A child's nutrition is important to their overall health. Proper nutrition can prevent many medical problems, including becoming overweight, developing weak bones, and developing diabetes. It will also ensure that a child physically grows to their full potential. This class will discuss nutritious meals, snacks and portion sizes for infants up to 3 years of age.
