Foods that calm kids

These foods help in children being more calm and less hyperactive. Junk foods make many children hyper, esp colas, pizzas, lolipops, burgers, sugar cereals while these help reduce hyperactivity. I like the idea of marking them J.

Foods that calm kids

Milk: This calcium-rich food also supports cell membranes and aids the nervous system, which could improve a child's behaviour. Milk also contains magnesium that has a calming effect on the nervous system and helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function.

Nuts: Walnuts, almonds, cashew nuts etc as well as seeds like flax are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, that have a calming effect.

Oranges: Containing vitamin C and muscle-relaxing potassium, oranges are a good option to calm a hyperactive kid. In fact, give your kid an orange to peel. That itself will take a few minutes and calm him/her down. Fruits like blueberries and strawberries also contain healthy antioxidants and vitamin C. Moreover, they help prevent a boost in cortisol, the 'stress hormone' produced by the adrenal gland.

Leafy greens: Veggies like broccoli and spinach are a rich source of vitamin B, that has been linked to improved neural activity and is great at reducing stress. Other good food sources of these vitamins are whole-grain cereals and breads, rice, nuts, milk, eggs, meats, fish, fruits, leafy green vegetables and soy.

Banana: This fruit is rich in protein, that evenly sustains your energy and eating small portions of protein throughout the day evens out the energy. Make sure your child gets high-protein breakfast and adding banana to that is a sure way to fix your kid's attention deficit. If your kid is averse to eating banana, make a smoothie. more

Junk foods make many children hyper, esp colas, pizzas, lolipops, burgers, sugar cereals. Restriction on such items is recommended. more  
Dear Friends milk is definitely good for children not infants and that is what Miss Rita Kumar meant. cow's milk also contains a lot of trace elements which are very useful for growing children, our ancestors were very persuasive about drinking cow's milk because of its health benefits. However some children can not tolerate milk, in medical terms it is called Lactose intolerance, and all the symptoms that Mr.Quan Blue has mentioned are of Lactose intolerance. Cow's milk is the best diet for growing children. more  
My understanding is that all fruits and raw vegetables are good in calming kids and increasing immunity. Also we don't have to hunt for newly introduced Broccoli. It can be all our native fruits and vegetables. As per Ayurveda , Grapes and Pomogranate are rated very high. Also sprouts - (uncooked soaked pulses with roots coming out) also are supposed to be very good as much as can be digested. If not they can be powdered and boiled more  
What for non-vegans? I think fish, particularly shallow fried, good for all. Actually too much of milk is not good. Nuts are also not good if taken in larger quantities. What the child likes is more important. You cannot push food on it. What about chocolates? more
