Training toddlers' taste buds

There is a lot of learning that takes place once babies transition from an all milk diet to one that contains a wide variety of foods.

By the time children are 12 months old they no longer depend on formula or breast milk as their main source of nutrition and should by now be consuming a variety of foods from each of the five food groups. The first three years of life are therefore crucial in determining children’s future food preferences and eating patterns.

Packing a school lunchbox

When children eat well they behave better, are able to listen well and concentrate for longer. Packing a healthy school lunchbox will help children to learn and play well and be happy at school.
