Childhood is all about growth, and one needs nutritious food for healthy growth. Most children have significant likes and dislikes, which may hamper our attempts to provide them with a healthy diet. Amala Earth takes care of the needs of mothers and children alike.
Nutrient Requirements Among Children
We all understand the importance of a balanced diet, especially for our children, for whom food forms an essential part of the growth and development years. From a newborn baby to a teenager, food requirements change with respect to quantity, nutrients, number of meals per day, and individual preferences.
As a thumb rule, an individual should ideally limit their child's calorie intake, especially when it comes to artificial sweeteners, sodium, and saturated and trans fats. Instead, opt for a balanced diet of proteins, fruits, vegetables, grains, and dairy.
