Transitioning from Baby to Toddler
Feeding your toddler what the rest of the family is eating is often a tougher hurdle for parents to get over than it actually
is for baby. But remember, your child is ready and technically has been eating more tender, plainer versions of adult food
for a while now. It’s important not to label food as “adult food” or “kid food” because it creates connotations for your toddler
of what he should or shouldn’t eat. Your little one will try almost all foods right now, so this is a perfect age to offer
dishes and foods the rest of the family is eating. Plus, it simplifies mealtime tremendously for the cook! Here, we give you
tasty family-friendly recipes and modifications for little one.
