the most important foods for the development of the child’s brain
In the stages of development, the child needs healthy food and a varied diet as a prerequisite for the proper development of his brain.
And (Today Barents) quoted Molly Shaw, clinical nutritionist in the neonatal intensive care unit, pediatrics and obstetrics at Mississauga Hospital, Canada, as saying that “the first thousand days of a child’s life from conception to the age of two years are the most important for brain development.”
There is a group of foods that contribute greatly to the development of the child’s brain, and are highly recommended by doctors and experts, including:
Eggs: Eggs are important for a child’s development because they are a major source of protein. The egg yolk contains choline, which helps in memory development.
Beans and lentils: These foods are high in zinc, which in turn helps the body process carbohydrates, protein and fats. It also boosts immunity and helps the growth and repair of body tissues. Zinc is also found in cow’s milk, yogurt, cheese, nuts, seeds, shellfish and seafood.
Salmon: An important source of omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, which help in brain development and function and protect against cell damage.
Meat balls: whether prepared from beef, lamb, turkey or pork. Meat is a very important source of iron, which is necessary to transport oxygen from the lungs to the body. Scientists recommend eating meat with vitamin C so that the body can absorb the iron.
Whole grains: Whole grains help regulate glucose in the body and supply the brain with what it needs, according to what was published by (Motherly).
