01. Proper Nutrition
The food you put into your body has a direct impact on the way it develops and functions. Proper nutrition is fundamental for developing children, and can be an extremely helpful tool for those who struggle with focus and behavior issues. While poor nutrition—especially diets high in sugar and processed foods—doesn't cause attention issues and anxiety, it has been linked directly to exacerbating the symptoms. On the other hand, a nutritious diet has been found in studies to help reduce these issues.

The Power of Organic
Why is an organic diet important? Some food chemicals (like hormones, steroids, additives and preservatives) have been found to increase some attention and emotional challenges. If your child struggles with focus and anxiety issues, one of the best nutritional moves you can make is to reduce your child's intake of artificial additives, chemicals and processed foods.
Diets rich in the right fats and proteins have a direct influence on brain development and are proven to help improve attention challenges.
Power of protein
Protein promotes alertness in the brain along with other beneficial effects. The best proteins are organically derived from foods like lean beef, pork, poultry, fish, eggs, beans, nuts, soy, and low-fat dairy products.
When you combine protein with complex carbohydrates that are high in fiber and low in sugar, you'll help your child manage their focus challenges more effectively during the day and help them sleep better at night.
