From 12 months

A healthy toddler snack routine. Little tummies need to eat regularly from 1 years old, so aim to introduce 2 healthy snacks with 3 meals a day. Try having set times for a morning + afternoon snack, where you sit down + eat it together.

Budding independence

From 12 months, little ones are oh-so-busy exploring the world! With their budding independence, they often express food preferences. This is also a time of big steps (milestones?) like trading the bottle for a sippy cup, greater self feeding skills (hello, spoon!), and enjoying foods from the family table.

All by myself!

Encourage your little one to use spoons and forks to feed themselves.

Bye Bye, Bottle

Promote bottle-fed babies to drink milk from a cup after their 1st birthday.

Not hungry?

Starting at around 12 months, your little one’s growth slows down so they might eat less than they did before. Talk to a pediatrician if you are concerned about your little one’s food intake.

Steady does it!

Try to maintain regular snack + mealtimes for your little one so they develop a healthy routine.
