Guidelines for Healthier Eating

Child's nutrition is important to his/ her overall health. Proper nutrition can also prevent many medical problems, including becoming overweight, developing weak bones, and developing diabetes. It will also ensure that a child physically grows to her full potential.

Dairy products provide protein, vitamins and minerals and are an excellent source of calcium. Your schoolage child should have 2 to 3 servings of milk, yogurt and cheese each day.

Vegetables supply you with vitamins, including vitamin A and C, and folate, minerals, such as iron and magnesium, and fiber. Plus they are low in fat. You should have 2 to 3 servings of vegetables each day.

Fruits and fruit juices provide Vitamin A and C and potassium. You should have 2-4 servings of fruit each day.

Cereal provide complex carbohydrates (starches) and provide vitamins, minerals, and fiber. You need at least 6 to 11 servings of foods from this food group each day.
