How to raise nutritionally superior kids~

Once your baby is born, Nurse your child!
The composition of your milk is infinitely superior to “formula”, just listen to the name, formula. Your milk is composed of vitamins, minerals, and proteins specifically to enhance your child’s brain. Formula is a weak, weak, knock off
Cow’s Milk is for Cows, Human Milk is for Humans
While you are nursing, continue to take multivitamin supplements and Omega 3’s, (3-6)
Once your child begins feeding himself follow these simple guidelines
- Gummybear multivitamins
- DHA, Omega 3’s, Liquid – make a fruit smoothie and fit some in there, he’ll never know 😉
You can find all of these supplements at your local health store, and maybe even walmart nowadays.
Why multivitamins? You never know if there is a missing vitamin in your, or your child’s diet, and if there is, there will be detrimental affects. You should also take multivitamins when you are nursing as your vitamins may become affected
What’s Omega’s and Why? “Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in cell membranes in the brain.”1 Your brain is composed of it, and your brain needs it. Taking it long term will improve the person’s brain, and that’s good enough for me!
Of course, you should be eating a healthy diet, and drastically limiting TV time or no supplements will help you! Check out Raising Really Smart Kids to scoop out some activities you and your kids can do to boost their brains!
