Eggs improve brain function…yet USDA does not allow them in school breakfast

Certain foods may help Staten Island children increase their brain power

EGGS

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.
