What are some healthy feeding tips for my 15-month-old child?

ANSWER

Your baby has now entered the toddler years. It’s important to encourage them to try different foods. Some tips:

  • Keep offering new foods. If your child doesn't like a food one week, they may love it the next. It takes many times for a child to like some foods, so don't give up!
  • Small children like to imitate their parents. If your child sees you eating a variety of foods, they may do the same.
  • Stick to mostly unprocessed foods such as fruits and vegetables. These provide great nutrition for your child’s growing brain and body.
  • Whole grains are also a good source of nutrition.
  • Keep cutting your child's food into small pieces, staying mindful of potential choking hazards.
