  • the more variety the better. Eat lots of fresh foods/fruits & things high in omega fatty acids (omega 3) Omega fatty acids are the used by the brain much more efficiently than other fats. If you eat enough of them, your baby's brain will be more efficient & it will grow to it's best possible ability. I believe it's the reason Asian people are so smart. They have the highest fish diet than most other cultures.

    Stay away from fast food, the more you eat/cook/prepare at home the easier it is to stay away from un-healthy fats & over processed foods.
