Nutrition Throughout the Lifespan

This page will discuss dietary recommendations for the different phases in your life. When pregnant, a woman needs to eat a little bit more food to nourish the little one who grows in her belly, while children need energy to grow, play and blossom.

The foundation of healthy eating habits is laid in childhood. Children´s eating habits often reflect their parent´s eating habits, which makes it essential that parent´s eat healthfully. It is important that children get all the nutrients they need through regular meals such as breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper. The need for energy increases as children grow, while adults stabilize at a certain level. The elderly have similar nutritional needs as adults but require less energy. The different periods in our lives mean that one must think a little more about how best to tailor a nutritious diet for the life stage that one is presently at.
