Toddlers need a lot of nutrients to sustain their growth. Most notably iron, zinc, calcium, and an added need for protein for their developing bones. They also need healthy fat sources to sustain their bodily demand for fat, especially for their brain development. Toddlers should be well-nourished as at this age they begin to interact with more kids in nurseries and become more susceptible to infections.
This recipe contains: 1) Fresh organic milk or age-appropriate milk powder for calcium needed for growth, 2) Arla porridge which is fortified with vitamins and minerals needed for growth, and 3) Bananas and raspberries which are fruits rich in fibers, antioxidants, and vitamins and minerals needed for optimal immunity.
