I wrote a similar post a few months ago about how my daughter is a picky eater. I know it’s normal for this stage in her life, but it can be frustrating, to say the least. She will go from liking her usual favorites of chicken nuggets, mac & cheese, French fries, clam chowder, sausage, hash browns and waffles to not wanting to eat any of them at all. Don’t even get me started on vegetables; I must sneak those into blended smoothies since she knows what vegetables are and what they look like by texture and colors. That doesn’t mean she’s tried any of them, she just assumes that all vegetables are gross.

 

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like some of them either (ahem peas), but I do try to incorporate healthy veggies into every dinner meal so that the whole family is getting what they need nutritionally.

There are days where she only wants to eat fruit for dinners like strawberries, a banana, and grapes, so I decided I needed to look into other options to make sure she’s getting balanced nutrition she needs for the day to complement what SHE IS eating and Enfagrow® Toddler Next Step™ is a great choice! It has DHA to help toddlers get this important omega-3 fatty acid that may be missing in the foods they love the most!

DHA HELPS PROVIDE A NUMBER OF IMPORTANT HEALTH BENEFITS TO CHILDREN, INCLUDING:

⦁ Helping to Support brain and eye development

When we’re at the park, we not only like to play, but we also like to identify colors, sounds, shapes and counting pine cones so that that way she’s still learning and remembering but also having fun at the same time.

 

Did you know that 85 percent of brain growth happens in the first three years of life? DHA is an important building block for this time because it helps support brain growth, but most toddlers don’t get the amount experts recommend.

On average, a toddler’s diet only provides about 25 percent of the expert recommended levels of DHA, so Enfagrow Toddler helps fill that nutrition gap with a product that also provides prebiotics and other nutrients to help support the immune system and healthy growth.

Enfagrow Toddler is a brand I trust since it is from the maker of Enfamil®, the #1 Brand of Infant Formula recommended by Pediatricians.

It’s available now in a convenient 32 oz. liquid bottle and 32 oz. powder tub. The bottle is great for us since I just add the already premade Enfagrow Toddler into her cup and take it with us on the go.

Rest assured, I know she’s getting what she needs with Enfagrow Toddler and will continue with it until her eating habits start becoming better overall.

As a parent, I feel so much better knowing my daughter is getting important nutrients to help support her brain development.

    I don’t have small children anymore but I will surely recommend this to friends and family who still have toddler-age children. I am happy there are milk drink formulas available nowadays that provide adequate nutrition for active toddlers!

    I’m glad I read this post. My youngest grandchild doesn’t breast feed any longer nor does he like many foods. He never really has. They even tried whole foods as a baby just to see if he would like that better but nope. I think Enfagrow Toddler might be a solution

    It’s very important to make sure the diet is well-rounded. I remember the days of my youngest wanting strawberries only for a meal lol. He’s 10 now, so it’s improved but we still have our days. 😉
