JIMENEZ ORTEGA, Ana Isabel; MARTINEZ GARCIA, Rosa María; VELASCO RODRIGUEZ-BELVIS, Marta  y  RUIZ HERRERO, Jana. From infant to child: feeding in different stages. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2017, vol.34, suppl.4, pp.3-7. ISSN 1699-5198.

Proper nutrition during childhood is necessary to: allow adequate growth and development, achieve optimal physical and psychic performance, maintain and improve health and recover more easily in disease processes. The first months of life (the infant stage) are a stage in which many rapid changes take place (anthropometric, body composition, maturation of organs and systems...), which suppose a high demand from nutritional point of view, in the quantitative aspect and especially in the qualitative aspect. After infant stage, preschool children feeding is an opportunity to acquire healthy habits and introduce new foods, textures, flavors, colors, etc., which will favor the autonomy and development of the individual, as well as being essential to maintain growth and development.
