Develop A Nutritional Menu For Children?
I am the secretary of the Child Development Center, where we serve children, one of which is about the fulfillment of children’s nutrition, so I would like to ask how do we develop a menu for children’s nutrition?
The preparation of a child's nutritional menu is certainly different for each child, considering the health conditions of each child and their current nutritional status is also different. For example, a child of the same age may have different nutritional needs, due to the difference in their current weight (for example, one is a bit fat but the other is a little thin), the type of physical activity (one is a lot of physical activity such as sports while the other is more active). writing and reading), the presence or absence of a disease, and gender are factors in determining a child's nutritional needs.
Moreover, if the need for nutritional preparation is used as a guideline in an institution or institution, it is better to use an official literature such as a text book or guidelines that have been published by an official agency such as the Indonesian Ministry of Health, the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI). , Indonesian Clinical Nutritionist Association (PDGKI), World health organization (WHO), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). You can coordinate with the health office according to your institution's domicile to get information to prepare the right child nutrition menu.
