In Childhood/ adulthood, the requirement for nutrition increases. Dietary energy must be sufficient To ensure growth & spare proteins from being used for energy. Protein requirement for children includes not only basal losses but in addition, an allowance is also made for growth. A higher fat intake has been recommended for children in view of the high energy density. Vitamins & minerals are necessary for normal growth & development. Insufficient intake can cause impaired growth & deficiency like anemia.
