Ah toddlerhood. It’s the stuff of dreams are made of… if you’re prepared! Your lovely little squishy, smelling-of-powder baby turns into a mini adult seemingly overnight. IF you’re prepared, it can be a glorious time of exploration, learning, and independence!
Luckily, I think I’m prepared. I’m on my second child and we made it through the first coming of toddlerhood age and we passed with flying colors so I expect more of the same. That doesn’t mean I won’t have to think on my toes. Oh yes, thinking on your toes and going with the flow are the key to success, in my opinion, when welcoming your little one into toddlerhood.
If you know they aren’t going to eat all those green vegetables, make it fun. One of the times when my kids push their independence the most is at mealtimes. During the first year of their life they listened to everything I suggested. Peas? Sure Mom. Kale and Turkey? I love it! But now things can start looking a little different at dinner so you have to change up what’s not working and bring in new ideas.
Although eating on the go wasn’t something I thought I would encourage, my kids tend to eat better when they’re somewhat distracted. If it means I can get in a good and healthy snack, I’m all for it!
Another great way to supplement your toddler’s sometime picky eating habits is the new Stage 3 Gerber® Good Start® Grow Toddler Drink. It’s turned out to be a great way to ensure that my toddler is getting all the nutrition they need and deserve. With a fully nourished toddler tummy, he can focus on what being happy, having fun, and exerting that independence in more ways than at the table!
The Gerber Good Start Grow Toddler Drink is specially designed for toddlers 12-24 months and contains probiotics to support their digestive health. It contains many essential nutrients that fill common nutrient gaps that toddlers experience during this important growing time, and is made with non-GMO ingredients.
If there’s one thing that we all know about toddlers, other than the fact that they are the most independent people on the planet, it’s that they are on the go… constantly! Seriously, where do they get their energy? I wish I had just a fraction of it most days. That’s another reason that Gerber Good Start Grow is in our lives because it’s so convenient on the go.
If you’re welcoming a little one into Toddlerhood like me, you’re going to love the convenience and added nutrients of the Stage 3 Gerber® Good Start® Grow Toddler Drink. And Gerber wants to give YOU and your toddler a special present for arriving at such a fun time in life!
