#rethinktoddlerportionsizes

Parents are expected to have all the answers and when it comes to feeding toddlers, it can be hard to know how much food to offer. That’s where the Infant & Toddler Forum can help.

 

A survey of 1000 UK mums and dads revealed that 79% of parents routinely offer portions bigger than the recommended size range for toddlers when offering popular meals, drinks and treats. It’s clear that guidance and practical advice for parents is lacking.

 

With evidence linking large portion sizes to excess weight gain, the Infant & Toddler Forum is launching the #rethinktoddlerportionsizes campaign to help take the guesswork out of how much is enough.
