Nutrition Assessment for Infants and Toddlers
The average one year old needs about 1000 calories per day, but the number of calories varies with a child's body size, activity level, and age. It is not necessary to count calories but more important to offer nutritious foods from each of the food groups every day.
Your child will get enough calories and all the necessary nutrients from an average daily diet that includes:
grains (bread, cereal, rice, pasta) - six servings
vegetables - 2-3 servings
fruits - 2-3 servings
dairy (milk, yogurt, cheese) - 2 servings
meats (meat, poultry, fish, beans, nuts, eggs) - 2 servings.
In this guide, you will be asked a series of questions to see whether your toddler is getting the recommended number of servings from each of the food groups.
Is your toddler breastfeeding, drinking formula, or drinking milk?
