Babies’ brains are ready to absorb information when they are born. However, babies may comprehend some concepts about items and their connections to one another. They can touch, feel, watch, listen, and feels everything. This enables them to understand their older; they may discover that mixing yellow and blue paint produces green. Children learn through exploring and experimenting. This is the way they improve their cognitive abilities.

           Human brain development is extremely fast between the ages of 20 and 36 weeks and proceeds until 20 months. The brain includes all the neurons required for life at birth. Of course, if the baby is brought to term, an infant's brain is 25% of its adult weight at birth. The brain would be 75 % of its body weight by age 2 (90 percent by age 6). Children will go through various phases of cognitive growth between birth and the age of two, such as sensory growth and learning ability.

           Children naturally choose the meals they like the most, so the difficulty is to make healthy options enticing. Of course, no issue how excellent our motives are; convincing your eight-year-old that an apple is as sweet as a biscuit is going to be tough. Therefore, you might ensure that your child's food is as healthy and wholesome as possible while letting them enjoy a few of their preferred delights. Development.
