Childhood Nutrition, sometimes not that easy!
With the rise in evidence supporting nutritional wellbeing of children impacting health throughout the lifespan, it is common to be concerned about your child’s eating habits.
For most parents, knowing what to feed your child when isn’t even half the battle! There is so much information available, it can be hard to figure out what is right for your child. In many cases, food, mealtimes and eating can be a battleground creating stress an anxiety in the household. “I know what I want them to eat, but how do I get them to do it”? We are all very familiar with the statement “every child is different” but how does this apply to nutrition and eating?
