Child's Attention Span at 3 years Old

Child's Attention Span at 3 years Old


Worried that your active child’s attention span seems too short to absorb new information? Relax. Your three-year old is more than ready to expand his or her knowledge! Here’s how help with learning better and faster.

Maximise the age of faster learning

By the time of their third birthday, children are ready to enter the age of faster learning! And that’s why a stronger immune system is so important at this age—so that fewer illnesses will interrupt your child’s learning and that nutrients will be maximally utilised for brain development.1

Strengthen the immune system

Children are more prone to sickness. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything to boost your child’s developing immune system. A simple way to improve immunity is by supplementing the diet with 2′-FL. 2′-FL is the 3rd most solid component in human milk that’s now commercially derived from lactose. This special type of prebiotic nourishes your growing child’s developing digestive system. And because 70% of the immune system exists in the gut, keeping your little one’s digestive system healthy with 2′-FL also means strengthening immunity.2

When your child is not sickly, nutrient intake is utilised for brain development and growth instead of being used to fight off infections. Less sick days also mean that your child can spend more time out there playing and learning!

Give their mind the power of nutrients

The fast growth of your three-year old’s mind needs to be accompanied by proper nutrition—and that’s where key nutrients come in. Let’s take lutein for example. It is an ingredient that can boost your child’s learning ability by improving brain processing speed based on studies!3 No wonder new research shows that school children with higher levels of lutein do better in Math, Reading, and Language.4

Load up your child’s diet with lutein by serving her egg yolks, broccoli, lettuce, and asparagus.

Complete your child’s balanced meals to support their learning!
