Avoid Fats

Certain fats and cholesterol are important to your toddler’s growth and development, so don’t restrict them (even if they’re not so great for you to indulge in).

Babies and toddlers need to get about half of their daily calories from fat to help with brain and nervous system development. Fats also help the body absorb certain vitamins (A, D, E and K).

Plan to gradually decrease fat consumption once your child reaches age 2, dropping down to about 1/3 of their daily calories by ages 4 or 5.
