The quality of the food a person eats is more important than the quantity. The food must contain all the essential nutrients in adequate proportion for the growth and smooth functioning of the body. Adequate nutrition prevents a lot of illnesses. Same type of diet may not give all the nutritional elements, so it is important to preserve diversity in the food menu. Children and the elderly should give special care regarding their food habits. Their bodies are more susceptible to nutritional deficiencies. Children in their growing phase need more building blocks, minerals and vitamins for their body. Deteriorating changes in the body of old people demands for more nutrition. The requirement varies from individual to individual. Still, including plenty of fruits, vegetables and leaves in the menu will be helpful in this regard.
