memory speed attention

Food for thought: we have noticed an increase in sugar and/or salt loaded snacks lately. Although, yummy (for some), these are not appropriate foods to be consumed for learning. The reason for this is it gives a short term sugar high, which is followed by a crash, both of which are disastrous for focus and learning.

Remember that the snack you are providing your child is meant to fuel them for learning. The work we do here is intensive, and we need to make sure we are fueling and nourishing our children so they have the best chance to make the most of this time.

Water and nutrient rich food are the best snack choices. Here is a link to an easy to read article, with some great ideas for packing a lunch box and snacks.
