Life stages | science | Rasmussen College System

 

A person’s nutrient needs may change for a variety of reasons, but the most influential is stage-of-life. In this discussion, you will examine two stages of life chosen from the following:

  • Infancy
  • Childhood
  • Adolescence
  • Adulthood
  • Older adulthood
  • Pregnancy and Lactation

For your initial post, address the following:

  1. Identify the two life stages of life you will discuss and list their names in the title of your initial post.
  2. Research and describe the current nutrient recommendations for the life stages you selected.
  3. Suggest foods that would be beneficial for each of the life stages you selected and explain why.
