Toddler Nutrition: Healthy Choices, Happy Families

By Dr. Rebecca Unger

  • What are the nutritional needs of my toddler? When do they change?

  • What are my child’s physical and emotional milestones?

  • How do encourage a variety of foods that help my toddler build good habits into adolescents?

  • How do I manage a picky eater? How do I ensure he gets enough calories if he doesn't eat?

  • Are there specific signs I should look for as my child tries new foods?

As a parent, there are endless questions you may have about your todder's nutritional needs. Dr. Unger will share her recommended pediatric tips and practical advice on topics including:

  • Typical behavior and growth milestones related to nutrition

  • Toddler Tips: stages of feeding- from cereal to table foods

We will leave plenty of time to answer your questions and concerns that you may have. By the end of this event, we expect to arm you with a practical overview to help you or your caregivers with recommendations you can implement easily and practically.
