Adequate nutrition during infancy and early childhood is essential to ensure the growth, health, and development of children to their full potential.
Poor nutrition increases the risk of illness, and is responsible, directly or indirectly, for one third of the estimated 9.5 million deaths that occurred in 2006 in children less than 5 years of age, as stated by World Health Oranization.
This may also come as a surprise, inappropriate nutrition can also lead to childhood obesity which is an increasing public health problem in many countries.
Nutritional deficits in infants and children are also linked to long-term impairment in growth and health. Malnutrition during the first 2 years of life causes stunting, leading to the adult being several centimetres shorter than his or her potential height, as stated in the Journal of Nutrition. This article goes further to clarify that adults who were malnourished in early childhood have impaired intellectual performance. They may also have reduced capacity for physical work.

Please remember, no two child are alike! Each child is different on their own. Some children are picky eaters and need tailored food plans to help them meet their daily nutrition intake.
