Nutrition is a crucial part of the development and health of children. It ensures robust immune systems, improved learning. Healthy children live and learn better. Individuals with optimum nutrition are more productive and can fully realise their potential.
Around the age of 4-6 months, an infant’s need for energy and nutrients starts to exceed what is provided by breast milk, and complementary foods are necessary to meet those needs. An infant of this age is also developmentally ready for other foods. This transition is referred to as complementary feeding.
