The Tutoring Center in Hillsborough cares about the growth and development of your child. We are sure that you are aware of the direct relationship between your child’s growing and active mind and body, and what he or she needs to be eating. With this in mind, we’d love to share with you a few superfoods to include in your child’s diet.

Spinach is the ultimate superfood. It is an unparalleled source of calcium, folic acid, iron, and vitamins A and C, all of which are great for developing bodies and minds. On top of this, it’s really easy to include spinach in a whole host of dishes. Try adding spinach to tomato-based sauces, such as in pasta dishes or a lot of Mexican cuisine.

Eggs are a brilliant source of protein, which is not only essential for building cells but will also help your child feel fuller for longer after meals, and they are also rich in vitamin D.

Blueberries are very rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, which have been linked with decreased risk of cancer and general immune health. They are also delicious and terrifically easy to include in almost any dessert.

Oats are a good choice of carbohydrate due to the fact that they release energy slowly over time, avoiding spikes in blood sugar that are associated with loss of concentration and hyperactivity.

Yogurt, especially Greek yogurt, is rich in protein and calcium. Make sure to check the packaging though, as the amount of protein in a 100g serving of yogurt can range from a paltry 2g to an impressive 10g.

Oily fish such as salmon, trout and mackerel are all incredible sources of the good fats your child needs to develop properly. They are rich in omega 3 fatty acids which are great for both your heart and your brain.

Remember that your children look up to you. The best way to get them excited about eating well is by providing a good example. While experimenting to find healthy foods that your child will like, you might very well discover some new favorites of your own!

Now that your child is fueled up and ready to go, try some of our tips to boost their creativity. We know you want to do all you can to provide your child with opportunities to succeed.
