Many children with special health care needs have nutrition challenges due to factors such as limited mobility, feeding problems and altered metabolisms. These factors can affect weight, growth and nutrient needs. Ensuring that these children receive adequate nutrition and eat well-balanced and nutritious foods takes a collaborative effort between parents, nutritionists, doctors, and child care providers.
