Experts: Child’s Diet Really Makes A Difference In Brain Power

By Sean Lee

Can your kids’ diet make a difference in how they perform at school? Some experts say yes.

Whether they’re kindergartener or high school seniors, most parents want to give their kids every edge to help them succeed.

Holistic health expert Bethany Perry said feeding a child’s brain the right foods can make a big difference in learning and behavior.

She recommends parents start by taking a close look at sugar consumption.

“Eliminating sugars — not that kids can’t ever have sugar because I don’t believe in eliminating anything all the time — but soda pop in particular is a big contributor to lower brain function and obesity,” she said.

The Better Health Market is hosting a series of free seminars with Perry over the next two Saturdays, on Sept. 7 and Sept. 14.
