Healthy Eating for Kids:
A one-year-old baby needs approximately 1150 calories a day.
These come mainly from breast milk or formula milk, and some solids, in the first year.
In his first two years a baby grows more than any other time in his life. It is best to avoid salt and sugar for babies, salt posing a danger to the baby‘s kidneys and sugar encouraging a taste for sweet things.
There are foods, however, that must be included to ensure healthy eating for kids.
While low calorie versions of milk are good for adults but children need full fat milk.
Babies should not be fed semi-skimmed before they are two, or skimmed milk before they are five.
