carbohydrates which combined are known to sharpen one's memory. They are great
to snack on alone, or mixed with other healthy snacks in a trail mix.

Brain foods are so important to both
adults and children. Many people
focus on sugar rushes that may give
you a burst of physical energy, but it
is short lived while it plays havoc on
your brain function.

What you eat does affect your brain
performance. You can subdue your
brain activity by snacking on
high-carbohydrate foods and
consuming sugars, or you can
enhance your brain attentiveness by
including brain foods as healthy
snacks in your day to day diet.
