  • Toddler Nutrition
    The toddler (ages 1 to 3 years) phase can often be challenging when it comes to feeding. Several developmental changes occur at this time. Toddlers are striving for independence and control. Their growth rate slows down and with this comes a decrease in appetite.

  • ABC's of Feeding Preschoolers
    Children may "eat like a bird" sometimes, and "eat everything in sight" at other times. Kids usually balance their calorie intake to their needs. Use growth charts to track height/weight patterns. For children who are growing normally, don't worry about appetite ups and downs.

  • ABC's of Feeding Preschoolers
    An overview of the dietary needs of preschooleres from Virginia Cooperative.

  • Are Low-Fat Diets Safe or Beneficial For Kids?
    According to a new report, reducing children's fat intake to prevent heart disease later in life can start before age 2 without harming their brains. This contradicts current U.S. guidelines, which recommend against restricting fat intake before age 2, largely out of concern that fat deficiency could impair proper development of children's rapidly growing brains.

  • Infants & Toddlers - Nutrition
    General guidelines for designing an appropriate infant/toddler diet.

  • Nutrition - Ages 1 to 6
    Children often develop irregular eating patterns during this stage. They may become bored with their usual foods or want the same food every day. Between the ages of 1 and 6, children are usually less interested in food than in exploring their world.

  • Nutrition for the Preschool Child
    The preschooler's growth is slower than that of an infant. An average child age 2 through 5 will grow about 2 1/2 inches and gain 4 or 5 pounds each year. Because growth rate is slower, appetites may decrease. The preschool period is an excellent time to help your child become familiar with the idea that eating a proper diet is part of a healthy lifestyle.
