Feeding and Breastfeeding


The child already knows how to eat on his/her own. When the child eats together with the family, he/she eats better. It is necessary that he/she have a snack in between meals, for his/her stomach is small and cannot take much food. In these snacks it is advisable to offer him/her regional fruit. The child who since early age eats several fruit, vegetables and legumes receives bigger quantities of vitamin, iron and fibres, besides acquiring healthy eating habits.

It is recommended that in the first years of age the child is prevented from eating food with sugar, coffee, canned food, fried food, soft drinks, candies, caramels, salty snacks and other cakes, biscuits etc. They are not healthy and they take the appetite for the child to eat nutritious food.
