Adult Nutrition Adequate nutrition is important throughout an adult’s life for maintenance of their well being. In younger adults, it helps in providing energy and building muscle mass. With ageing, individuals' lives may become sedentary. During the middle years the key role of good nutrition is to maintain optimal weight and prevent or manage non-communicable diseases. For example: Diabetes, heart diseases, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, etc. Nutrition during adulthood is critical to build a strong immune system. It ensures adequate intake of various nutrients, thus preventing any nutritional deficiencies. For example: Inadequate intake or iron, folate and vitamin B12 can result in anemia and deficiency of calcium results in osteoporosis. Thus, there is a vital need for adopting healthy eating habits. Selecting the right pre-cooking processes and cooking methods is also important for proper digestion and absorption of the nutrients.
Breastfeeding Breast milk is the ultimate superfood for a newborn’s brain development. It contains a variety of nutrients, growth factors and hormones. It cannot be replicated in infant formula. Its impact on brain development is unparalleled. Every baby must be breastfed exclusively and adequately for the first 6 months of life. Breastfeeding must be continued for at least 2 years. To get the many benefits of breastfeeding, it must be done using the proper technique. The proper technique of breastfeeding is discussed in 6 spoken tutorials on breastfeeding holds and latching. To initiate breastfeeding soon after birth, performing skin-to-skin contact after delivery and breast crawl is very important. Expressing breast milk by hand, storing it and feeding it properly are also very important skills for feeding an adequate amount of breastmilk to a baby.
Complementary feeding At 6 months of age, exclusive breastfeeding is not enough for a baby. Along with breast milk, nutritious home-cooked food must be given to the baby. This food is called complementary food. It must be given to a baby from 6 months to 24 months of age. It plays a crucial role in making the baby tall, healthy and intelligent. The type, consistency and amount of complementary food vary with the baby’s age. There are specific recommendations for each age group. They are discussed in detail in 2 spoken tutorials in this series. Recipes for complementary food are also demonstrated in spoken tutorials. Safe preparation, storage and feeding of complementary food are equally important for the baby and are explained in detail in spoken tutorials.
Growth charts Growth charts are charts designed to help us follow a child’s growth. They were developed through the World Health Organisation’s Multicentre Growth Reference Study. It showed that children from different countries grew up in a similar way. This means the environment played a major role in their growth. Good nutrition, health and sanitation are required for proper growth, not just genetics. The average weight and length for each age and gender were established. Growth charts compare a child's length and weight with children of the same age. These charts provide an early warning that a child has a growth problem. There are percentile growth charts and Z-score growth charts. Each growth chart is used to measure a specific growth indicator. Growth indicators are used to assess growth. They take a child’s age and measurements together into consideration. The growth indicators we cover in spoken tutorials are weight-for-age, length-for-age and weight-for-length.

Maternal Nutrition Maternal nutrition refers to the nutritional needs of women during her pregnancy and the period after childbirth. A nutrient-rich maternal diet is associated with improved health of the fetus, appropriate birth weight. Both pregnancy and lactation are associated with major metabolic and physiologic changes in the mother. The nutritional requirements increase during pregnancy to optimize maternal adaptation and fetal development. A lactating mother requires extra food to secrete adequate quantity and quality of milk and to maintain her own health. Malnutrition during these periods can lead to high prevalence of low birth weight infants and high maternal mortality. Maternal nutrition is a key regulator of fetal growth as the mother provides the macro- and micronutrients that both the fetus and placenta require to grow. Improving the mother’s diet during pregnancy and lactation can reduce the risk of medical problems for her and her infant.

Pre-Pregnancy Nutrition Pre-pregnancy nutrition refers to the nutritional needs required for women before pregnancy. It is an essential part before preparing for pregnancy. Maternal nutrition status of the mother before pregnancy influences the course of pregnancy, fetal development and the child’s health in its early life. Underweight women may have increased risk of delivering low weight babies. A nutrient rich diet helps in improving fetal health and reduces the chance of miscarriage and low weight babies. It also helps in receiving the right nutrients to support a healthy pregnancy. Healthy eating also helps to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and diabetes during pregnancy. The risk of birth defects in babies and preterm deliveries is also reduced, thus ensuring a healthy mother and a healthy offspring.
