60% of the brain is made of fat. Brain development affects children's intelligence and emotions. If children lack essential fatty acids, it can easily lead to depression, dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, autism, fatigue, memory loss and other symptoms. A study in the United States shows that children with ADHD have lower levels of essential fatty acids in the body than healthy children. Once they have consumed sufficient essential fatty acids, their anxiety, difficulty in concentration and other symptoms can be greatly improved.
Usually more intake of deep-sea fish, such as wild salmon, sardines, tuna and nuts, such as walnut, almonds . If necessary, add Omega3 fatty acids and DHA supplement. In addition, it is important to take note that though fried chicken, cakes, potato chips, burgers are children's favorite, trans fat in these food can be detrimental to brain health.
