Brain growth occurs primarily during the early years of life. According to the Merck Manual, a newborn’s brain is 25% the size of an adult brain. By the age of one, the brain is halfway through its postnatal growth and its size has reached 75% that of an adult brain.
By the age of three, 80% of the brain’s growth cycle is complete and by the age of seven, this increases to 90%.
DHA offers the primary building blocks for developing a healthy brain, central nervous system and vision.
We used to think of lutein for vision as we got older, but kids can benefit from this powerful antioxidant too. Although lutein is found in dark green leafy and yellow vegetables, many kids don’t eat enough in their diet. Lutein helps protect the eyes from UVA/UVB and blue-ray light from computers, television and other devices. Lutein is also a fat-soluble nutrient, which means that it needs oil to be properly absorbed. By suspending it in oil your kids can soak up all the goodness that lutein has to offer.

Good Source of DHA
DHA or docosahexaenoic acid, is a long-chain essential fatty acid that serves as a major building block of the brain and the retina.
In fact, two thirds of the brain is made up of fat, of which DHA is the major component. In a study conducted on four-year-old children, mothers who had been given DHA and EPA supplements during pregnancy had children whose I.Q. test scores were higher than children whose mothers were given a placebo.
