  • Food Guide Pyramid The Food Pyramid, developed by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), is an excellent tool to help you make healthy food choices. The food pyramid can help you choose from a variety of foods so you get the nutrients you need, and the suggested serving sizes can help you control the amount of calories, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar or sodium in your diet. Grains, Bread, Cereal and Pasta form the Base Grains, Bread, Cereal and Pasta form the Base Fruits and Vegetables Fruits and Vegetables Lean Meat and Fish, Beans, Eggs Lean Meat and Fish, Beans, Eggs Dairy Products Dairy Products Fats and Sweets Fats and Sweets

  • Vitamins and minerals With cooperation of healthy child a well planned diet provide most nutrients except iron. With cooperation of healthy child a well planned diet provide most nutrients except iron. RDA for iron during childhood (1-3 years) is 7 mg. RDA for iron during childhood (1-3 years) is 7 mg. RDA for iron during childhood (4-8 years) is 10 mg. RDA for iron during childhood (4-8 years) is 10 mg. As iron is low source of iron, so much consumption of milk contribute to low iron intake. Milk should be limited to 3-4 cups which allows room for diet rich in iron like lean meats, legumes, fish, poultry and cereals etc. As iron is low source of iron, so much consumption of milk contribute to low iron intake. Milk should be limited to 3-4 cups which allows room for diet rich in iron like lean meats, legumes, fish, poultry and cereals etc. A child diet may also be deficient in other micronutrients like zinc, vitamin D & E. Those children who are on low fat diets i.e. low fat dairy products suffer more. A child diet may also be deficient in other micronutrients like zinc, vitamin D & E.

  • ADOLESCENCE It is the time between the onset of puberty and adulthood. It is the time between the onset of puberty and adulthood. Boys grow about 8 inches, gain about 45 pounds and increase their lean body mass. Boys grow about 8 inches, gain about 45 pounds and increase their lean body mass. Girls grow about 6 inches, gain about 35 pounds and increase their body fat. Girls grow about 6 inches, gain about 35 pounds and increase their body fat. Growth through adolescence is hormone driven. Growth spurts for girls begin Growth through adolescence is hormone driven. Growth spurts for girls begin between ages 10.5 and 11 years with a peak in the rate of growth at around age 12. For boys growth spurts usually begin between ages 12.5 and 13 and peak at around age 14. This period of maximal growth lasts about 2 years. Adolescence is an uncomfortable time for the teen who is concerned with body image Adolescence is an uncomfortable time for the teen who is concerned with body image or body changes or athletic activities. Low nutrient snacks are a large part of the diet and adequate amounts of fruits and Low nutrient snacks are a large part of the diet and adequate amounts of fruits and vegetables are missing.

  • PREGNANCY Time of tremendous changes, guided by changing levels of hormones. Uterine, breast and adipose tissues grow, blood volume expands and gastrointestinal motility slows. All these changes have nutritional and dietary implications for pregnant women. Time of tremendous changes, guided by changing levels of hormones. Uterine, breast and adipose tissues grow, blood volume expands and gastrointestinal motility slows. All these changes have nutritional and dietary implications for pregnant women. Weight gained during pregnancy is a combination of fetal and maternal tissues and fluids. Weight gain recommendations are based on BMI prior to pregnancy. Women of normal weight (BMI=19.8-26) should gain 25-35 pounds over the course of pregnancy Most of this weight gain occurs during the second & third trimester.

  • Unless the lactating mother reduce their physical activity, breastfeeding women need about 500 more Kcal/day than they did when they were not pregnant. Obtaining adequate energy and using the Food Guide Pyramid to balance choices most lactating women can obtain all the nutrients they need from their diet. Alcohol, cigarettes and drugs should not be used while breast feeding.
