Key Nutritional Components

Breastfeeding: The first and most natural form of nutrition for infants is breastfeeding. It provides the ideal nutrition and supports immune system development [2].

Balanced Diet: As children grow, introducing a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and dairy is crucial [3].
