Brain Food Program

Energy Food provides children with healthy food options to eat at Brain Food time. The food provided for this snack time needs to be separate from what is provided for recess and lunch and should be appropriately stored (eg in a separate container). It is also important that children have a water bottle filled with water only, for use in the classroom, each day.

Appropriate Brain Foods are generally unprocessed and ensure a slow release of glucose rather than a quick fix provided by high sugar/fat filled foods.

Brain Food:

• Provides students with a mid morning energy burst.

• Brain Food time is not a play-break. It is a time when students are encouraged to eat small amounts

of brain-healthy food that helps maintain the glucose supply to the brain.

• Students access to water bottles on desks to enable them to have regular sips of

water throughout the day.

• Develops higher level brain function

• Gives student more energy to learn

• Experience more success with learning

• Provides students with lifelong skills around healthy eating
