Toddler’s Development

Your toddler’s brain is highly flexible in the early years of life — just think of all that goes on in terms of language development, movement and social skills. Giving your toddler the best possible food for their brain will ensure they can maximise their full potential now and right throughout their lives.

Your toddler’s brain is still growing and changing everyday. About half of your toddler’s energy intake goes directly to their brain — more than twice the energy an adult brain needs.

Feeding your toddler with the right foods rich in iron has a powerful impact on their brain development and future potential right throughout their lives.

Its a fact- children who get enough iron during the First 1000 Days will do better at reading, writing and maths when they are starting secondary school than those who have missed out.
