infants and their nutritional needs
Master the zooming canvas in minutes
breastfeeding vs formula feeding
0-6 MONTHS = must be breastfeed exclusively
7-12 MONTHS = breastfeed + formula feed
After 12 MONTHS = breastfeed + formula feed + first food (cereals + porridge + vegetables)
by AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics)
- Vital for the building of infant's body tissue, including repair and development.
- Strengthens infant's muscles and Perform specialized functions in regulating body processes.
*The protein requirements for infants are much more than adults as they are growing rapidly and developing new protein tissue.
Sources: breast or formula milk for infants 0-6 months, Fish, yogurt, pure meat and eggs.
0-6 months: 9.1g/day
7-12 months: 11g/day
Why Is Good Nutrition
Crucial to the infants?
1. Promotes Babies’ Growth and Development
2. Protects Babies from Diseases
4. Promote Early Good Eating
- Supports infant's growth and development
- Enhance infant's metabolism.
Sources: Breast milk, Formula milk, Dairy products, whole grains, cereal, vegetables.
0-6 months: 60g/day
7-12 months: 95g/day
2. FATS (
- Provide the required nutrients for infant's normal brain development
- Facilitate infants in absorbing the essential vitamins A, D, E, and K.
Sources: Breast milk, yogurt and eggs.
0-6 months: 31g/day
7-12 months: 30g/day
1. VITAMIN A
- Formation and maintenance of healthy skin, hair and mucous membranes.
- maintain immune systems.

*Found in Breast Milk, Formula milk and fish oil
Their nutritional decision
will determines the baby's Growth, health and lifestyle in the upcoming future.
Deficiency of macronutrients
CARBOHYDRATES & PROTEINS
- Stunt the growth of the infants.
- Failure in regulating body process of the infants
- Failure in building infant's body tissue, including repair and development.
FATS (OMEGA-3 DHA)
- Infant's brain unable to develop completely
- Cause brain problems such as autism and pervasive developmental delay.
deficiency of essential vitamins
1. IRON (ZINC)
- Enhance blood formation.
- Assists in wound healing
sources: breast milk, Cereals
0-6 months: 4mg/day
7-12 months: 5mg/day
- Bone and tooth development.
- Blood clotting.
- Maintenance of healthy nerves and muscles.
Sources: Breast milk , formula milk
0-6 months: 210mg/day
7-12 months: 270mg/day
- weekened immune system - high risk to develop diseases
- excess bleeding when injured - failure of blood clotting
- Unhealthy blood cells
- nervous system failed to function
Breast milk is proven to have higher content of nutrients compared to Formula milk. But, infants still need formula milk after 6 months.
Moms play an important roles in providing a sufficient nutrition to their babies.
Insufficient nutrition will lead to several disease and eventually lead to death.

- Efficient blood clotting.
Sources: Formula milk, Leafy vegetables

7-12 months: 2.5μg/day
3. VITAMIN B12
- Healthy blood cells and Proper functioning of the nervous system.
Sources: Breast milk, Meat, Dairy products
