MIND Diet Snack Board for Your Family Game Night

What should you serve for family game night?  A snack board, of course!  And, if you also want to make sure your family gets the brain nutrition it needs, then we invite you to enjoy this fun and interactive snack board inspired by the elements of the MIND diet.   MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay, and it was developed based on groundbreaking research findings linked to a 53% reduction in risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, in addition to other health benefits.  This diet emphasizes minimally processed foods like leafy green vegetables, berries and seafood, packed with nutrients that benefit lifelong brain health.   

In this video, Liz Weiss, MS, RDN, shares how to build your own MIND Diet Snack Board for your next family game night with the food groups that are most important for brain health.  The MIND Diet highlights 10 food groups, and 9 of them are represented in this snack board (red wine is also part of the MIND Diet).

Playing games is a great way to exercise your brain, and this snack board will also be sure to feed your brain.  It’s easy to create your own MIND Diet Snack Board using the above ideas as inspiration, and your kids (or grandkids) will love the quality time together.  We can’t guarantee you’ll win every game, but it just might give you the extra edge you need to beat your family at Battleship or Monopoly!
