Providing nutritious meals for mentally challenged children
Nutrition services are important in any health and welfare pro-gram which contributes to the prevention or amelioration, treatment, and rehabilitation of the mentally retarded. For normal growth and development, it is essential first to consider the usual nutritional needs of the child at his particular age, then to consider the modifications required because of the specific illness or handicapping condition which may alter normal food needs and feeding practices.
