Pregnancy, Breastfeeding And The First Year Of Life

Nutrition through the Life Cycle: Pregnancy, Breastfeeding and Infant feeding, Chapter 17

The chapters covering nutrition through the life cycle deserve a full 3 – 5 credit class. For the purpose of an overview, it is most important that students understand the differences in nutrient needs among the various stages of growth, development and maintenance through the ages. These differences are influenced by body changes that affect metabolism, growth rates, absorption effectiveness, activity levels to name a few. The food based guidelines adjust to caloric and nutrient needs and are reflected in various Plate Diagrams intended for specific age groups.
