Why DHA is important to toddlers

Hi Enfagrow parents. My name is Dr. Scott Cohen and I'm the author of "Eat, Sleep, Poop: A common Sense Guide to Your Baby's First Year". Eighty-five percent of brain growth happens in the first three years of life, and DHA is an important building block of the growing brain. So we want to find ways to get DHA a in their diet. It could be fish, to a lesser degree eggs. One, for example, is Enfagrow. Enfagrow has not just DHA but vitamins and minerals, Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, Zinc and Iron, as well as the calcium, protein and DHA. We want to find a wide variety of food that have the healthy nutrition and the vitamins and minerals they need so if they're only eating one or two, they complement each other.
