Mother & Baby - - BABY & TODDLER -

Here’s an­other tod­dler favourite that’s packed with amino acid tryp­to­phan that’ll help him sleep. For the big­gest sleep-boost, serve it with healthy whole­wheat carbs. “This helps your young­ster’s body con­vert the tryp­to­phan into the sleep-sup­port­ing hor­mone sero­tonin,” says Lucy. “Car­bo­hy­drates also in­crease in­sulin pro­duc­tion, and that low­ers the lev­els of other amino acids in his body. With­out the com­pe­ti­tion from those other amino acids, more tryp­to­phan can get into your tod­dler’s brain.” Jacket potato with cheese, cheese grated on top of whole­wheat pasta, or cheese on toast are all great com­bi­na­tions.
