Walking Through The Jungle
Helping your baby develop a taste for low-fat dairy will serve him well when he gets close to puberty and his calcium needs soar (1,300 milligrams a day at age 9!), since calcium is absorbed best from food. Babies who are overweight and at risk for obesity, or who have a strong family history of early-onset cardiovascular disease, can have reduced-fat 2 percent milk between 12 and 24 months.
OUR PLAYGROUP I
Protein-rich foods include lean meat, fish, chicken, eggs, beans, lentils, chickpeas, tofu and nuts. These foods are important for your child’s growth and muscle development.
These foods also contain other useful vitamins and minerals like iron, zinc, vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids. Iron and omega-3 fatty acids from red meat and oily fish are particularly important for your child’s brain development and learning.
OUR PLAYGROUP II
Toddlers need a wide variety of healthy foods. You decide what your toddler eats from the five food groups. He decides whether to eat and how much. Think about what he eats each week, rather than each day.
Toddlers’ appetites vary from day to day. Suggested daily serves are 1 serve of fruit; 2½ serves of veggies; 1½ serves of dairy; 4 serves of grains; and 1 serve of lean meats, nut pastes and legumes.
Toddlers need lots of water - the cheapest, healthiest, and most thirst-quenching drink. Offer extra water on hot or humid days. Avoid soft drinks, fruit juices, flavoured milk and water, sports drinks and energy drinks.
OUR FOUNDATION YEAR
You might worry about whether your child is eating enough. Or you might be worried that your child is eating too much and above a healthy weight.
As a parent you give your child healthy food and opportunities to eat it. It’s up to your child to decide how much to eat – or whether to eat at all.
It’s normal for children’s appetites to change from day to day. Sometimes your child might want to eat a lot – just make sure that you fill him up with healthy food. Other times he might not want to eat. Try not to worry, because he’ll probably make up for it at the next meal or even the next day.
If your child doesn’t want to eat, try not to force her or offer food rewards. Forcing her to eat teaches her not to listen to her appetite.
If your child is growing and developing well, he’s probably getting enough to eat.
Offering meals and snacks at regular times encourages a better appetite at mealtimes.
Regular meals and snacks can be part of a healthy eating routine
