Nutritional needs differ at different stages of life. For the newborn, there is no better food than breast milk. Older children need a proper balance of foods to ensure good growth and development, whilst for adolescents, dietary habits and food preferences which affect energy consumption and nutrient intake are generally developed during this period. However, for both children and adults, some principles are equally applicable including the need to ensure that food is handled well and safe to eat and to enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods.
