Abstract
A lack of an appropriate feeding in early childhood is a major risk factor for ill-health throughout the course of life. This article presents an indication of nutrition learning for children health care programs in the society. A healthy diet helps the children to grow and learn, and prevents obesity and weight-related diseases, such as diabetes. The life-long impacts of malnutrition in childhood may include poor school performance, reduced productivity, impaired intellectual and social development, or chronic diseases. Through the first year, breastmilk or infant formula is the main source of calories and nutrients. Babies may be started directly on normal family food titled baby-led weaning if attention is given to choking hazards. Adults can learn that variety, balance, proportionality and moderation are vital characteristics of a nutritious diet. A nutritious diet includes a selection of healthful foods from each of the food groups in the serving dish. These food groups are grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy and protein. For child feeding, choose seafood, lean meat and poultry, eggs, beans, peas, soy products, and unsalted nuts and seeds. Encourage the child to eat a variety of fresh, canned, frozen or dried fruits, vegetables, grains and dairy rather than fruit juice. At an age of 5 years, children are growing quickly and often become even more active when they start to go school. They need an adequate intake of energy and a diet that provides all the nutrients needed for growth and development. Children might eat breakfast, take three meals daily, and consume milk of any type, solid fats and whole grains. So, the parents ought to learn about children's nutrient requirements, as some of these such as the necessities for iron and calcium, change as child ages. This eating pattern supports a child's normal growth and development, and provides enough total energy and meets the recommended daily allowances for all nutrients including iron and calcium.
