Feeding a Toddler and #WeanTeam Graduation

Over the last year, we have worked closely with HiPP Organic as part of the #WeanTeam, this has followed Isla's journey across weaning from her first tastes, to introducing lumps to a strong willed toddler who has her own mind when it comes to mealtimes.

We are now beginning to think of feeding within the future, the additional things she will need alongside a healthy diet. As our little ones are growing quickly now, there is so much to consider, the development mentally and physically but whilst considering they still have a small stomach.

Did you know, the average toddler needs roughly around 95kcal per kg of their body weight? I didn't previously but you can find out more about toddler portion sizes on the HiPP Organic website. 
I always find portion sizes a difficult one to judge, especially as sometimes they want to eat more than what I offer, or don't even finish what I do offer. But, its important to remember food refusal is really common and something in which most families experience along the weaning journey.

Alongside the healthy diet and correct portion sizes, their are a range of vitamin supplements in which your child needs, which you can also find about on the HiPP website, these need to include vitamins A, C and D.

So what comes next on our weaning journey with Isla? Well we will continue to work on introducing more foods, there are many in which we haven't tried. I'll continue to offer choices for breakfast and a lunch choice. We will also make a start on introducing more table manners, such as using cutlery. However, I feel she has had a wonderful start to her journey alongside the help of HiPP which will stand her well within the future.

Of course, our year with the #WeanTeam is up, which saw Isla graduate and have a lovely graduation party with the team. We had a lovely time at the event, and it was lovely to see how all the babies had grown over the last year. I remember them all being really small from the first time we all met and this time they were all toddling around, causing mischief wherever possible, or maybe that was just Isla.
