The need to provide nutrients for the period from age 3
As in the stage of comprehensive development of physical and mental child so easily distracted with the task of "chew, swallow," and to concentrate on exploring the world of their own. Thus, children at this age children often anorexia and rarely finish a meal as her parents expected.
Therefore, we must ensure adequate supply of essential components such as the three amino acid DHA, taurine and zinc to ensure children with brain development, height and strengthen the immune system perfectly.
DHA: Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 is a particularly important development for improving visual function of eyes and perfect development the nervous system. Studies on laboratory animals show high levels of DHA in neural organization, such as retina, brain organization. If lack of DHA in the process of child development will have only a low IQ. Monitoring studies to children 8-9 years of age when young people see breastfeeding, and adequate dietary DHA has an IQ higher than 8.3 percentage points and least-developed nervous system lower down.
Taurine: Taurine concentrations in the brain, retina, heart muscle, skeletal muscle and smooth muscle, kidney, blood platelets and leukocytes. Taurine is considered essential amino acid because it is conditional on the necessary additional meals for children to help brain and eye develop normally. Taurine plays an important role in the function of vision, brain and nervous system, heart function.
Zinc: Zinc is involved in the metabolism of cells. It is an essential component for catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes in the body. Zinc plays an important role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis and cell division. Zinc also supports the growth and normal development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence.
Zinc deficiency often leads to phenomena such as growth retardation, loss of appetite, and immune function is impaired. In severe cases, zinc deficiency is the cause of hair loss, diarrhea, healing of wounds was delayed, abnormal taste, and mental lethargy can also occur ...nutrition for children
