Foods that contain brain building compounds like Antioxidants, Healthy fats like Omega 3, choline & Healthy carbohydrates plus proteins are Brainy foods. All these are not found in one food, hence baby needs to eat variety of foods to get all brain boosting elements. Antioxidants found in colored fruits & veggies keep brain cells healthy, Healthy fats found in nuts, seeds and fish help to transfer messages within the brain plus help in overall brain development. Healthy carbs and proteins keep brain alert and active and are found in beans, dals, grains like ragi, jowar, oats, dairy, egg.Giving variety of foods from the above mentioned list and avoiding excessive use of sugar, unhealthy fats and processed foods will keep baby more alert, attentive and will improve his learning.
