Know their nutrition needs
Just like when you were weaning, try to include a wide variety of foods in your toddler’s diet. Except in the case of intolerances or specific dietary lifestyle choices, the main food groups to incorporate every day are: fruit, vegetables, dairy (e.g. milk cheese and yoghurt), protein (e.g. meat, fish, eggs and pulses) and starchy foods (e.g. potatoes, bread and rice). It’s also important to ensure they stay hydrated. Water from a cup or free-flowing beaker is your best bet if you want to protect their teeth. And remember, it’s recommended that all children aged 6 months to 5-years-old are given vitamin supplements daily. Look out for one containing vitamins A, C and D.
