What all does she usually like eating ?

Children this age are now starting to assert their independence and choices. Also they do not like to sit still. Getting them to sit in one place for ten minutes is an achievement. Plan small meals but think that you have to have six to eight mini meals. Power pack her foods for eg make a paneer and aloo paratha or a palak and aloo paratha instead of just aloo paratha, make curd interesting by mixing some fruit, freezing it and then serving as an ice cream with powdered almonds sprinkled on top, dry items like dosa and idli are very popular with this age group, colorful foods are interesting to them. They also would like to try their hand at a little bit of cooking so maybe getting them to carry their own plates or butter their bread can actually make meal times fun for a toddler.
