Brain food facts

Food for thought:
Food that's good for the brain ensures good concentration and helps your memory

Clear your mind:
If you want to keep your head clear and your brain alert, you need to maintain a steady blood sugar level with good amounts of antioxidants, protein and amino acids. These are found in fish, veg and fruit.

Something fishy:
Oily fish, such as mackerel, sardines and herring, are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, essential for healthy eyesight and brain development. So eat plenty of these, especially if you're pregnant and want your child to be super-intelligent.

Get it down you:
Two teaspoons of cod liver oil a day will provide you with vitamins A and D and about 2g of omega-3 fatty acids - more than enough to meet the recommended daily intake and great for brain food.

It's actually true:
Carrots are an excellent source of beta carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A...and night blindness or poor vision in the dark is usually a sign of a deficiency of vitamin A!
