"Protein is essential for buildinghealthy bodies. It is needed for growth and maintenance of muscles,bones, and body organs. The building blocks of protein are called amino acids, and while some are made in our body, others come only from the food we consume. On average, 10- 30% of your child’s diet should come from healthy protein sources. Most children consume more than enough protein on a daily basis but for many, they are not getting it from the healthiest sources." Read more
