Health & Physical Development - Young Toddler (8 to 21 Months)
Just like when they were infants, sound nutritional choices are an essential part of this stage in your toddler's health and physical development. But unlike the early months, you'll see they're starting to develop their own tastes and preferences. It's important to start healthy routines now - from mealtime to bedtime and everything in between. Young toddlers grow and develop best with a healthy and balanced diet, sufficient rest and appropriate physical activity.
