Why exercise is called

‘BRAIN FOOD’!

· Food,Exercise,Learn

In 2008, there was a research article published on the importance of exercise for the brain.

This researcher called exercise… “brain food”.

The article discussed clinical studies that showed that exercise increased brain volume in areas involved in executive processing.

The executive function area of the brain helps us to plan, focus attention, remember and juggle multiple tasks.

Exercise was found to improve cognition in children with cerebral palsy and that it enhanced phonemic skills in school children with reading difficulties.

As many parents already know, their children are often diagnosed with both ADHD and dyslexia. The good news is that… exercise can help both.

Why not pick one of the many exercises activities that are baked by research to help your child, like…

Table Tennis

Tai Chi

Yoga

Swimming

and

Dancing.
