Good nutrition is essential for the growth and development that occurs during a child’s first year of life.
Across the continuum, very few children are getting the nutrition they need to survive, grow and develop.
Per cent of children: put to the breast within one hour of birth, exclusively breastfed (0-5 months); receiving solid, semi-solid or soft foods (6-8 months), with a minimum meal frequency, minimum diet diversity and minimum acceptable diet (6-23 months) and continued breastfeeding at 1 year (12-15 months) and 2 years (20-23 months), 2015.

Nutrition: An important part of your child’s life…
Vitamin A: Importance in Life…
- Vitamin A is critical for vision as an essential component of rhodopsin- protein that absorbs light in the retinal receptors. Supports the normal differentiation and functioning of the conjunctival membranes and cornea.
- Supports cell growth and differentiation, playing a critical role in the normal formation and maintenance of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs.
- The role of vitamin A in innate and adaptive immunity may also include reducing susceptibility to and/or severity of other infections.
- Preterm infants do not have adequate liver stores of vitamin A at birth and their plasma concentrations of retinol often remain low throughout the first year of life.
Vitamin D: Importance in Life…
- Vitamin D is essential for promoting calcium absorption in the digestive system and maintaining adequate blood levels of calcium and phosphorus, which allows for normal bone mineralization. Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin and brittle.
- Vitamin D is important to the body in many other ways as well like, muscles need it to move, nerves need it to carry messages between the brain and every body part, and the immune system needs vitamin D to fight off invading bacteria and viruses.
Zinc: Importance in Life…
- Breast milk does not provide recommended amounts of zinc for infants aged 7–12 months. In addition to breast milk, older infants should consume age-appropriate zinc supplementations.
- Zinc supplementation has improved the growth rate of many children. it produces very significant positive effects on both height & weight measure of the children.
- Zinc promotes wound healing and enhances the functions of the immune system.
Iron: Importance in Life…
- Iron is an essential component of hemoglobin, an erythrocyte protein that transfers oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. As a component of myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles, iron supports metabolism.
- Iron deficiency can delay normal infant motor function (normal activity and movement) or mental function (normal thinking and processing skills).
- Iron is also necessary for growth, development, normal cellular functioning, and synthesis of some hormones and connective tissue.
