We know, If children below Three years are given nutritious food, They will be healthy. But, experts from Pennsylvania University found that, nutritious food besides  keeping the child in good health, can bring a sea change in a Child's behaviour in future.

 The study was conducted in Mauritius on a group of Children below Three years.Hemoglobin percentage in Blood, B2 Vitamin and Proteins  are taken in to consideration by the Study Group.

Children who had all the ingredients said above are friendly, active and mixing easily with others.

On the contrary, Children without nutritious ingredients were found to be inactive and unfriendly.

 After a period, when these two groups of Children are again tested, the IQ in the first Group  was found to be higher than the second Group.

Here are some tips for a food ideal for children below 3 years.

See getting your kids go Whole grain early. Children need a balance of nutrients, but don't need to get every nutrient at every Meal. Since their small stomachs don't allow them to eat big portions, they need foods  that contain lot of nutrient foods like sweet potatoes, nuts etc.

    I agree... Our body and brain requires various nutrients which we can get from the nutritious food only.. If the brain gets all required nutrients it remains active and gas good thinking power..

    Exactly. Health and behaviour in Children below 3 years must be treated with lot of care, so that their Health and behaviour are protected for ever. And for this, as you said , parents must keep their children away from packed and junk food.

    Without referring to any studies, it is common sense that good and nutritious food is at the core of our entire personality growth. However, environment and genes cannot be overcome by diet, if at all only to a small extent.

    I know a considerable number of parents lack that much needed common sense that food plays a vital role in shaping the personality of the children. If Children below Three years are given a healthy diet, it helps in keeping the children in a healthy condition and there would be a drastic change in the child's behavioural patterns in future.

    I couldn't agree more. The role of Nutritious food plays an extremely important role, along with a love-filled atmosphere. Nutritious food acts like fertilizers for the little plants our children are. However, every mom will have some experience or the other to share, which could easily prove that getting your kids to eat nutritious food is not a piece of cake. Kids, with their still developing taste buds, are often cranky, do not want to try new stuff, become very stubborn with their favorites and so on and so forth. So while feeding kids with a lot of care regarding nutrition is a must, it's definitely easier said than done :)

    Parenting is not a Cake walk. Its a tight rope walk. Additionally, for a considerable number of parents. especially working parents feeding the Baby is just filling the small stomach of the Baby.. Feeding the baby involves lot of patience. Generally at this stage of a baby's life, a baby likes to play while its being fed.. All these factors are to be taken in to consideration while feeding the Baby with nutritious stuff.

    Giving our traditional dishes and proper breakfast to the child each day is actually enough. They must be encouraged to eat seasonal fruits and vegetables according to the season. But nowadays, people are going overboard and stuffing the children with unnecessary calories and nutrition and then forcing the kids to sit in one place and study. As a result, the kids are intelligent and bright but growing up as obese, sickly children. We are seeing a flood of advertisements of various health drinks, nutrition-loaded stuff claiming to make the kids brighter but they are not at all necessary.

    Yes nutritious food is very important. And as others already mentioned the traditional foods in india are more than enough to provide the required nutrition to the kids. Its only when start to choose the easier way and move to processed and semi processed foods like biscuits, chips, cheese burgers etc. that we are inculcating the wrong food habbits in our kids and also weaning them of the nutrients.

    No doubt Indian food is well balanced if care is taken.I have seen mothers mix lots of rice with a little dhal, lots of ghee and feed to children with no vegetables and even when they do include it , it is always a side dish instead of a part of the meal. A lot of stress is given of carbohydrates, starch, fats and not enough n proteins and vitamins and other nutrients. If the amount of rice is reduced and the amount of dhal and vegetables are increased along with milk ,yogurt and fruits a child will have an all round nourishment.
