Pediatric Diets

You want your child to eat healthy foods, but do you know which nutrients are necessary and in what amounts?

Nutrition for kids is based on the same principles as nutrition for adults. Everyone needs the same types of nutrients — such as vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, protein and fat. Children, however, need different amounts of specific nutrients at different ages.

So what's the best formula to fuel your child's growth and development? Check out these nutrition basics for girls and boys at various ages

  • Protein - Choose seafood, lean meat and poultry, eggs, beans, peas, soy products, and unsalted nuts and seeds.
  • Fruit - Encourage your child to eat a variety of fresh, canned, frozen or dried fruits — rather than fruit juice.
  • Vegetables - Serve a variety of fresh, canned, frozen or dried vegetables.
  • Dairy - Encourage your child to eat and drink fat-free or low-fat dairy products, such as milk, yogurt, cheese or fortified soy beverages.
