Nutritional needs of your growing baby


Babies need a lot of nutrients, more than at any other time in their life. Experts say breast milk is the best food for babies in the first year of life. It contains hormones as well as the proper amounts of protein, sugar, fat, and vitamins to aid your baby's growth and development. It's easy to digest, and it's full of antibodies that protect your child from infections. Breast milk contains fatty acids like DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which help your baby's brain and vision develop properly. #NationalNutritionWeek
