This paper provides facts and figures about malnutrition statistics amongst babies and toddlers. It explains that a high percentage of children are malnutritioned simply because of their fussy eating habits and not because of neglect. Following an introduction of the data, the paper examines 21 literary sources and summarizes the opinions of each one for the causes and consequences of toddler malnutrition and what can be do to reverse this trend.
From the Paper:"According to the United States Department of Agriculture, barely of all toddlers and preschoolers today eat a balanced diet (Schaaf 2002), a serious health concern to all, especially to parents. Undersecretary of Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services Shirley Watkins ascribes the situation to the fact that, when these young children stop being breastfed and receiving baby foods in jars, their regular servings of milk, fruits and vegetables do not replace the nutrients they used to get from breast milk and jarred baby foods."
