What nutrients should my child have in his diet?
Your child should have a balance of macronutrients and micronutrients from a variety of foods. Macronutrients are nutrients required in big quantities for our bodies, like carbohydrates, protein and fats. These nutrients are essential to provide energy and support the growth and development of your child. Micronutrients are the vitamins and minerals that we all require in trace quantities to further support the overall growth and development as well as your child’s future physical health. Iron is one such micronutrient, which supports your child’s growing potential. Learn more about macronutrients here or micronutrients here.
