Classical music and flash cards do not work to boost your baby’s brainpower the way their diet does. According to a recent study of 7,000 children, during the first two years of life their diet supplies the nutrients that are needed to develop brain tissues.
Children that are breast-fed up to six month of age and had a healthy diet of cheeses, fruits and vegetables, had higher IQs by age eight.
These children tested two points higher on standard IQ tests than those children who had diets consisting of sweets, chips and candy during the first two years of life. This may be one more reason to ensure that your kids start with a well-balanced diet early in life.
