Among the best brain powering foods that can help your child get on the path to being a genius include fish, dark chocolate, blueberries, nuts, whole grains, and foods rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Most importantly, let's not forget the water!

Food is fuel to the human body. Which means that for anyone's brain to perform at optimal level, there must be a mix of food components that are important for the brain, especially the kids you're trying to nurture to be geniuses. According to Activebeat.com, this mix of healthy foods

includes carbs, lean proteins, fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. It's best to give a child a head start on these solid foods before they hit the books when they go to school.

These foods and, of course water, are known to foster a child's brain development. It also keeps the brain in good health and allows the brain to retain an excellent memory while preventing inflammation that can cause cellular breakdown and disease both in a child's body and brain.

Kids should eat well from the moment they wake up, as breakfast is the most important meal of the day. They will have the energy and ability to focus on their toys and daycare education. They will also benefit by being able to retain what they are learning, as well as the environment that surrounds them. They also get to enjoy playtime more so than that of a child that doesn't eat breakfast. Above all, their tiny brains develop much faster than kids who don't eat healthy foods.
