Nutrition for Children

Evidence supports that good nutrition in a child's early years will lay down the foundations of good health from which it will benefit in its adult years.

Optimum nutrition is important during childhood and adolescence for four major reasons:

  1. It allows a child to grow and develop and reach his or her genetic potential for physical size and intelligence
  2. It allows the child an opportunity to establish healthy eating patterns and food preferences at an early age
  3. A poor quality diet during childhood and adolescence can increase risk of chronic diseases such as osteoporosis and heart disease later in life
  4. Food and diet can affect children's behaviour, learning, concentration, sleep, growth, development and mood.
