Weekly Meal Plans #Week1 Toddlers

BabyChakra is happy to announce weekly meal plans for toddlers! All of us know that toddlers have a mind of their own! So here’s a plan that will hopefully, appeal, to those picky taste buds.  

 

The meal plans have been put together by Healthy Eating Habit Expert Deepti Arora and she has made sure that there is a good combination of health, taste and lots of yumminess in there.

 

So go on and try them. Don’t forget to tell us how the little one liked it!

 

Deepti has a few things for you to consider.

 

Toddlers can be really choosy sometimes and fussy in their choices and pick only food that they are comfortable with. A few easy and simple daily practices, will help you grapple with your meal time worries:

 

  • Serve food in modest sized plates
  • Keep mealtimes a pleasant experience
  • Be consistent with meal timings, for stability and regularity
  • Make vegetables and fruit your family’s default snack
  • Involve your child in preparing and serving food
  • Try different cooking methods - raw, roasting, baking, that can bring out veggie flavors

 

Happy Trying!!
