Nutrition for the first five yearsNutrition for the first five years
Marked by rapid growth and developmental milestones, the first five years of a child’s life are particularly formative. Infants and toddlers need a regular supply of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids (EFAs) and other nutrients to support development of the immune system, bones, brain, eyes and central nervous system. In addition, a wide range of foods is introduced during these years, opening the door to possible food allergies, as well as potential issues with obesity and diabetes.
