Nutrition for School-age Children

Prevention of Heart Disease Starts in Childhood
You may think of heart disease as a problem for adults, not your young children. But diet and exercise habits started in childhood can begin a lifetime of heart health, or a lifetime of heart damage.
School-Aged Child Nutrition
Eating healthy after-school snacks is important at this age, as these snacks may contribute up to one-third of the total calorie intake for the day.
