Meeting Children’s Nutritional Needs, from Foods to Supplements

Meeting Children’s Nutritional Needs, from Foods to Supplements

What key nutrients do kids need when, from the first 1,000 days (conception to two years) to early childhood and the teen years? Should kids take supplements? If so, when, and what are the nutritional gaps parents should be thinking about? Are parents looking for dedicated products/brands marketed towards children, or are they giving their kids the same products and brands that they are consuming as adults? What formats and flavors work best for kids?
