Milk, cheese, yoghurt, soya beans and nuts are rich in calcium, which is needed for healthy bones and teeth.

Meat, particularly red meat and fish are rich sources of iron. Pulses (beans and lentils), green vegetables and fortified cereals are also good sources of iron. Iron is needed for healthy blood flow.

Citrus fruit (such as oranges and lemons), tomatoes and potatoes these are all good sources of vitamin C, which is essential for health. Vitamin C can also help the body to absorb iron, so it's a good idea to give your child some food or drink containing vitamin C, such as a glass of fruit juice.

Green vegetables, carrots and apricots are good sources of vitamin A, which is important for good vision and healthy skin.

Try to make sure that your child eats snack foods such as cakes, biscuits, chocolate and sweets occasionally or in small amounts.
