Toddlers' Eating


The first thing you come to learn about your toddler is that YOU NEVER WIN A BATTLE WITH A TODDLER.

Toddlers' main developmental goal is their strive for independence, so food battles become the best arena to demonstrate their power and control.

While this phase is something parents usually survive, other factors can mean that the food intake and fussiness gets extreme and food range becomes limited.

This is when Parenting Matters can assist.
