Step 2 – Toddlers (from 12 months)

#SnackFact

 Toddlers need more food for energy than their tiny tummies can manage at meal times.

Ideally, toddlers will need to refuel every 3 hours to ensure that they are getting enough energy to keep them growing and going. Snacks planned into their daily routine will help to keep them topped up and happy between meals.

 Snacks for energy refuelling and happy tummies!

#SnackFact

 Sticking to a routine including snacks can help to keep mini meltdowns at bay.

Hungry toddlers can be irritable, grumpy, tired or whiny, not nice for the grown-ups and certainly not nice for them. But it’s important for toddlers to learn when to expect food. Allowing children to graze on snacks between meals can override their natural hunger and fullness cues.

#SnackFact

 Toddlers need almost twice as many calories, per kg of body weight, as an adult

From 12 months toddlers need around 1000 – 1400 calories a day to give them enough energy to try all their new-found skills like climbing. Food and snacks made with ‘good’ energy will keep them topped up for longer
