In brief: Best infant diet

The diet custom tailored for the human infant is breast milk, which certainly contains the fats needed for healthy growth and development.

In brief: Want it smart ??

Cholesterol is used by the nervous system as an insulator.Connections between brain cells need this to develop normally.
Remove it from your kids diet and they suffer, but the results may take years to be recognized.Other fats are also necessary for normal development.
