Nutrition and Eating

Infant Nutrition
Breast milk is best for your baby and is beneficial even if you only breastfeed for a short amount of time, or part-time.
Nutrition for Pre-school Children
Preschoolers are eager to learn, especially from other people. They need supervision at mealtime, as they are still working on chewing and swallowing skills.
Nutrition for School-age Children
School-aged children usually eat four to five times a day, including snacks. Many food habits, likes, and dislikes are established during this time.
Nutrition for Adolescents
Use the food pyramid as a guideline to help your adolescent eat a healthy diet. It's important that he or she eat a variety of foods while taking in the right amount of calories and fat.
