Health & Physical Development - Infants (Birth to 12 Months)
Every baby grows and develops at their own pace, but one thing's for sure - the first year is a rollercoaster of change. At this stage, good nutrition promotes not only physical growth and health but also cognitive skills such as memory, problem solving and decision making. Make sure to give your baby plenty of "tummy time" to practice kicking, waving their arms and rolling over - and introduce care routines like hand washing, mouth care and routine bathing.
