Fats, particularly fatty acids (DHA and ARA), is an important nutrient for the growth of the brain and the eyes of the child. The second deficiency of essential fatty acids at birth it will cause low birth weight and small head circumference. As a result, the development of the central nervous system and cognitive abilities later in life will also be affected.

To meet the need of fatty acids, milk should be given as optimal as possible for the little guy. Breast milk fatty acids were found to contain the brain needs in order to thrive. Based on studies conducted by the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center, USA, proven IQ breast-fed babies are much higher compared with infants who are not breastfed. While the child is given solid foods, fatty acid requirement can be met by providing fish, eggs, and fortified milk DHA and ARA. Continue reading “Brain Nutrition For Smart Kids”

Based on the research of experts, the human brain growth rate peaked twice, namely in fetus at 15 weeks gestation to 20, and at 30 weeks gestation until the baby is 18 months old.

Two days above is the most important time for parents to play an active role in stimulating the brain intelligence. Because stimuli were given at this age can change the size and function of the brain chemical. Therefore, in addition to their nutritional intake must be considered, the widest possible opportunity to explore with holding, throwing, pushing, pulling and experimenting, you have to give.
