Child-lack Of Concentration: Your Food Is Your Medicine

Child-lack of concentration: Your food is your medicine

Our grandparents used to tell us that

“eat well then only your brain will

work well”. Yes! they were absolutely correct.

If your food is not sufficient, you may develop

deficiency of certain nutrients which may lead to

lack of concentration.

Nutrients like

vitamin-C and Iron deficiency can lead to

lack of concentration. Iron and vitamin-C are

not only required for your child’s immunity, but they also

help to maintain your child’s brain functions.

Vitamin C act as a co-factor for certain important brain

enzymes reactions and Iron deficiency may lead to

alterations in brain energy metabolism. So, both are

important for your child’s brain.


Good natural vegetarian sources of vitamin C are:

  • Sprouts

Beans don’t have vitamin-C in it, but when you sprout them

Vitamin-C is produced in it. One more important thing is that, you

need to take sprouts in raw form. If you cook or sauté it then vitamin-c

gets destroyed. So, for vitamin-C it is must that you take your sprouts in raw form.

  • Plum
  • Orange
  • Lemon
  • Raw mango
  • Amla etc.

There are many fruits and veggies which contains vitamin-C

but, always go for seasonal fruits and vegetables.


Good natural vegetarian sources of Iron are:

  • Mint leaves
  • Rajgira
  • Curry leaves.

Another important nutrient for your brain is

omega-3 fatty acid

Omega-3 is a good fat which is building block of brain. So,

for optimal brain function, structure and health

you require optimum omega-3

Good vegetarian sources of omega-3 are:

  • Chia seed
  • Walnut
  • Flax seeds
  • Bajra

In addition to nutrition, regular exercise helps your

child to boost their brain function. It keeps your child in good

mood and thus, improve concentration. Make sure your

child exercise/ plays outdoor games for at least an hour a day.

That all for today
