Breastmilk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.​

Best Brain-Boosting Foods for Kids

Your little one’s brain is at its most impressionable during zero to three years old. It is during this period that your child’s brain is open to learning and enriching influences. That is why introducing ‘brain food’ to your child’s diet comes with many benefits - it elevates learning and concentration, as well as sharpens memory and attention.


Here are some ‘brain food’ that supports your little one’s brain development, keeping them sharp and focused.


Eggs contain Choline, which is crucial for the creation of memory stem cells and is formed within the brain. Basically, the more cells your child has, the better his memory.

Eggs can be found anywhere in Singapore, from the nearest convenience store to supermarkets like NTUC Fairprice, so you don’t have to look too far when you need them.

Greek Yogurt

Among all the yogurts, Greek Yogurt contains the most protein. Protein keeps brain cells in the best condition for sending and receiving of information. Something to note: Greek ‘style’ yogurt does not have the same benefits as Greek Yogurt.

Greek Yogurt can be found in most supermarkets in Singapore.


Leafy vegetables like Kale is packed with antioxidants that support your little one’s brain development, improving their learning and memory.

Kale isn’t popular in Singapore, so there are only a few supermarkets that stock them. They can also be found in organic grocery stores in Singapore.


Salmon, like other oily fish, is a good source of omega-3, which contains DHA, to support your child’s cognitive functions.

Salmon can be found in major supermarket chains in Singapore.

Take advantage during this crucial period of your child’s brain development by exposing them to a holistic range of innovative enrichment options surrounding music, language, creativity, art and expression or activity based.
