I link dei maestrini su del.icio.us (tieni il puntatore sul link e compare la spiega)

According to research kids breakfasting on fizzy drinks and sugary snacks performed at the level of an average 70-year-old in tests of memory and attention. Beans on toast is a far better combination. Toast alone boosted children's scores on a variety of cognitive tests, but when the tests got tougher, the breakfast with the high-protein beans worked best.

Don't forget to snaffle a snack mid-afternoon, to maintain your glucose levels.
Just make sure you avoid junk food, and especially highly processed goodies such as cakes, pastries and biscuits, which contain trans-fatty acids.
These are implicated in a slew of serious mental disorders, from dyslexia and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) to autism. (...) Last year researchers at the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting in San Diego, California, reported that rats and mice raised on the rodent equivalent of junk food struggled to find their way around a maze, and took longer to remember solutions to problems they had already solved.

Brains are around 60 per cent fat, so if trans-fats clog up the system, what should you eat to keep it well oiled? Evidence is mounting in favour of omega-3 fatty acids, in particular docosahexaenoic acid or DHA.
In other words, your granny was right: fish is the best brain food.
Not only will it feed and lubricate a developing brain, DHA also seems to help stave off dementia.
Studies published last year reveal that older mice from a strain genetically altered to develop Alzheimer's had 70 per cent less of the amyloid plaques associated with the disease when fed on a high-DHA diet.

YES Proteins, YES Omega 3, YES mid-afternoon snack (5 meals a day),
NO complex carbos, NO Trans-fatty acids, NO fizzy drinks and sugary snacks
