Nutrition for school-aged child
Children ages 6 through 12 continue to need healthful foods and nutritious snacks.
- Many life-long food habits, food preferences and dislikes are established when your child is in primary school.
- Children this age are often willing to eat a wider variety of foods than they were only a few years before.
- Your child's food choices may be influenced by his family, friends and even television.
- Meals should be served at the table, not in front of the television.
