Yale Guide to Kid's Nutrition

   -   Only seven foods comprise 95 percent of food allergies: milk, soy, fish, wheat, eggs, peanuts, and tree nuts. Kids nutrition facts
   -   Children with middle ear infections may suffer a reduced ability to taste foods and may enjoy them less.
   -   2 cups of raw broccoli has the same number of calories as 1 teaspoon of butter.
   -   The number of taste buds on the tongue varies widely and is genetically determined. The tongue of a "supertaster" may have as many as 1100 taste buds per square centimeter, while a "nontaster" may have as few as 11 taste buds in the same sized area.
   -   Children who are allergic to cow's milk should also avoid eating margarine.
   -   By law, labels on foods intended for children under two years of age cannot list the amount of fats, cholesterol, or calories from fat. Dietary fat is an important component of the diet for children under two and should not be limited.
   -   Breast-Feeding may set the stage for the ability of children to accept new foods, since the flavor of breast milk can vary with the composition of the mother's diet.
   -   Children will have achieved half of their full adult height by 18 to 24 months of age. (So, at 2 years, multiply by 2 to get possible adult height!)
