10 Steps for Healthy Toddlers

New research from The University of Edinburgh has found that in a study of 2000 families with five year olds, those children who eat the same meals as their parents are far more likely to have healthier diets than those who eat different foods. In light of the new findings, the paper recommends that government advice to families should be kept simple to help establish good eating habits in their children’s early years.

The Infant & Toddler Forum, an independent team of early years’ experts, has been working in this area for many years and in 2010 developed the Ten Steps for Healthy Toddlers initiative which promotes simple and concise advice that can be applied. It focuses on what foods to offer and what behaviours to instil, to promote good habits for health, growth and development.

Judy More, paediatric dietician and member of the Infant & Toddler Forum said: “Our own research shows that parents are often anxious about providing nutritious meals and snacks, with over one-third stating that having clear practical advice on what and how much to feed toddlers would make mealtimes easier. To address this need, we set out to review the existing evidence on toddler nutrition and produce a set of simple messages that are aligned with current government advice and promote family meals. Ten Steps for Healthy Toddlers consists of ten easy-to-follow practical steps to support families and carers with toddler mealtimes, looking at behaviours as well as nutrition.”

Feeding Toddlers

We have reproduced an outline of10 steps for healthy toddlers, with thanks to the Raising Children Network that may help instil healthy habits with your toddler.

  1.  Eat together as a family
  2. Provide a wide range of healthy choices
  3. Offer foods from all the 5 food groups everyday
  4. Find out what food routines work best for your family
  5. Water is always a great drink choice
  6. Try getting your toddler involved with food preparation
  7. Make mealtimes a happy, social occasion
  8. Serve new foods along with foods your child already likes
  9. Make a distinction between ‘everyday’ and ‘sometimes’ foods.
  10. Encourage physical activity

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians

  • The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding is best for your baby.
  • Having a balanced diet when breastfeeding is also important. Infant Formulas should only be used after you’ve sought advice from a doctor or health practitioner.
  • A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse and introducing partial bottle feeding may reduce the supply of breast milk. It is also wise to consider the cost of infant formula.
  • If you use infant formula, all preparation and feeding instructions must be followed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important for your baby’s health.
