Life Cycle Nutrition- Given the significance of nutrition at each stage of the life cycle, evaluate the nutrition recommendations and dietary guidelines for each of the following developmental stages: pregnancy, infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Examine three ways of how we can develop healthy nutritional habits from the onset and carry these habits with us throughout the life cycle? What are the consequences of not doing so?
Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by your course text and a minimum of one additional scholarly source. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers. Each peer response should contain 100 words at a minimum. First, reflect on your own research and the findings shared by your peers. Then, select one stage of the life cycle and create one convincing statement on why this is the most crucial stage in your opinion.
Please note: each peer response should contain a different life cycle stage.
