According to data released this fall at a symposium at the American Dietetic Association's Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo, baby nutrition, overall is improving while toddler nutrition still needs to be addressed by many parents. The research found that infants nutrition is getting better, with more babies being breastfed longer, plus fewer infants are consuming sweets and sweetened beverages on a given day. However, other findings from the data shows that on most given days toddlers and preschoolers aren't eating a single serving of vegetables or fruit and most preschoolers are eating too much saturated fat and sodium. Man, it seems like we just talked about this yesterday. Child nutrition is at the forefront of our brains it would appear. That's a good thing, since obviously it's helping to improve infant nutrition. However, it's a little alarming that parents start to slack off once their little ones hit the toddler stage. Babies do need healthy diets, but so does your toddler. If you need some help, see the following:
