Oily fish also helps boost your preschooler’s brainpower because it contains vitamin D, which, according to experts, is one of the “crucial brain foods all children need.”
The main reason you encourage your child to drink milk is likely because it’s excellent for their bones; but did you know that milk is also one of the foods for brain development in preschoolers?
According to experts, milk contains proteins and vitamin B, essential nutrients that promote the formation of brain tissues, enzymes, and neurotransmitters. Additionally, it also contains carbohydrates, which is the brain’s preferred energy source.
What’s even more promising is that one study revealed that drinking milk potentially increases glutathione in the brain. Glutathione is an antioxidant capable of staving off damage-causing oxidative stress.
Here’s a good tip: from time to time, you can also give your preschooler yogurt. Like milk, it also packs vitamin B and proteins.
