Healthy Kids, Food, and Family, Especially During the Holidays

No matter the species, fit and growing youngsters are hungry a lot of the time. According to the Centers for Disease Control and National Center for Health Statistics, the average healthy male infant is expected to double his weight by three months of age. If he follows typical growth charts, then by 15 months, he will have doubled his weight again. In addition to that, his weight is expected to double between the ages of 3 and 9 years and continue to increase by about 5 lbs per year until age 20. [1,2]
