Cacao Beans/Dark Chocolate


Chocolate is tricky when it comes to brain boosters. When the cacao bean is minimally processed it's packed full of antioxidants, flavonoids, catechins, and theobromine, which increases cognitive function and enhances mood. Most candy and chocolate bars contain low levels of cacao and the processing completely eliminates the healthy elements. If you want the most out of your chocolate choose 100% organic non-alkalized cocoa powder or high cacao percentage dark chocolate bars.

Don't be afraid of fats! Healthy fats, like those found in nuts, avocado, or cheese, make great lunch additions or snacks, and will help keep your child full until the end of the school day.
