Breastfeeding has important ingredients to build the baby’s immune system. Pediatric nutrition must consist of essential vitamins and minerals for the growth and development. Proteins are the basic units required for the construction of the body muscles and in all the metabolic activities of the body. To increase the calcium level intake, dairy products are desirable.
