Apollo Beach Child Care: Vitamins Your Child Needs for Brain Development

Posted on 10-06-2014


Your child’s brain development requires more than mental stimulation. Parents need to consider vitamins and a healthy diet to provide the body with everything it needs to boost performance and development. These essential vitamins can be found in the following foods:

  • Omega-3: Found in oily fish like salmon and tuna as well as avocados and walnuts, omega-3s have been linked to improved concentration and academic performance.
  • Whole-grains: Rich in Vitamin B, these foods provide complex carbohydrates that provide the brain with a steady supply of fuel, while enhancing memory and recall abilities.
  • Vitamin B12: Found in lean red meat as well as tofu, milk and cheese, this vitamin helps keep energy levels up, which is essential for a learning and developing brain.

The same attention should be given to choosing a day care center for your child. At Kids ‘R Kids Learning Academy of Southshore, we have a “Hug First, Then Teach” philosophy where love and encouragement is the foundation we use to educate each child, allowing us to understand each child as an individual, which in turn gives us the ability to provide for each child’s emotional needs.
