About Our Site
KidsAndNutrition was formed to offer a unique reference point on maintaining a healthy and nutritious diet in children.
KidsAndNutrition is a constantly revised collection of articles put together to create a 'one stop shop' for information on maintaining a healthy and nutritious diet for children.
It offers help and advice for parents and others trying to create healthy diets for children in their care, as well as a resource for teaching children good and lifelong eating habits.
Beginning with babies, the experts writing KidsAndNutrition will lead you on a nutritional journey through childhood to the teenage years.
Feeding babies correctly provides them with a vital start in life - the website discusses breast- versus bottle-feeding and helps with the important step from milk to solid foods.
The Toddler section looks at how to encourage a toddler to eat and enjoy a balanced diet, an important beginning for a life of healthy eating. As children grow from toddlers to pre-teens, their nutritional needs change, and they also gain more independence and want to have more say in what they want to eat, whether it's by becoming a picky eater, or deciding against eating meat or foreign foods.
Teenage years bring their own issues, from under eating to overeating, and the associated body image concerns and related impact on long-term health.
