Foods to make your little human

Updated: Jan 5, 2023



✨Things you should know first:✨


  • Children are still growing and have small stomachs therefore, they should be eating around 6 small meals daily;

  • Give them plenty of time to eat and let them decide how much they want to eat-this is so they can develop hunger and satiety cues;

  • Offer lots of healthy fruits, vegetables, lean meat, bread, fish, cereals, pasta, rice, dairy and the occasional "treat" food 1-2 times a week (more on this in future posts);

  • Offer water during eating and milk/water with snacks;

  • Be equipped with healthy foods when you go out such as fruit, sandwiches, oat/ nut bars, etc.
