PEDIATRIC NUTRITION AND DIET
During the growing years between infancy and adolescence, adequate nutrition is of utmost importance. Your child's diet will not only support their normal growth and development, but also supports their immune system, and develops lifelong eating habits. Although dietary needs, appetites, and tastes will vary widely throughout childhood, it is important to consistently provide your child with healthy options from all of the major food groups.
Some children have different nutritional needs, either due to
a chronic condition, such as diabetes, food
allergies, or being under- or overweight.
