Nurturing Healthy Eating Habits

To ensure your child receives a well-rounded and nutritious diet:

Understanding Nutrient Requirements: Learn about your child’s changing nutrient requirements as they grow. Certain nutrients, such as iron and calcium, have varying needs throughout different stages of childhood and adolescence.

Teaching Moments for Healthy Choices: Utilize your child’s food and beverage choices as opportunities for teaching healthy habits. Guide them towards healthier options and explain the reasons behind making balanced choices. Avoid making them feel guilty about their food choices and instead provide positive reinforcement when they choose healthier items.

By fostering a positive and supportive environment around food, you can instill lifelong healthy eating habits in your child.
