What is brain development in childhood?

A kid’s brain develops amazingly and rapidly right from birth producing more than a million neural connections each second. Your kid’s brain development is influenced by many factors including the child’s relationships, experiences, environment, and the food. The food they consume plays a very important role in keeping their brain healthy, functioning, and making them bloom into a happy, smart, and hale and hearty adult.

There are four stages of childhood development as identified by Jean Piaget, a Swiss psychologist known for his work on child development. Piaget’s theory called genetic epistemology placed great importance on a child’s development fo knowledge.

  1. Sensorimotor Stage: Birth through about 2 years. During this stage, children grasp the world through their senses and the manipulation of objects.
  2. Preoperational Stage: Ages 2 through 7. During this stage, children develop memory and imagination. They are also able to understand things symbolically and to understand the ideas of the past and future.
  3. Concrete Operational Stage: Ages 7 through 11. During this stage, children develop the awareness of external events, as well as feelings other than their own. They turn out to be less egocentric and begin to understand that not everyone shares their thoughts, beliefs, or feelings.
  4. Formal Operational Stage: Ages 11 and older. During this stage, children can use logic to solve problems, view the world around them, and plan for the future.

We are aware that not every child is fond of all ingredients that we put in the product basket. We have a solution for this! We are expertized in blending the ingredients such that the kids begin to develop a tendency to like it without their knowledge.

The items/ingredients that go into the basket are of very high quality, prepared, and customized with a lot of love and care. Kids are one of my weaknesses as they are pure at heart and therefore the feedback I receive from them is very frank. Therefore, with a lot of studying and the utmost dedication, we create the products for the basket. For instance, we use the best of the best ingredients like ‘bean to bar chocolates’ wherein we blend dark chocolate with other ingredients to cut off the bitterness of it.

We prepare healthy laddoos using seeds, nuts, dry fruits, grains, pulses, oats, millets, and other ingredients. Likewise, we make our brand of pure leaf teas which facilitates immunity development. We also source fresh frozen berries in bulk for preparing milkshake, dairy-free homemade ice creams, etc. Amla, Jeera, and Ginger Lehyam that are faded out ancestral recipes are made at home against orders.
