A growing child needs the right nutrition in order to keep up with their developmental milestones, those important moments that mark their cognitive and physical growth. For instance, about 80% of your child\u2019s brain develops by the age of three. This is when they begin to develop memory, language, thinking and reasoning skills. A period in their life that is full of curiosity and learning. It\u2019s important to support their nutritional needs and provide a stimulating environment at this time so that their brains can operate at maximum capacity. Allowing them to quickly absorb and use all the information and knowledge they need to grow up smart and wise. But this all depends on how well they are able to make brain cell connections. Brain Cell Connections at 1 to 3 Years Old Children aged one, two and three years old are full of unbridled potential. This stage of their development involves a lot of language acquisition: mimicking sounds, learning to speak for the first time, remembering new words, etc. They are also experimenting with their gross and fine motor skills at this point. Crawling, walking, running, jumping, colouring, scribbling, holding and playing with toys. All of these activities require a lot of brain cell connections. If you are feeding them right along with proper stimulation, then they will have no problem fulfilling these important developmental milestones. But if you want to support their progress even further you need to know about an important nutrient that is so important in supporting brain cell connections: Gangliosides (GA). The Importance of Gangliosides (GA) for Brain Cell Connections Brain development is one of the key development areas that mums emphasise in her growing up child. And aside from DHA, Gangliosides (GA) is another important nutrient to add to your child\u2019s diet in order to support their cognitive development. This is especially important for kids between the ages of 1 to 3 as this is when their brains are growing at an exponential speed. Not all brain cells are connected and new connections are formed every day. According to this 1995 study, Gangliosides (GA) can help support this neural activity so that your child can learn new things and remember what they have learned.
