According to Tosca Reno, creator of the Eat-Clean Diet, healthy fats like avocados, tuna, and flax seed are directly associated with mental clarity and could help kids make honor roll.
Instead of processed, sugary foods, Reno suggests parents bury things like broccoli, kiwis, and oranges in kids school lunches.
These foods improve mental performance and circulation, giving kids enough energy and endurance to even be better at sports and help them get picked first for teams on the playground.
Not only that, Reno says clean foods keep kids focused, which means less trips to the principals office.
Now that its back-to-school time, Reno says its crucial to wean kids off the ice cream truck and get their diets back in gear.
She shares clean, kid-tested recipes in The Eat-Clean For Family & Kids (Robert Kennedy Publishing).
