Diet and nutrition play a significant role in determining and influencing the growth and development of your child. You should prioritize feeding your children right; it will directly reflect their health, stature, and developmental milestones.
This means that as parents, we need to always keep a keen eye on what our children are eating. This is often easier said than done. Planning their meals when they are at home during school breaks gives you a chance to ensure that they are eating healthy and balanced meals.
