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
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.
Im using a toddler milk to supplement cows
milk here because research shows nine out of ten toddlers
dont achieve their recommended intake to vitamins
and minerals. Toddler milk bridges nutritional gaps
in a toddlers diet and alongside a varied diet
hopefully puts to rest any concerns parents may have.
