The importance of nutrients in your childs early age

By studying brain scans of children from their pre-school years to adolescence, a group of US scientists has confirmed the importance of nurturing during the early years of a child’s development. Kids whose mothers were nurturing them during the pre-school phase, were found to have more robust growth in the hippocampus, the part of the brain linked to learning, memory and stress responses, when compared to their peers with less supportive moms or ones who only concentrated on nurturing during the later childhood period.
