UBON RATCHATHANI, 14th February 2019 (NNT) – The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) has cooperated with three ministries to organize an activity to help boost Thai children’s intelligence quotient (IQ) in Area Health 10.

 

The Director-General of the Department of Health, Dr. Panpimol Wipulakorn, presided over the opening of the activity at Sunee Grand Hotel, Ubon Ratchathani province.

 

The situation of Thai children having lower IQ scores than children in many Asian countries is considered a national problem. The Health Center 10, under the Department of Health, found that only 56.5 percent of children in early childhood had proper development in 2016, but in 2017, 74 percent of children in early childhood had proper development.

 

The Health Center 10 then cooperated with Area Health 10, the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Education, and the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security to organize the Smart Kids R10 project to boost Thai children’s IQ by promoting nutritious food for mothers before giving birth. The nutrients, such as iodine and iron, will affect the children’s brain.

Where's the children?

Perhaps someone out of shot was busy giving them post-birth nutrients of iodine and iron, as pre-2016 they'd missed them.

At least they've recognized the problem and the need to do something about it. A step in the right direction.

True. As long as it filters down the bureaucratic levels and is implemented.

Best to attempt to increase the IQ of the adults first, otherwise they continue to drag the children down to their level.

 

A Moth would have a better chance than Moph

Years ago a minister summoned parents to produce "quality babies". I'm surprised they did not heed the call.

An activity eh, just the one?

 

That's going to help a lot.

Who pays for these foods if the family can't afford them?

 

Surely, if these concerned departments are truly concerned, they will arrange state funding.

the focus is on the wrong population demographic - what about the adults running the country 

Most are Untrainable, there was some attempt a few years back,  but they 

kept failing at the same test.

Sad. Unlike in US where the underclass is addicted to junk food, the poor here will eat a healthy balanced diet. Seems so easy to get a bit of protein and vitamins to them.
