A child’s diet forms the cornerstone of life long health and forms healthy eating habits from an early age that influence health outcomes in adulthood.
Children have increased nutritional needs to cope with the intense adaptation of growth and development that occurs throughout childhood and puberty and respond well to dietary intervention. A well balanced diet supports a healthy immune response and therefore aids in fighting off germs and viruses and enables a fast recovery from illness. In addition to a healthy immune system, a well balanced diet is vital for brain health and development.
