Do you deal with a picky toddler? As a first time mom this picky toddler stage had me confused about what to do. I was so excited at the opportunity to try out Enfagrow as a part of this sponsored post program.
When my daughter started solids at 4 months old I was pretty pleased at how well she ate. I used to make some of my own baby food by steaming and pureeing lots of vegetables and fruits. After a few months of just fruits and vegetables I started adding steamed chicken and turkey to the mix. After her first birthday I started incorporating pasta, rice and chunks of vegetables. I had it so easy that I would make batches of toddler meals and freeze them. I always had something healthy on hand for her to eat. My sister and mom would comment on how easy I had it because she enjoyed everything I cooked.
When she turned 1 1/2 I noticed her getting pickier and pickier. She no longer enjoyed my healthy homemade meals and started asking for grilled cheese or pancakes. She still ate rice and beans and pasta so it wasn't too bad. Then all she wanted to eat was grilled cheese or pancakes. I would give in and make her the grilled cheese or pancakes. I sought advice from family and friends but all they told me to do was to make her eat what I cooked. I didn't agree with force feeding her but was also worried about her not getting enough nutrients.
I started searching online and found the Enfagrow Toddler Next Step Formula. I used their infant formula, so Enfamil was a product I trusted with my daughter. I searched and read through the Enfagrow site and discovered how important DHA is for brain development in a toddler's diet. Did you know that 85% of the brain's growth happens in the first three years of a child's life? Since it is hard to get toddlers to eat foods that have DHA like fatty fish, Enfagrow helps parents by creating an easy to use milk drink that you simply mix into water.
Enfagrow makes a line of drinks for toddlers that have DHA. They were created for toddlers who are one to three years old and are made to complement a toddler’s regular diet. Also Enfagrow has important nutrients like vitamin D, calcium and iron. Enfagrow is sold in a powder or convenient ready-to-drink boxes. You can learn more about the benefits of DHA in your toddler’s diet by visiting the Enfagrow website.
