View StatisticsShow Statistical Information
Abstract[Foreword]. Young children from about six months to three years of age are often the least well nourished members of their families. Their needs for energy, protein and iron in particular, often go unmet not only in families with limited incomes, but even in those that are more fortunate. Many parents do not realize the special needs of this group... This Guide was prepared by Mrs. P. Machew, Public Health Nutritionist, CFNI, and is divided into two parts. Part I deals with basic nutrition facts and explains the multimix principle of meal planning based on food groups. It outlines in detail how to feed children from approximately four months until they are eating all foods from the "family pot". Part II presents a number of recipes, some taken from the "family pot" and some requiring special preparation. suggested meal plans are also included in the Appendices.
