Thanks bananaland

Eating a banana can cheer you up. Bananas are the only fruit to contain the amino acid, tryptophan plus Vitamin B6 which together help the body produce seratonin, the natural chemical which alleviates mental depression. (It's also found in Prozac.) That's why we call them "nature's good mood food."

Turkey and dark green veggies too. Didja know that regular exercise cures most mild depression and can stimulate brain growth, especially in the little ones? So tell your kids you're doing them an extra favor by making them walk.

Does making them clean house count too?
