Nutrition plays a very important role
during 2-6 years of age because
that is the time for the growth of the
baby. What happens is that they have the
neurons but they are not attached to
each other, so the more nutrition we are
giving to them they are attaching to
each other,
so more myelin sheaths their myelination
is happening and accordingly the axons
and dendrites are forming the branching
of neurons is happening. So this is a
very crucial period. We have to first
take care about the nutrition, if your
neurons are not getting proper energy,
proper nutrition, they will die and then
they are not again building up, so the
development will be lesser. So we have to
make it a point that initial stages your
kid is not malnourished. So how can we
get the nutrients? We have divided all
the nutrients majorly into five food
groups. The first is these periods that is a
complex carbohydrate. Second is a protein which is a building block for the kid
and is very important. Third is the vitamins, vitamins and
minerals which we essentially get from
all kinds of fruits and vegetables and
that is the supportive system. The last is water which is very important,
fluid replenishment for the kid is very
important. If you are not having good EPA
and DHA what will happen? The
transmission will not be proper. Iron
plays a very important role in the brain
development. Egg is known to be a brain
food especially the yolk. Yolk has got
lot of DHA and zinc
