Genius Kids, what does it take to ensure your kids grow up to become one?Thursday, July 12, 2012 18:56
We recently visited Cambridge University in the UK. It is really a small city. Even smaller than Petaling Jaya. The roads are small and narrow and can only enough to fit through one car. Thus, there is no wonder that many people here travel by bicycle. Selling bicycle is a big business here. Just so happened when we arrived there was a huge graduation ceremony. So everybody in town walking around in their nice Graduation robes. I said to myself, “Oh, these are the brightest people in the world!” Just look at the faces of their family. Some come from a low income and mid income family, and some come from the well-heeled family. You can tell this from the clothes their families and relatives are wearing. Some are really flashy but some are really moderate.
THE GRADUATION ON CAMBRIDGE’S LAWN
I guess, being genius does not come from being rich. It comes from mainly the kind of education, motivation and last but not least the food that you eat when you are young. It has been traditionally recommended by scientists that the intake of DHA in a child’s diet is needed to help reach his potential in intelligence and cognitive abilities. DHA is a key building block of brain cells. Imagine Bob The Builder doesn’t get enough of his blocks to build his house. The outcome is a small and uncomfortable house or a big house with weak foundations. This is exactly the reason why many growing up powder today contain this nutrient – DHA is important.
BUT, for optimal brain development and function, DHA alone is not enough. Kids also need other nutrients such as Gangliosides that work together. While DHA is a key building block of brain cells; Gangliosides helps ensures greater connections between the brain cells, just like cement between blocks in our Bob The Builder case. The more brain cells connections the faster kids learn.
The result, an intelligent kid. I have been so kiasu about all this that I have been feeding Ian with the best milk in town which has these two important brain nutrients in combination – i.e. Anmum Essential. The result, he can read his alphabets and simple phrases before he turns two. Check out the video of him reading:
So far, I have not found any other brand of growing up milk that can offer this powerful double brain benefit. The new Anmum Essential formulation has levels that are even higher:
- 80% more DHA
- 25% more Gangliosides

You can’t change the genetic, but you can change his diet. So, let’s give him the best that he can get.
