I'm in my first trimester. Is there something I can eat to increase the chances of my child becoming really smart?

In brief: Just eat healthy

There are no "smart " foods.
You kid will have the intellectual power derived from the pool of genes they inherit from both parents. If you smoke, eat poorly, get sick or take drugs during pregnancy you can diminish their potential, but there is no way to increase it.
