Health tips for children



Small appetite


Sweet drinks donít contain the protein, fat, iron or calcium needed for a childís growth. However, sweet drinks are full of energy (kilojoules) and can fill children up, making them less hungry for other foods. When consumed too often, sweet drinks may cause a low intake of nutrients. Problems such as iron deficiency, anaemia and failure to thrive may occur in babies and toddlers who replace food such as breast milk, formula or solids with sweet drinks.
