The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) announced that August is Kids Eat Right month! In honor of this, we thought it would be a great time to share some basic information on early childhood nutrition.
Childhood is typically thought of as a time when you can eat whatever you want and get away with it. But, take a moment to think about the substantial amount of growth and development those little bodies go through. Now, think about all of the childhood eating habits you had to force yourself to break once you were older. Providing your child with optimal nutrition and creating healthy lifestyle behaviors only benefits your child–in the present, as well as the future!
Instead of having you suffer through a wordy lecture, why don’t we show you what early childhood nutrition is? Enter the beauty of an infographic!
