7. Brain Food: Beans
Bean, beans, good for the heart… so the saying goes. They are also good for kid's brains since they have energy from protein, complex carbohydrates, fiber, and vitamins and minerals. They can keep energy levels high. Kidney and pinto beans are good choices as they contain more omega-3 fatty acids that other bean varieties, which are important for brain growth and function.
Add beans as a salad topper, as filler for lettuce wraps, or even add them to spaghetti for a more nutritious meal.
