Toddler food: Creating a healthy start for toddlers
It is often difficult to know exactly how much your toddler needs at different ages and growth stages. However, getting the right balance of energy and nutrients is an important part of toddler food choices to ensure they have a healthy start in life.

This Bupa Parenting Insights talk will go through realistic expectations parents can have with toddler food, including feeding guide changes, correct child’s serve size, normal food behaviour, safe food handling and Kate's quick ‘7’ checklist.
