Do You know that there are foods that affect your Child's Intelligence?

Dr. Aryeh D. Stein Professor of Public Health at Emory US coordinated research with a large group of children of depressed regions of Guatemala, between 2002 and 2004, which was divided into two groups, one choice feeding protein products were given a proteinaceous rich milk called "atole" and the other group preferred to use carbohydrate were given "soft" with abundant sugars. The results indicated that children who consumed the "alote" had better intellectual, cognitive and other skills understanding.(www.bebesymas.com/alimentacion-para-bebes-y-ninos/la-inteligencia)
