The anti tantrum menu
If you had bag of Chuckles for breakfast, you’d probably be crashing by 9am, so don’t overlook the impact your child’s diet can have on his behaviour. If he’s flinging himself on the floor in fury, give his meals a makeover
Meals that help regulate those erratic toddler moods
If you have a toddler, a few tantrums are guaranteed – including the inevitable supermarket meltdown. The irony is that the food in the aisles of the grocery store he’s having that meltdown in – vegetables, red meat, porridge oats – can actually improve your child’s behaviour. “As adults, we know it’s important to eat regularly to maintain concentration and mood, but this is just as important for children,” says Amanda Ursell, author of Baby And Toddler Food Bible. If you’re clued up on which foods have a positive effect on your child, it will be easier to keep him relaxed and focused. So, as well as ensuring your tot is fed regularly, add these to the menu for a happier little one.
