SAT prep in West Caldwell, NJ

There is a clear link between a healthy diet and a healthy body and mind. It is with your children’s development in mind that we at The Tutoring Center in West Caldwell would like to suggest these superfoods for your active children. 

Eggs are a great source of protein and are naturally rich in vitamin D. They are also rich in choline, which is important in enabling your child to absorb calcium properly. Eggs are also very satiating, simply meaning that they keep your child full for a long time.

Greek yogurt is an exceptional source of protein (other yogurts contain far less protein due to a different method of production) and are also rich in calcium. Yogurt can be enjoyed by itself, with fruit, or included in smoothies. You can also switch out cream, creme fraiche and sour cream for Greek yogurt in almost any recipe.

Peanut butter may be thought of as being very unhealthy, but this is far from the truth. Granted, if you buy a sugar-laden, processed brand then it will indeed be unhealthy, but a peanut butter made from 100% peanuts is an incredible way to provide your child with protein and healthy fats. You’ll have no problem getting your child to eat it, either.

Beans and legumes are great staples as they are high in protein, provide slow-release energy, and are rich in fiber to aid good digestive health.

Blueberries are easy to include in your child’s diet as they can easily be eaten on-the-go, or included as a topping on breakfasts like Greek yogurt and fruit, pancakes, or oatmeal. These unassuming berries are paragons of health; brimming with antioxidants and vitamins.

Remember that your child will follow your example, and the best way to get him or her to eat healthily is by providing a good example. This goes for forming other good habits too, such as encouraging your child to read. If your child is in need of some assistance academically, The Tutoring Center is here for you.
