Pediatric Nutrition is well-defined as maintaining a well-balanced diet consisting of the abundant nutrients and the adequate caloric consumption which is mandatory to stimulate development and withstand the physiological necessities at several phases of a child's growth & development. It also includes Nutritional requirements in infants & children and various caring practices.  Due to deficiency of nutrition particularly during critical ages of growth, causes improper development or major illness, such as anaemia due to the deficiency of iron or scurvy due to lack of vitamin C. Nutrition plays a critical role in childhood development, which results in both good and bad. Proper nutrition helps in the appropriate growth and development of children allowing them to reach their complete potential. During the growing years between infancy and adolescence, adequate nutrition is of utmost importance. Proper diet will not only support the normal growth and development of a growing child, but also supports their immune system, and develops lifelong eating habits. Although dietary needs, appetites, and tastes will vary widely throughout childhood, it is important to consistently provide your child with healthy options from all of the major food groups.
