What goes into your toddler’s tank can make a huge difference to their mood, as well as impacting on sleep patterns and overall wellbeing. Your toddler is a bundle of enthusiasm that charges through the day and with the right foods you can keep that energy at an optimum, avoiding the crashing highs and lows of too much sugar.
Start as you mean to go on with a nutritious breakfast and steer clear of sugary cereals. Wholegrains like those found in porridge or granola release sugars slowly and help keep things on an even keel till lunch. A glass of orange juice with breakfast will aid the absorption of iron too.
