Here is a sample recipe from over 100 that are included in Brain Food For Kids. These recipes have been created with children in mind, but can also be enjoyed by adults. They contain the foods that are said to be the most beneficial for the brain, and in some instances have been shown to improve IQ, memory, attention span, and concentration.

AVOCADO DIP

Crunchy raw vegetables seem to be more acceptable to many children, and dipping them into this nutritious garlicky guacamole adds to the appeal.

Serves 24
1 ripe medium-size avocado
1 small garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp mayonnaise
various raw vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers, cucumber, celery, baby corn, carrots, snow peas

1 Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop the flesh out of the skin. Transfer the flesh to a blender or processor and add the garlic, lemon juice, and mayonnaise. Process until the dip is the consistency you prefer. Alternatively, place the ingredients in a bowl and mash together.

2 Prepare the vegetables to dip into the avocado mixture: cut broccoli and cauliflower into florets; de-seed the peppers and cut into strips; cut celery, cucumber, and carrots into sticks, and leave snow peas and baby corn whole. You may wish to blanche the snow peas or corn slightly first. Serve with the dip.


Brain Box

Although avocados are fairly high in fat, it is the beneficial monounsaturated type. Avocados are best eaten when just ripe to get the full benefit of their antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E, which protect brain cells against destructive free radicals. They also contain B-complex vitamins for memory and clarity of thought.

I bought this several years ago and I refer to the content and recipes quite often. I have a lot of cookbooks, so the recipes in this book are more a goal than a reality, but it's got great info. The colorful pictures make the food tempting and interesting. Great book if you need a jump start to the feeding the kiddies the right way.

I wish this cook book had more ideas for brown bag lunches. I am looking for more ideas for my son who is now in school.

This is a good handbook to get fresh ideas to feed kids off a healthy menu. I'm not sure I agree with some of the Kid friendly recipes, but every child is different and has his own taste.

I made almost every single recipe in this book and the kids liked only 2 or 3 dishes. It says that it has been kid-tested but I really wonder where and how because it didn't work in my household.
