    are used by the brain. True fact! (not one of those Fox News "facts," lol). So if you are are really using the brainbox, you need to adjust caloric intake accordingly.

    Teacherken, I'd try some nuts (almonds or walnuts if you aren't allergic)--they have a good balance of (good) fats, carbs and protein, and will stick with you. You also only need about an ounce so you can eat them fast. I bring some when I teach my graduate class and it's 3 hours long, it helps a lot.

    Please keep updating us and let us know if we can help your kids in any way. I used to live in DC and I loved it.
