Nutrition Assessment for Infants and Toddlers

Fruits and vegetables are good sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber. You can introduce fruits and vegetables at any time, in either order. Introducing vegetables before fruits does not guarantee that your child will like them years from now.

Good starter vegetables are sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, peas, and green beans.

Good starter fruits are apples, bananas, prunes, pears, apricots, and peaches.

Start with a few spoonfuls. Eventually, your baby will take more.

Meats are a good source of protein and iron.

Is your baby eating meat?
