How should my 2-year-old baby eat?

ANSWER

  • Give your child a variety of nutritious foods like vegetables, fruits, and dairy products.
  • Let your child feed herself and choose what they eats.
  • If your child doesn't like a particular food, keep offering it. They may change their mind later.
  • At this stage, your child should be eating about 3 meals and 2 healthy snacks a day.
  • Don't worry if your child doesn't eat much at times. Most of the time, it should balance out.
