Adoption Nutrition

Nutrition has been long overlooked as a key issue for foster and adopted children. New research shows that adopted children, even those who appear healthy, are often deficient in key nutrients that may impact their growth and brain development.

SPOON's Adoption Nutrition site is dedicated to helping parents and professionals understand and meet the unique nutritional needs of foster and adopted children so that they can grow and thrive. It is full of information on what every parent should know: preparing for adoption, the first year home, feeding challenges, diet tips & tricks, nutrition by country, faq's as well as special features like Nutrition Profiles and recipes.
