Do you ever wonder exactly what you should be feeding your toddler? Beyond giving them their 5-a-day of fruit and veg, do you know how many portions of protein or dairy they should be having? Well i’ve got a rather nifty info graphic to share with you from Organix that spells it out for you…
This month I’ve been promoting the Organix #LoveGoodFood campaign for toddlers, spreading the message to parents to help their little ones love good food in these early years, so they grow up to be healthy, little food explorers.
It’s refreshing to have such clear advice to follow at a time when you might be concerned that you’re not getting their diet right.
If you want to find out more then check out the Little Book of Good Food – Toddlers & Families, packed with advice and tips for parents on providing a healthy diet for little ones as they continue their exciting journey with food through the early years and beyond. You can download your FREE copy here: www.organix.com/lovegoodfood
Once you’ve downloaded it, i’d recommend printing out that rocket graphic and sticking it to your fridge to guide you for planning your little one’s meals. It’ll help you keep track of what you’ve given them that day, and if there are any gaps you’ve not quite filled.
But what counts as a portion? How much should I be giving?
The book also has information about exactly what counts as a portion for a toddler – for example 1-2 tbsp of hummus counts as a portion of protein, and 2-3 tbsp of grated cheese is one portion of dairy. This info has all been devised by Dr Frankie Phillips, Nutrition Advisor to Organix and a registered dietitian specialising in feeding babies and toddlers, so you can definitely trust her!
I hope you’ve got some inspiration from my series of posts about #LoveGoodFood… you can find out more on the Organix Website.
Disclosure: I have been commissioned by Organix to promote their #LoveGoodFood campaign and have shared a series of blog posts with you as it’s something I feel strongly about.
