– Omega 3 acids from fish oil, white fish, nuts, olive and canola oil, supplements
– Whole grain pasta, rice, cereal, bread
– Vitamin intake with multivitamins (B-6, D, etc.)
– Mineral supplements including iron, zinc and magnesium

To also facilitate attention, DECREASE or avoid:
– Sugar (*), corn syrup, honey, candy, especially high-fructose corn syrup
– Food colouring, dyes, sugar substitutes, food additives
– Trans-fats, partially hydrogenated oils (read ingredients)
– White flour, starch and complex sugars
– Fast foods or fatty foods requiring added energy to digest
