Tips for Getting Your Toddler To Eat Healthy

It might be easy for me to write this because my daughter is a great eater. She almost always eats well at a meal and will eat almost anything I give her. We have definitely had some times of struggling though where I had to learn some tips for getting her to eat well. As a dietitian, what my daughter eats is very important to me. I do let her have some treats and unhealthy foods but it is in moderation. 

When it tastes good, you have to close your eyes and really enjoy it!
I focus on an overall nutritious diet with whole-grains, fruits, vegetables, protein and whole-milk dairy. We don't give her much juice and to be honest, she doesn't drink milk because she refuses to. She is growing healthy and strong so I know that she is doing a good job of eating well.

I am all about easy dinners when life gets busy. When my Busia (grandma) was sick, cooking was the last thing on my mind and when we would come home from the hospital, we just grabbed whatever we could find to eat or went out to eat. I am getting back on track by cooking healthy but still want to stick to easier meals.

I love sweet and sour chicken and so did my Busia. That is often what she ordered at her favorite Chinese restaurant. Now that she is gone, it is going to be hard to go back to that restaurant that we went to with her so many times. I am not a fan of the breaded version of sweet and sour chicken though.

When I think of Christmas morning, I think of time with family, opening presents, the excitement of my little girl and of course, the food. We always celebrate Christmas morning at my parent's house. Now that we have a child of our own, we do our own little present opening around our tree first before heading the 1/2 mile over to my parent's home.
