Does your child crave fatty foods (ie, butter, mayonnaise, peanut butter, etc)? Your child’s cravings are telling you something….they need more essential fatty acids.
The UCLA school of medicine found that boys have three times greater need for essential fatty acids when compared to girls. It is not a coincidence that teachers reports boys having struggles with learning three times higher than girls.
The corpus callosum, which connects the two brain 🧠 hemispheres, is made mainly of fat: in fact the brain is 60% fat, the primary fat being DHA. DHA is largely found in two sources; mother’s breast milk and fish.
It is commonly believed that dyslexia and dysgraphia are learning blocks resulting largely form the inability to easily use both hemispheres together. Thus, the processes of learning remind in the left (concentrating) hemisphere rather than going into the right (automatic) brain hemisphere.
A study 📖 performed by English brain researcher, Dr. Jacqueline Stordy, working with children who had ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia found that when the children were given a certain combination of essential fatty acids they made incredible progress in reading.
Feeding the brain with correct nutrition and feeding the body with movements that cross the midline helps significantly with brain development and learning by strengthening connections in the corpus callosum.
