If you’re wondering what a toddler should eat in a day, or what a healthy toddler MIGHT eat, then you’ll enjoy this series that I’m starting. It’s called “Today, my healthy toddler ate…” and is a list from a REAL day.
- Every child is different and this is NOT meant to be a nutrition plan or meal plan for YOUR child – just a sample of what MY healthy, active little boy eats. In an attempt to choose good search terms, the title of this page is coming up as “What a toddler SHOULD eat” – which I hate!! Realistically, there are too many factors – both nutritional and “real-life-ational” – to come up with a definitive SHOULD. Again, this post is simply meant as an example that might help you broaden your horizons as a parent or child care provider.
