Healthy Toddler Food: Kid-friendly Food

 Your toddler will eat mostly modified soft table foods – small bits of cooked chicken, pasta without spices, well-cooked, unsalted vegetable pieces, and so on. Keep baby cereal on her menu to ensure that she gets enough B vitamins and iron. Introduce her to foods with different textures now – that way she'll grow up willing to try new things.

Three squares a day

The amount a toddler eats varies from meal to meal and day to day. If your child is growing and gaining weight, don't worry that she's not eating enough. Children this age are quite good at making sure they get what they need. She actually needs less food than you might think: roughly 900 to 1000 calories each day. That's not a lot when you consider that your child consumes 300 to 500 of those calories in whole milk (about 16 to 24 ounces) alone. Your toddler will get plenty if you offer her three meals a day, along with three sit-down snacks. Try half an English muffin with melted and cooled cheese or an unsalted cracker with a little bit of banana.

Very helpful because my little one does not eat much at any meal. I've worried he is not getting enough.

Breakfast trouble

1/21/2016
I have a hard time trying to figure out what to give my son for breakfast every day. I feel like he its the same 3 things every day!!! No one else in the house really eats breakfast either but they are gone by the time he gets up. We have a very tight budget so its hard to get a lot of new things I'm not sure he will eat.
