BrainChild development, the physical growth of children will experience a significant spike in certain periods. Both the heavy and long term concerns of the child. The weight and length growth of the child at that time was also accompanied by the development of the brain and cells in the body.
But the development of the brain and head circumference of children is not as fast as the development of his body. If at birth, size or big-headed about a quarter of the length of the body, but when the adult head size of about one-eighth the body length. A brainchild development will continue until the age of about 10 years.
Brainchild growth and development of children is determined in the fetal period up to 2 years of age. In this period, the brainchild has suffered multiplication and increase the size of brain cells rapidly. According to a study, there were striking differences between normal infant brains with infants with protein deficiency (marasmus).
The total content of protein and DNA is much higher in normal infants. The children who experience malnutrition generally have smaller head circumference than children generally normal peers.
The further impact will be felt at the age of adolescents and adults. People who have marasmus at the age of 1-2 years, academic ability at school at the age of 5-11 years were lower than normal. Some indications were also seen in the behavior of children who experience malnutrition, such as lack of focus, low memory, and low motivation.
Physical development of children occurs as a whole, either in relation to body weight, body length, head size, growth of cells and internal organs. Development and growth will last until the child reaches puberty.
At puberty, the brainchild will experience rapid growth surges, particularly on cell growth and hormone-related to sexual organs, such as the growth of testes and breast enlargement. That’s why parents need to provide balanced nutrition to support and optimize growth and development.
