Nutrition during toddlerhood

Toddlers, ages 1-3, are in a phase where they experience a substantial slow down in growth and development. In addition to decreased appetite, they want to be independence and have more control over the choice of foods, meal times, and quantities. This could result in making planning and feeding a nutritional diet challenging than ever.

No pressure - as long as you stick to the routine, maintain offering a diverse healthy meals each day, and follow your little one's feeding cues, your little one will stay active and healthy.

Balanced diet + Exercise = Healthy life

Nutrition for children is based on the same core principles as nutrition for adults. The key to proper nutrition is a healthy and appropriate balance of diet and exercise, as well as, a conducive lifestyle. Berrybites makes it easy with our organic toodler food delivery service.
