We all know that kids are not little adults, and this is especially true when it comes to eating. Most children have very particular eating habits with specific likes and dislikes that can make mealtime a challenge for any parent. Kids' growing bodies require special amounts of all nutrients - particularly protein and calcium - and it's important for kids to develop nutritious eating habits early in life.
One way parents can boost their children's nutrition is through careful food selection. A child's early experiences with food help structure lifelong eating habits, which means that from the start parents should aim to make mealtime healthy and fun. Yogurt suits the needs of parents and children by helping to provide the calcium, protein, vitamins and minerals necessary for healthy growth and development while delivering great taste and variety. Plus, yogurt is easy to include in meals and snacks because it's so versatile and convenient.
