Tips for Toddlers to Encourage Healthy Eating

We’ve had some challenging times with LA and his eating habits. He is getting to the point now where he not only will be picky about what he eats, but when he gets food in front of him he wants to be Mr. Independent and when he has that he is full, he wants to play with what is left.

Toddlers enjoy playing with their food; it is a part of learning about it. Here are some helpful tips for encouraging your toddler to eat healthy from Earth’s Best:

  • Offer a wide variety of wholesome foods in a supportive, non-pressured setting and according to a regular, predictable schedule.
  • Present new foods at least twice a week.
  • Offer new foods along with old favorites.
  • Serve small, toddler-sized portions to not overwhelm your child.
  • Foods should be easy to chew and be bite-sized.
  • Provide snacks that are fun and interactive for your child, like Earth’s Best Organic™ Pop Snax.
What are your tips for encouraging healthy eating? What snacks does your little one love?

    my best tip for encouraging healthy eating is to set a good example! if my son sees me eating something, he automatically takes an interest…even if i can’t get him to try it, he at least gets interested which means the next time i eat it, he’s a little more likely to give it a try.

  2. my best tip is to offer a wide range of healthy foods and continue to offer them- even ones your child may not seem to like at first. leading by example is also very important!

    My daughter loves the Earth’s best Pop snacks. Sliced grapes and string cheese also seem to be her favorites now so I try to mix and match these with other snacks to offer her some variety

  4. I need this…my first two are great eatters…third one decided to be different…trying to get him to eat his veggies…he is doing a little better as of late, but still have a ways to go…

  5. My little guy loves mum mums right now. He is only 8 months and that is the only snack he has! But I do love Earth’s Best Baby Food!

  6. I agree that leading by example is the best way to go!
