TODDLER MEALS AND RECIPES (1-2 YEAR OLDS)
During your toddler's second year, he or she will start to show signs of becoming independent. This will more than likely be demonstrated when it comes to food. We have all heard that familiar 'no', and the look of enjoyment and satisfaction that comes with it!. If you start to find yourself battling with your toddler at mealtimes, just try and keep cool.
The reality is, a child's appetite can vary from day to day and week to week, but be assured that this will all calm down in the future. Try and let your toddler decide how much they want to eat and never force them.
