    • Hi Elena,
      I’d recommend any recipe that you think he’d enjoy that involves veggies, legumes, grains and fruits! Any food that doesn’t involve animal products and metals (like Dr. Barnard mentions in his video) will support healthy brain function. The following ideas are from PCRM’s “Kid Health” menu.

      You can serve him hot oatmeal for breakfast with a variety of fruits.
      For lunch, you could make small sandwiches on whole-wheat tortillas with hummus or a bean dip, add some shredded carrots & baby spinach leaves or whatever other veggies you think he might like. Red bell peppers are a great source of lycopene and vitamins A, C, and K. The antioxidants in vitamins A & C help prevent cell damage and support immune function. I’d pack in all those great nutritious veggies whenever possible! I posted a recipe the other day and will post another one this weekend that you might like. Check it out!

      Health & Happiness, Nina
