The Importance Of Infant & Child Nutrition
Nutrition in infancy and childhood forms a very important foundation for health, development and even IQ later in life.
Providing your child with a healthy balanced diet early on helps teach positive eating habits and build the correct relationships with food. Most illnesses have an impact on nutritional requirements and dietary intake.
A paediatric dietitian has the knowledge and skills to adapt and modify your child's nutritional intake to ensure that they are receiving the appropriate amounts of nutrition to compensate for this and still encourage optimal growth.
After 8 years spent in the UK specialising in Paediatric and Neonatal Nutrition, I relocated to the North Coast of KZN in South Africa in 2009, where I work alongside the paediatricians and other healthcare professionals of the beautiful and thriving Dolphin Coast.
