Health and Community’s in-house kids’ nutrition expert, Paediatric Dietitian, Viv Sullivan:
If you’re still unsure about what your child should be eating, it’s best to talk to a qualified paediatric dietitian, who can help you address any concerns and give you a plan that’s tailored to your child’s needs. Call Connect Health & Community on 03 9575 5333 to find out more about our diet and nutrition services.
