Certain foods may help Staten Island children increase their brain power
But here’s something for parents to chew on: What you feed your kids can have an impact on their brain health and help with cognition, memory, energy level and attention span.
Ms. Komis recommends children eat both the egg white and yolk for optimal health. Eggs contain choline and lecithin, two substances that support brain function and “make the brain work better,” she explained. “Without these, you couldn’t think as well,” Ms. Komis said.
Plus, Ms. Lemond noted, eggs are high in protein, which helps keep energy levels stable throughout the day, as opposed to sugary foods that give a quick hit of energy that drops off.
