Why Brain Nutrition is Critical

As parents, we’re used to obsessing over calcium and protein for healthy bones and bodies, but feeding our kids’ brains is just as important.

3 key nutrients that power up the brain are:

Omega-3 DHA / EPA

Essential building blocks of brain cells that ensures normal development. DHA makes up 15% of a child’s brain.

Typically found in 
fatty fish or breast milk

Omega-3 ALA

An essential fatty acid that supports the growth & development of a healthy brain.

The Brain Nutrition Gap

Even if you’re lucky enough to have a kid that gobbles up salmon and broccoli, they probably aren’t eating it every day. In fact, most kids in the US aren’t getting the level of brain nutrients recommended by the World Health Organization.*

Before

On average kids only get 20% of their daily Omega-3 needs

After

With Brainiac™ Kids products, kids can get as much as 90%+ of the recommended daily intake of Omega-3s

Before

On average kids only get 69% of the daily recommended Choline intake

After

With Brainiac® Kids products, kids get 100% of their daily Choline needs

Closing the Gap with The BrainPack®

The BrainPack® is our proprietary blend of Omega-3s including DHA, EPA, ALA and Choline, created specifically to close the brain nutrition gap.

One 4oz serving of yogurt or 3.2oz applesauce pouch provides as much:

Omega-3 DHA

as 1 oz of salmon

+

Choline

as 2 cups of broccoli

+

(plus other critical brain fueling nutrients)

We brought together the best brains to build the BrainPack®

When we started Brainiac™ Kids we assembled a team of neurologists, pediatricians, dietitians and nutrition scientists who helped us understand which nutrients are essential for childhood brain development. Then we worked together to determine how much of these nutrients our children really need, and built that amount into the BrainPack®.
