As your little one grows and becomes more independent, you may find they use food preferences as a way of exerting their authority! Making sure they have a healthy selection of foods to choose from is something you can control.

Eating a variety of foods from all five food groups is essential. Within the five food groups, there are some key nutrients which can be lacking in toddler’s diet and are extremely important. Use the checklist below to see if you’re providing these for your little one.
We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies.
During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. A decision not to breastfeed, or to introduce partial bottle feeding, could reduce the supply of breast milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, including the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.
We recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for some parents. No matter your feeding choice, Nestlé Baby & me is here to share the latest information to help you feel supported and confident on your parenthood journey.
As every child’s development is different, be sure to consult with your health care professional for individual advice about feeding your baby.
