MetadataShow full item record
[Best practices for feeding your child from 0 to 5 years of age] Diet, feeding and eating behaviors when your child is a baby and during her early childhood play an important role in establishing healthy food preferences and behaviors, preventing both undernutrition and obesity. Food safety is also important as the immune systems of infants and young children are still developing. As a result they are highly vulnerable to foodborne illness. This brochure, intended for parents and caregivers of infants and children under 5 years of age, is intended to give general guidance on what and how to feed to foster healthy growth and development of young children.The production of this manual was possible due to the kind financial contribution of the Government of Canada through its Department of Global Affairs.
