Feeding your toddler is a relationship...
The feeding relationship is the complex of interactions that takes place between you (parent/caregiver) and your child as they engage in food selection, ingestion, and regulation behaviors. Successful feeding demands a caretaker who trusts and depends on information coming from the child about timing, amount, preference, pacing, and eating capability. An appropriate feeding relationship supports a child's developmental tasks and helps the child develop positive attitudes about self and the world.
Just like any relationship, it's not black and white, what works for one toddler and their family, doesn't always work for the next. And that's when Baby To Table Nutrition comes in. We are here to help you make sense and apply the latest guidelines and the best practices for feeding toddlers. Our goal is to support you in finding a way of feeding that works for you, your child, and your whole family. And a way that sets your child up for a great relationship with food for life.
