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.  Food preferences for personal, religious and medical reasons should be appropriately considered. Sufficient time should be allowed for meals so that children do not feel hurried.
