Nutrition Assessment for Infants and Toddlers

Your child needs many servings of carbohydrates each day in order to have enough energy for their brain and body. Try a variety of foods from this group. Your toddler is sure to like some of them.

Be sure to choose products made from whole grain, which contain more nutrients and fiber rather than refined (more processed) products. For example, choose 100 percent whole wheat bread instead of wheat bread or white bread. Also choose products that are low in sugar and salt. For example, serve graham crackers instead of doughnuts, and serve unsweetened oat circles instead of sugar-coated cereals.
