Did you know that a brain consists of 60% fat and 20% of which need to include Omega 3 fatty acids? Various studies show that pregnant women can provide hugely beneficial support to their baby’s brain by taking DHA during their pregnancy. This doesn’t stop when the baby is born, and many professionals suggest that parents give their children fish oil regularly.
A healthy brain’s function consists of electric signals passing from one brain cell to another. This process is supported by cell membranes which the signals can pass through. These membranes are made of almost entirely of fat. These membranes have ion channels which open and close to help electric signals flow smoothly. This is where DHA or fish oil comes in - it supports these channels by making them more elastic which in turn helps the easier flow.
Once kids start school, parents don’t just get busy helping their kids with homework and school activities, but also often think about after-school activities and which ones they should sign up their kids to.
We are sure that after-school activities are hugely beneficial to kids as they don’t just offer new skills, but uncover your child’s talents and expose children to other social groups rather than their school one. Activities after school are also a safe way to spend afternoons for busy kids or kids with working parents who are still at work (when a family member or nanny can take them there).
