Feeding Your Toddler

Good food can help your child to form strong bones and teeth, muscles and a healthy body. A balanced diet can help to prevent against illnesses now and for the future and making healthy homemade dinners will help to establish good eating habits for life.

Good food is one of the biggest factors towards a healthy, happy child but it can be tricky when your toddler refuses to eat what you give them. In this recipe book, we have chosen recipes that toddlers will love but there are also plenty of ideas and tips to help those little fussy eaters, from hiding vegetables in dishes to being more creative with food!

Cook It Together!

Have fun in the kitchen and help your child to eat more healthily. Yummy food can be as much fun to make as it is to eat! Use this book to learn a new recipe and teach a family member or friend, or why not invite friends and their children round for a tea party or lunch and make some of the delicious snacks for everyone. But most importantly . . . have fun in the kitchen!
