A child’s brain triples in size in the first two years and grows to 90% of the adult size during the first 5 years1,which is why proper nutrition is key during this critical period. It is also during this period that parents start looking for ways to prepare their child for a complex and challenging world.
There is no doubt that future success requires a child to have high IQ (Intelligence Quotient) which includes skills such as logical reasoning and analytical. However, it is equally important for them to have high level of EQ (Emotional Quotient) such as collaboration, creativity and sociability for them to be future-ready.
Understanding how your child develops empowers you to provide them with the right balance of nutrients at the right time. It is also important that your child receives ample stimulation to help support his well rounded brain development. This sets the foundation to balanced IQ and EQ development which will continue into his adulthood.
