What Food Does To The Brain?

Nutrition affects a child’s IQ, learning, concentration, sleep, and behavior.  In order to build a healthy brain, a child needs balanced blood sugar, certain essential fats, vitamins and minerals.

Balanced Blood Sugar

Our bodies have a love/hate relationship with sugar. Of course, extreme sugar intake is bad. Too much sugar can cause children to be hyperactive and make it difficult for them to focus. On the other hand, we need sugar in order for our bodies to run properly. If children don’t have enough sugar they may feel tired and short-tempered, making it hard to focus. Most importantly, everyone needs a balanced amount of sugars such as glucose, which is vital to the brain, because it fuels billions of neurons, which keep us alive.
