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.​

Foods for fuel for your child’s bright future

Every parent wants the best for their child, and that includes wanting the best future for them.

Whether it is a doctor, lawyer, professional athlete or any dream job you have in mind, here is a list of food that contain the nutrients which may help feed your little one’s future.

As your child goes through a series of academic milestones, needless to say, there’s a lot of studying to be done. That is why brain development at an early age is essential and one major building block for the brain is DHA. Oily fish like salmon, herring and mackerel are rich in DHA, which you can introduce into your child’s diet.

In his learning journey, there will be plenty of chances where he will be actively exploring new and unique environment and knowledge around him. That’s where his eyesight is crucial and you will find helpful food such as leafy greens, like spinach and kale, which contain Vitamin C and E, Zinc and Omega-3 fatty acids that are fundamental for healthy eye development.

Children will be exposed to plenty of outdoor-based activity as part of their learning journey. Imagine seeing your child running the tracks or kicking footballs, so it’s never too early to keep their bones strong, and their body healthy. Vitamins and minerals like calcium and iron are key for their optimal development. Calcium is needed to keep bones strong, and it can be found in milk, yogurt and cheese. For oxygen to be carried to the different parts of the body that need it, your child’s diet would need to include iron-rich foods like lean meat, chicken and tuna.
