Nutrition Assessment for Infants and Toddlers

Your child needs several servings of fruits each day. Try offering a variety of fruits. Keep a bowl of fruit handy for snacks; offer fruits instead of other high-sugar or high-fat snack foods.

Favorite fruit suggestions for young children include: apples, bananas, nectarines, peaches, pears, oranges, grapefruits, and strawberries. Older children may also enjoy cantaloupe and other melons, mango, kiwi, plums, and dried fruits such as apricots, dates, prunes, and raisins. Remember that whole grapes and cherries should not be given to toddlers because they are a choking hazard.
