The right brain food will aid in creating a healthy mind and body for your child. Most of the food we consume daily is good for the brain, however your child will need a proper structured diet to maximize his or her brain development. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of The Woodlands offers an exclusive Brain Waves™ curriculum that provides stimulating age-appropriate activities to ensure proper brain development. The use of technology is integrated with a balanced curriculum, utilizing ABCmouse. ABC Mouse is one of the latest trends in online early childhood technology learning systems, and at Kids ‘R’ Kids we have integrated our curriculum with the ABC Mouse program to make it even more effective for our students.

At Kids ‘R Kids Learning Academy of the Woodlands, we approach technology with a balanced approach. We provide a wide variety of indoor and outdoor learning activities using all five senses and working to develop all lobes of the brain. We use strategies to support neural pathways for language, social, cognitive and social-emotional development. Providing adequate nutrition in our child sized cafeteria and served by our trained Chef and nutritionist is another way we support brain development.

Below is useful information on the right brain food for your growing child.

Strawberries and Blueberries

Fruits and a variety of berries such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are high in antioxidants. They protect your child’s brain from normal wear and tear, while being part of a generally healthy diet. The brighter the color of the berry, the more nutrients the fruit will contain. Serving suggestion: Slice and stir fresh berries into plain yogurt.

Fish

Certain fish, such as tuna, salmon and sardines are rich in Omega 3 oil. These are a nutritious addition to anyone’s diet. A good source of Vitamin D, they help to protect against cognitive decline and memory loss. Serving suggestion: grill the fish and add to a salad.

Purple Cauliflower

Purple cauliflower is high in fiber and low in sugar. It is also contains a good amount folate and B6, which helps to regulate, attention, memory and moods. This vegetable also provides inflammation-fighting nutrients called anthocyanins. Serving suggestion: Puree and serve as a dipping sauce.
