In children, we have a unique opportunity to improve not only their overall health but their brain health and ultimately their learning ability. In assessing many lunch menus, it is clear that many of the foods that are served to our children have a high glycemic index causing a spike in glucose and insulin. Incorporating a high protein, low fat, low carbohydrate food that has a favorable glycemic index will immediately improve the health or our children’s bodies and brains.
