  • Pediatric Nutrition

Balanced and right nutrition in the early days of life is very important. Nutritional requirements of infants are different from an adult as the nutrients help in proper physical and mental growth. Lack of vital nutrients in the diet during the growing up stages lead to serious health conditions.

  • Nutritional  deficiencies and malnutrition

The vitamins and minerals collectively called as micronutrients are not synthesized in the body and are supplemented in the diet.
