Good nutrition provides a solid foundation in the early stages of life for healthy adulthood.
Right from cognitive and physical development,nutrition plays a fundamental role in how children develop.
Just like building a house, without the right raw materials and foundation, the house is bound to collapse or develop cracks along the way.
It is therefore crucial to feed children right especially in the first 1000 days of life.
Providing them with varied or diversified nutrient-dense meals daily doesn’t have to be very expensive or exotic.
Readily available local foods like vegetables, fruits and high fibre foods can be presented in appealing ways to reduce costs.
Meal times with family can also be made exciting if there is variety to chose from and if families eat together.
Aside providing children with healthy options on the table, it is also a time to teach them about making healthy choices with food so they cangrow with healthy eating habits.
The best investment any household can make is to ensure children get right nutrition as nutrition forms the bedrock for good health.
So let’s help them to eat right to get their health right!
