||The nutrition of children is based on the same principles as nutrition for adults. Everyone no matter little or adult needs the same nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates and proteins. However, infants and children need different amounts according to age. Infant nutrition is important to ensure that complete nutrients are given to infants for optimal mental and physical development.
