When your toddler reaches the 17th month
What your child learns
Your child will learn to speak or write one words now, which will urge it to ask a question or comment. Tantrums and emotional outburst may also occur now – on the other hand, it is to actually express the frustrations on not being able to succeed. This is a healthy part of the personality development. Give your child the chance to let out his anger.
What your toddler needs
The energy and nutrient requirements are high, but not in the form of a diet of an adult. They need to consume an age appropriate nutrient to meet their needs.
Our AptaAdvantage Tip
You can create joy at the dining table for your young one with a little creativity. For example, you can use a biscuit cutter for sandwiches or select noodles with varied shapes like spiral or letters. You could also create imaginative names for certain vegetables to create pleasure while your child eats. The broccoli florets looks like small trees while a boiled egg can be used to decorate a toast as a hat.
