My daughter has always been a good eater, sometimes even out-eating my husband at mealtimes, but we all know what inevitably happens between meals – snacking, of course.
When it comes to toddler nutrition, you should make every meal and snack count. It’s so easy to fall into the habit of grabbing endless handfuls of processed or pre-packaged snacks because, come on, we are all busy parents, am I right?
But busyness or processed food convenience shouldn’t be the reason to stuff your toddler with empty calories or bad sugars and fats. In fact, preparing healthy, protein-packed snacks takes very little effort and promotes those growing taste buds to appreciate delicious, healthy food. Plus, by making sure your toddler snacks have a protein element, they will fill up faster, getting them out of the habit of mindless snacking of carb or sugar-based snacks.
