In these times of COVID-19, it is no secret that for kids right now, remaining focused has become HARDER THAN EVER.
While there are dozens of factors affecting every individual child's ability to remained focused, there is ONE that may surprise the heck out of you...
Yes, that's right. There was a fascinating study conducted in 2014 that was published in the Journal of Nutrition that followed 65 children around for 9 months and tracked their food intake.
What the study concluded was a correlative link between prepubescent children's ability to remained focused and their dietary fiber intake!
Researchers believe that the link may have something to do with fiber's ability to reduce inflammation in the body. Additionally, fiber aids in the formation of a certain "brain-nurturing" compound called BDNF, which is positively linked to forming new brain cells and better functionality across neural connections!
Here we all just thought that fiber was just good for preventing the "afternoon crash," but it seems that there is MUCH MORE going on that meets the eye.
While more research certainly needs to be done in this specific area, one thing seems CLEAR: As we head into another unpredictable school year, adding fiber to our kids' diets seems to be a VERY positive thing, one that may directly affect children's educational outcomes for the better!
