How Important Is To Give Your Little Ones The ‘Cognitive Boost’!
The continuous sound of toys falling from the plastic tray disturbed my beauty sleep on a weekend. Waking up late in the night, getting up early in the morning, battling with household routines and rushing to office was a 5-day drill of every week. So some peace was required during the weekends.
It was Joy’s routine activity every day as informed by my mum. Throughout this activity, I noticed something unusual that my son was trying his level best to put things on a plastic tray and walk with it.
I saw him putting several toys on the tray and walk with it. But before he could reach his destination the toys would fall off the tray. He tried walking with the toys on the tray a couple of times but all his efforts went in vain. Despite this, he didn’t get fed up and analysed the situation to work it out. Now he picked two toys at a time and this time the toys didn’t fall. His face lit up and then there was no stopping. Joy picked one more toy, kept it on the tray and walked without any hassle.
It was an example of how intelligently he used his brain to analyse the situation, experimented another mode and executed it. We must know that apart from physical growth young children are also growing mentally, in the medical world, it is termed as Cognitive Development. Till the age of six 90% of the brain development happens and kids tend to advance their skills in observing and interacting with the world around them.
It’s important for mothers to track the Cognitive abilities of their kid's something like associated with memory, reasoning, problemsolving and thinking. A psychologist has called kids as Little Scientists as they actively try to make sense of the world rather than simply soaking up information passively.
These years are critical for brain development, and what they eat affect their focus and cognitive skills. Vitamins and minerals are the intelligent nutrients that keep the brain in tune. They are key to building and rebuilding the brain. A good portion of food such as cereals, pulses, high-protein non-veg menu, vegetables, fruits, yoghurt, adding a health drink which contains balanced amounts of sugar, essential fats and Vitamins and minerals help in development. Since I have tried and tested Junior Horlicks I can certainly say it’s a good health drink to start with.
His little brain is growing and growing as it soaks up everything around him and figures out how to think, react, and solve important problems.
Being a mum, I really look forward that my little one gets plenty of these key nutrients to begin a smart start. Well, it’s a fact that children are not less intelligent than adults, they simply think differently, and therefore, have different nutritional needs.
