Healthy Snacks for Toddlers

At this stage your toddler should be having 3 meals and 2-3 healthy snacks per day. Healthy snacks are an important part of your toddler’s diet and can build on their nutrient intake for the day. Improving eating habits now will improve their habits as children and adults. Make sure to have a supply of healthy, low sugar and low salt snacks around the house so as not to resort to processed convenience snacks.
