More nutritional #SweetBaby tips for you and your baby

Iron is important for your child's development. Iron from meat and fish, and also iron from plant foods are both necessary for his nutritional development. A lack of iron can easily cause iron-deficiency anemia which can affect your child's physical and mental development.

Before they turn 2, young children need the energy and vitamins only provided by fat. Whole milk, yogurt, cheese and oily fish - these types of food are very important to provide your little one the right amount of fat crucial for their health.
