COOKING FOR TODDLERS FOOD & COOKING ARTICLE

Blueberry and Banana Popover Pancakes
by Chef Lesley Waters

Celebrity Chef Lesley Waters cooks great food for fussy kids

We all know what it is like when it comes to tea time with kids – it can be hard enough getting them to sit still at the table let alone anything else! Between the ages of one and three years it can be difficult to get them to eat the right foods, and to know if they are getting enough nutrients, particularly as some toddlers can become fussy eaters during this time.

Help is here with Celebrity Chef and mother Lesley Waters along with SMA Nutritionist Anne Sidnell who have designed six easy meals to satisfy even the fussiest of taste buds, and helps provide balanced meals with key nutrients like Iron, Omega 3 and 6 and Vitamin D that are needed for healthy growth and development.

In the penultimate webisode in the series, Lesley creates this inventive dessert designed to encourage toddlers to eat more fruit.

Lesley’s tip:

I’m using a toddler milk to supplement cows’ milk here because research shows nine out of ten toddlers don’t achieve their recommended intake to vitamins and minerals. Toddler milk bridges nutritional gaps in a toddler’s diet and alongside a varied diet hopefully puts to rest any concerns parents may have.
