A Children’s Nutritionist can assist from pre-conception right up to teenagers. At each stage an infant/child/teen body requires different amounts of macronutrients and micronutrients. Their diet should consist of a variety of foods that contain a range of these nutrients in the purest form possible. A Children’s Nutritionist plans menus and meal plans, that incorporate a balanced diet supporting healthy nourishment and healthy body function. They also teach children and parents on healthy and mindful eating and basic nutrition.
Physically active and growing children require good nutrition to build a healthy and strong foundation to assist them through childhood and into adulthood. Many habits and knowledge towards food are shaped during their early years, which forms the basis for future eating habits and patterns.
