Nutrition for Toddlers 1-5 years

The active life of a toddler requires lots of food; the best there is. At this time, children are growing and need food that makes them strong and healthy. The most common elements that children can run short through ages one to five are vitamin D, calcium and iron. A child needs calcium to strengthen bones and muscles, even his or her teeth. Vitamin D is needed for a toddler’s body to absorb calcium and iron is important for a child´s development and growth (too little iron also makes a child pale and frequently tired and sleepy). In the article that follows, you can read about which foods contain the needed micro-nutrients for children and other important guidelines for optimal childhood nutrition.
