"Summeris not just a season – it’s an opportunity to refresh, relax, learn and grow,for kids. I often meet moms who come to me for advice on a balanced diet fortheir kids. I always recommend a lot of outdoor play, minimal screen time ontelevision and phone, and most importantly, I tell them not to lose focus onbalanced nutrition. Children’s diet should be wholesome, healthy and have theright blend of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals to supporttheir growth and development needs,” said Dr Indu Khosla, practicing pediatrician at CloudnineHospital.
“A child’sformative years, two to six years, lay the foundation for motor, cognitive,social, and emotional skills for life. During this period, children witnessrapid linear growth, continued development of organs and neuralexpansion. Therefore, this is the time when children have specificnutritional requirements and high energy needs. Along with a variety of foodsto ensure a balanced diet, for some children it is imperative to introduce anoral nutrition supplement formulated to take care of nutrient requirements forthis age so that they do not miss out on overall growth,” said DrEileen Canday, HOD Nutrition & Dietetic Department, Sir H.N.
