HOMEMADE BABY FOOD IS THE MOST ESSENTIAL PART OF KIDS GROWTH.
The brain and nervous system continue to develop until about the age of three – and it’s important to make sure your baby gets the nourishment needed to develop to the fullest potential.
What your baby eats has a very profound impact in the development of the brain – and it is important that you, as a parent, are vigilant in ensuring that your baby gets enough of certain critical nutrients during the early years.
Research has found that higher levels of the fatty acids DHA help the development of the eyesight of the baby. These fatty acids also speed up transmission in the neurons, ensuring the brain develops faster. However, a balanced diet for a baby is very different as compared to an adult’s. Unlike an adult’s diet, which ideally should be low in fat and high in fiber, your baby needs a diet relatively high in healthy, unsaturated fats and low in fiber. Although fiber is a good thing, it’s very filling and too much of it may leave your baby too full to eat other foods that contain the energy and nutrients needed at this stage of their young lives.
Another important fatty acid for brain development is ARA (Arachidonic acid). ARA is the principal omega-6 fatty acid in the brain. Like DHA, ARA is essential for brain development and vision. It also plays an important role in immune function, blood clotting and other important functions. Also DHA is an omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid that makes up a full 25% of the total fat found in the brain. It’s not produced by the body in significant amounts, but it can be obtained through food or supplements.
A HEALTHY LIFETIME DEPENDS ON THE EARLY YEARS.
Iron is essential for babies to produce hemoglobin; too little can cause anemia, which can cause tiredness and lack of energy. Without adequate supplies of iron, your baby will suffer from fewer neural connections, resulting in both mental and motor impairments. Deficiency of this mineral can also affect learning, memory and attention.
Be extra-vigilant about making sure that your baby’s diet includes enough iron-rich foods, along with Vitamin C to absorb them. After six months, a breast-fed baby should be given iron rich supplements.
BEST INFANT READY TO EAT FOOD NEED OF YOUR GROWING BABY.
Your baby’s nutritional needs change as they grow and their food needs to keep up with these changes, to support a healthy growth. And because they have such tiny tummies, every small spoonful your baby eats, needs to be packed full of energy and nutrients. A baby’s tummy is around ten times smaller than an adult’s, so it’s important that the rest of their food is full of the right nutrients and goodness too.
At Scientific Brain Nutraceutical (SBN) we understand the importance of all the needs mentioned above and have developed a formula that nurtures your baby’s health with care.
