Not everyone would require the same type of nutrients for their well being and this applies to children too. A child's nutrition varies from that of an adult. The reason being that a child's bodily function focuses more on the growth and development. A childhood nutrition development treatment laid down by a pediatrician should adequately address this factor focusing more on the general development of a child. In the recent times where children are becoming obese as adults, their weight management should also be looked into. Standard childhood nutrition information should be having a fair share of proteins from seafood, poultry, eggs and beans. Fruits in their natural form should be eaten and not the canned fruits as it has a lot of refined sugar. Vegetables and greens should also be made part of a healthy diet. Carrots, peas and spinach are rich in vitamins that should be part of the diet any day. Vegetables with low sodium content should also part of the diet. Having a healthy diet of whole grains and whole wheat would also help with good nutrition. Dairy products are naturally good for children and with a good source of vitamins. Healthy intake of dairy products is good for growing children. However, parents should be aware of allergies that certain foods can cause in children like some nuts and even milk. In some cases children may be lactose intolerant and cannot consume sufficient milk. So they can take any supplement the doctor suggests.
