    Poor dietary habits early in life can lead to stunted bone growth and muscle development in children. Under or malnourished children also have poorer development of coordination and motor skills. There are a number of vitamins and minerals that are a necessary part of a child’s diet, without which certain adverse health conditions may develop. For example, insufficient iron intake can lead to anemia. Proper nutrition also affects a child’s energy level and mood which can in turn affect their concentration and learning abilities.
