Adequate nutrition and stimulation are both key factors that positively influence the early stages of child development. Scientifically, stimulation and interaction between parents and their children have proven to be influential in a child’s cognitive development.
As a trusted partner for parents, Nestlé Dancow Excel + believes that the development of children should be done holistically. Therefore, Nestlé Dancow Excel+’s approach is to go beyond the product, i.e. not only that the brand provides products with good nutrition but it also launches an educational parenting program dubbed ‘StimuLearn’ to help Indonesian parents stimulate the children’s learning and exploration process.
Child psychologist Dr. Ratih Andjayani Ibrahim MM, a member of DANCOW Parenting Center’s team of experts, reveals that there are three important things that need to be developed in a child’s life, which is psychosocial, physical and cognitive skills. Both mother and father have an equally important role in supporting the growth and development of children, and they are expected to be able to care for, train and educate children harmoniously and in a balanced way to support their optimal development.
