Complete and Balanced Nutrition
What is complete and balanced nutrition? A balanced diet must contain sufficient amount of carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and fibre in the required amounts and in the right proportion. Each of these nutrients has a vital role in the all-round growth and development of children.
Is your child consuming a balanced diet?
According to a local survey+, most 3 year-old children in Singapore are not consuming a well-balanced diet as recommended by the Health Promotion Board (HPB).

As good eating habits start from young, you should evaluate your child’s diet to ensure it is well-balanced. An easy guide for parents is to use “My Healthy Plate” developed by HPB, which shows you what to eat in the correct proportions to have a balanced and healthy diet.
