The article, “New title motivates children into healthy eating for sport and school success,” noted that the new book, Go Faster Food for Kids, comes from fitness journalist, serial marathon runner and cook, Kate Percy, author of the highly acclaimed Go Faster Food. Percy commented, ‘Good eating is not only the starting block to better performance in sport, it is also the key to good concentration, focus and attainment at school.’ (http://www.sourcewire.com/news/80055/new-title-motivates-children-into-healthy-eating-for-sport-and)

This inspired Yourwellness Magazine to explore how a healthy diet can prevent disease and the signs of ageing. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘It’s easy to say that you want a healthy diet, but what should you actually include? Your wellness doesn’t just come down to eating a few more salads here and there – although that’s better than nothing – but, if you want to guard your wellbeing against chronic disease and the premature effects of ageing, you need a balance of antioxidants, phytochemicals, soy, soluble fibre, omega-3s and other components of food.

Yourwellness Magazine outlined the super foods that contain an abundance of these healthful components:

1. Vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables – such as broccoli, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts – are especially rich in sulforaphane, which is a very powerful anti-cancer phytochemical. Spinach may prevent blindness as it’s rich in the antioxidant lutein.

2. Nuts and beans. Nuts contain omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fats, vitamin E, plant sterols and fibre, which are all important for heart health. Beans contain an abundance of essential nutrients such as fibre, zinc and folic acid.

3. Berries. All berries are extremely high in antioxidants.
