Our Top 6 Brain-boosting Seafood Recipes for Back to School



We know that many of you (and your little seafoodies) are either back in school or preparing to head back after the Labor Day holiday. It’s important to start off the new school season strong, with new notebooks, freshly sharpened pencils, and our personal favorite: brain food.


Seafood is full of the brain-boosting nutrients such as Omega-3s. Since half of our brain and eyes are comprised of the omega-3 DHA, it’s essential for young children to consume DHA regularly for optimal development in these areas. Additionally, these nutrients may help increase our brain matter as we age, which is important for processing information, memories, and emotions.


To help you and your family fuel up before the new school year, we rounded up a few of our favorite brain-boosting seafood recipes below. In addition to seafood, each of these recipes also contains another brain-healthy ingredient. Talk about a winner, winner, top notch seafood dinner!
