Nutrition for School-Aged Child in Children

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

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.
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
