Another top tip for the summer holidays is to overnight soak 15 almonds, peel skin off following morning and feed to DC.

Very beneficial for increased learning.

Any top tips for disguising them as something that isn't an almond? My DS's wouldn't eat one almond if I paid them, let alone 15! (my DD might though :) )

Does it have to be eaten separately?

Usually I grind them and add it in the rice pudding & cake or sprinkle the flakes....

On the subject of 'brain & memory' food, mint is also good and nice in salads. 8)

6-10 overnight soaked almonds are very easy to peel off. They taste delicious as well. There is feedback via Google about increase in memory retention and at the end of the day, cant be doing any harm.

Funny story, at KECH entrance test last year, chap sitting infront of DS promptly pulled out a handful of almonds and offered some to DS, sweet!

Too right, you don't want to be messing about with nonsense like double blind controlled trials when there's perfectly good anecdotal evidence on Google.

That said, it can't do any harm (unless you have a PKU disorder or, like me, a queasy feeling about swallowing a benzene ring). I used to give ours fish oil, there's no good evidence for that either - but if it makes you feel better, go ahead.
