Alongside the milk, snacks also play the important role in the development of intellectual and physical of a kid. The wise parent will not miss the valuable information below, which was disclosed by many dieticians.

The carbohydrates – source of essential energy for your babies

To let your babies always be healthy and get full of energy to operate flexibly, parents should pay attention to supply the carbohydrate group on his or her complementary diet. Because after entering into the body, these substances will be transformed into glucose to help the brain of the child operate smoothly and control the other operation of moving organs such as flip, crawled, etc.

From the 8th month onwards, because the babies will need more energy, parents ought to provide approximately 95g of carbohydrates each day and let your baby be acquainted with more solid food gradually, which means parents need to ascend the powder and remains the quantity of water. 

Proteins - The foundation for a healthy body of babies

During the complementary feeding, in addition to the increase of the essential energy for physical activities, the baby's body needs some protein sources to build the muscle and perfect the immune system. Also, proteins help the body against the entry of micro harmful bacteria, as well as perfect formation and nervous system, which helps the babies to be smarter.

According to some research by the dieticians, the demand of 6th – 7th month infant is about 14g of protein a day (about 80 grams of lean or fish) and babies after 8– 9 months is about 18g of protein a day (about 100g of meat or fish). The parents should provide the regular protein to infant by combining meat, fish, milk, eggs, shrimp, crab with beans, beans, peanuts, sesame for snack menu! Small Tip for the mothers is that beef or minced pork cooked with rice flour or porridge is simple meal, but plentiful source of proteins for the baby during the period of 7th – 9th months!

Fats – make babies appetitive

Fat not only provides energy, but also stimulates the appetite in children. It also supports the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K). That's why the mothers do not forget to add 2 teaspoons of oil, equivalent to 20 grams of fat per day, into the meals for babies. In particular, some kinds of natural oils such as sesame oil, olive oil, peanut oil, soybean oil, so forth and so on, are also very good and help them get enough beta carotene (a precursor of vitamin A) and Omega-3 per day for brain, eyes, skin and heart development.

Vitamins and minerals - enriched the nutritious snack:

In the first months of the complementary foods, children only need a small amount of vitamins and minerals each day but without them, they will cause danger to the health of young children. From the 6th month of age, iron will help the brain development of your babies and minimize the risk of defective thinking and movement, so they need approximately 11 mg iron per day. Meanwhile, zinc supports the growth of the babies and vitamin A helps your baby's eyes to be bright. Also, they will offer the healthy skin. The mothers also should pay attention to vitamin C to increase the resistance of infant, along with vitamin B that supplies the immune system and the nervous system, promote the cell growth.

Which toys are good for the development of the child's intelligence?

All parents always would like their kids to grow well and healthily, especially their intelligence development. Alongside providing enough nutrient foods with Omega 3, Omega 6, DHA, so forth and so on, do you think that toys can help your kids to develop their intelligence? Below are 3 kinds of toys that are able to promote the intelligence of your kids. Let’s check if you have already had how many of them.

The jigsaw blocks

Never ignore the benefits of these toys on education of children because they are as the multivitamin. Children that play with the puzzle blocks not only train and master the exercise as well as the motor skills, but also learn everything from basic math concepts to the method of solving a problem.

One study has even shown that if a preschool aged child often plays with the puzzle blocks, he or she will have higher math scores and the results of tests will be more excellent than the ones who do not play with the jigsaw blocks when they are in secondary school. Sharon MacDonald, an expert in the training of teachers, according to the early education programs and also the author of the "Block Play", has explained: "When children play with puzzle blocks, they will get knowledge of the fractions, shapes and counting ".

The balls

Those jigsaw blocks are not the only great toy for the development of your baby's intelligence. Even your babies are able to follow a ball and stare their eyes while it is rolling on the floor that can help much to promote their intelligence as well. As the explanation of Maureen Maiocco, a director early education program at SUNY Canton, New York (USA), the children "have to predict the direction and position of the ball while it is rolling towards him".

This way helps their eyes to connect the little eye movement with the movement of the body. Moreover, the prediction of the how long the ball is going to roll back will reinforce the thinking that something out of sight does not mean it will disappear forever.

Stacking cups

Sometimes, between the birthday of the 1 year old and 2 years old, the babies can set up the stack of cups in different ways. Normally, the child does not rank them in order, but sooner they will begin to understand the relationship of size. Do not let your babies be under pressure to force him to do the right way from the start. When they grow, they will realize more, if the kids try to put a big cup in a small cup, the 2 cups will not fit together. They are beginning to understand the right order to sort correctly.

They may spend hours filling sand or water into the cups and then pouring them out. As your babies gradually notice the difference between the full cup and an empty cup, they will have the first knowledge of the volume. They also will recognize that they can pour many small cups of sand into the biggest cup, but when pouring sand from the biggest cup into the smaller one, it will form a cascade.
