Vital for your child's health, growth and development
Children need to be physically active and eat the correct balance of nutrients to maintain a healthy weight and stay fit.
Healthy eating during childhood reduces the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity. It also enhances their health, appearance, and enjoyment of life.
