Q: I was wondering if any native speaker here could help me translating the term ‘brain food’ into Icelandic. Searching on Google I’ve come up with a few different alternatives. Heilamatur seems the most used one.

Takk fyrirfram,

Frans, Switzerland.

A: Heilamatur, with heili meaning ‘brain’ and matur meaning ‘food,’ is correct, yes, but you could also say heilafæði, with fæða being another word for food.
