Question and answer
What nutrients are important during various lifecycle stages?
Answer from : Newborn Nutrition: Newborns require minerals for strong bones and immune systems. [ Breastfeeding is the ideal way to ensure that a newborn is getting what he needs, according to the Mayo Clinic website. If for some reason you can't breastfeed, formula can provide sufficient nutrients. Vitamin D is important for bone formation, and breast milk is sometimes deficient in it. Check
with your pediatrician to see if supplements are required. Baby and Toddler Nutrition: Children should be eating some solid foods by the time they're 6 months old. Although many parents give their babies cereals first and then vegetables, fruit and meats, the American Dietetic Association advises that pureed meat or poultry might be the best food to introduce early, as it provides iron and zinc. Introduce one food at a time, and stop giving your baby any new food if you see signs of an allergic reaction, such as a rash or diarrhea. As your baby grows older, he can experiment with an increasing number of finger foods until he is primarily eating what the family has at mealtimes. Childhood and Teen Nutrition: Nutrition for children and teens should focus on a balanced diet, with activity levels factored in. Children and teens tend to be active and usually require more calories than infants and the elderly. Some children and teens, however, may not get the exercise they need and run the risk of becoming obese. For these children and teens especially, a healthy diet that downplays fast and prepared foods is important. A diet based on the U.S. Department of Agriculture's food pyramid helps to ensure healthy grown and development. Adult Nutrition: Adults, both young and older, need to focus on preventing diet-related health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. Getting essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein while limiting unhealthy fats and excessive sugar are important. Limiting fast and processed foods are just as important at this stage of life as they are during childhood. Exercise also plays a crucial role in remaining healthy. ]

Given an example of a digestive tract, analyze the form and function of each specific digestive region or organ (including acid or enzyme formation) while tracing the movement of food from its entry into the tract until its exit.
Weegy: The human digestive tract is comprised of a series of hollow organs.The organs all have specific functions for the digestive process, which entails the breakdown of food, [ the absorption of nutrients and the expulsion of waste. Mout is where the food enters and where it is chewed to facilitate processing.it is swallowed into the esophagus, atube that uses peristalsis,muscular contractions making wave-like motions, to usher food into the stomach.Stomach is the second phase of digestion,where food is stored and broken down by being churned with gastric fluids and then emptied into the small intestine.Small intestines are where most actual digestion tales place, and most nutrients from food are absorbed through the walls of this organ.Large intestine is where remaining water is absorbed and leftovers from the digestive process are held in the colon for expulsion as waste.The liver and pancreas though not part of the digestive tract, the liver and pancreas are important digestive organs because they produce the fluids that are used to break down food.Anus is where the digested food exit which is now becomes waste. ] (More)
