#4 Get snack-savvy

Mother & Baby (UK) - - PICKY EATING SPECIAL -

‘Tod­dlers gen­er­ally need three meals a day and two snacks,’ says Jo. ‘If they’re snack­ing more than that, or fill­ing up on too much milk through­out the day, they won’t be hun­gry for their meals.’ As a gen­eral rule of thumb, if your young­ster is aged be­tween one and three, it’s ok to leave two hours be­tween eat­ing, but never more than three hours. That means he’ll be hun­gry enough to eat, but not rav­en­ous! It’s not a hard-and-fast rule, how­ever – if he needs feed­ing, then give him some­thing to eat! – but it will help you gauge how many snacks to aim for.
