A Balanced Diet

Offer your child 3 healthy meals and 2 snacks each day, even though she may not always follow that eating routine.


Toddlers can be unpredictable eaters-gobbling everything at 1 meal and then practically nothing else for the rest of the day.

They might eat only 1 food for 3 days and then turn it down flat. Their diets tend to balance out over several days, so don't turn mealtime into a battle of wills.
