Learn more about nutrition for kids and get help with healthy meal ideas that will nourish your little ones
Proper nutrition is not only essential in the growth and development of a child, but it also creates good eating habits at a young age. Early childhood offers a critical window of opportunity to offer a variety of foods that will provide the child with various vitamins and minerals important for establishing healthy growth and development, including physical, emotional and mental abilities. For example, a deficiency of nutrients, such as iron and iodine, can impair cognitive and motor development. Furthermore, their mood and memory are regulated by neurotransmitters, which require specific nutrients like vitamin B6, folate and choline during the synthesizing process.
