How ayurveda helps in child development?

Learning ability, learning imbalances, ADHD , harnessing nature’s intelligence in food At school - the Ayurvedic view of learning ability Children starting back at school are ready for fresh achievement and enjoyment. Or are they? School is a major part of a child’s life, so how can parents make sure their children are well prepared to get maximum enjoyment and benefit from the hours they spend there? One way is to enhance learning ability by applying the knowledge of Ayurveda.

Red-haired Amanda keeps saying, "I'm hot!" and "I'm hungry. When do we eat?" She is trying to get the others to play car games, which she usually wins. Thin, wiry Jenny is talking a mile a minute, wound up from the travel and anxious to get there. Simon, who is prone to gaining weight, congenially listens to his sisters and then drifts off to sleep.
