I started to learn about the human brain for my studies since 8-9 years ago. The past few years have driven my interest to also learn more about animals brain such as rats and rabbits, which was surprisingly interesting too J
More than that, I love reading about kids brain development which I think would be of interest of many other parents too.
Do you know that the brain grows at an amazing rate during development? At times during brain development, 250,000 neurons are added every minute! (Source: Neuroscience for kids)
New born babies generally contain almost all the neurons that the brain will ever have. The brain continues to grow for a few years after birth and by the age of 2-3 years old, the brain is about 80% of the adult size.
For healthy brain development, it is crucial to have a healthy brain food. Have you heard about brain food before?
I came across this topic quite some time ago from an article reading. It is well known that fats make up a large portion of our brain, up to 60% of the mass. Therefore, it is mentioned that the better fat in our diet, the better the brain is.
One of the good Brain Food is the one containing DHA and Gangliosides which are very important for kids’ brain development.
DHA itself is not only essential for brain development but also for visual development. It is a key building block of brain cells. On the other hand, Gangliosides are also very important. Gangliosides are responsible for brain cell connections where the more connections are made, the faster kids learn.
DHA and Gangliosides are working together to help ensure the best outcomes for children’s brain development. As I have mentioned earlier in the previous blog post, the new Anmum Essential formulation has levels that are even higher in DHA and Gangliosides . In fact, it is the only brand that has absolutely no any added sugar in the Growing Up Milk Powder which I think also one of the best criteria for choosing one.
There is much valuable information on Anmum’s website for parents. They are not only sharing information about nutrition for children, guide for new mums, nutrition for mums, guide during pregnancy but so much more. Please go HERE for more information
Last but not least, do you want to see how cute the kids are doing in this video? It’s awesome!
