Loss of Appetite

Have you noticed that your toddler eats a lot less these days? Since turning 1, he’s pickier about food or no longer interested in eating after a few bites.

Don’t be too concerned. Your child’s growth rate has slowed and he doesn’t need as much food—only about 1,000 calories a day—even if he does seem like a ball of energy.

Many toddlers go through a grazing stage, where they get their nutrients from small, healthy snacks throughout the day. Sitting for an entire meal with the family may not be in your child’s wheelhouse yet. So offer small healthy meals or snacks when your toddler is hungry.
