Encouraging Independence and meeting milestones with SMA® PRO Toddler Milk

*Advertorial Feature

Toddlers can be such adventurous creatures, however they can be extremely fussy too, especially when it comes to what they eat and drink. Toddlers also like to be independent and want to do things in their own way. Blake, at the age of two, is all of these things and so much more.

From the age of one Blake started to become very fussy with his food. Throwing food around, refusing to eat, spitting out the food you have made is a part of what we are having to deal with on a near enough daily basis. Between the ages of one and three children need very specific dietary requirements and so it's important to get all the right nutrients by giving them a varied diet to aid development, health and growth.

Sometimes I look back and wonder about how quickly Blake has grown and all the milestones he has been hitting since he was born. I do love the age he is at but I do still look back and do miss him falling asleep on me. The beginning of the year saw us take the side off Blake's cot and that was a big milestone for all of us. The next step for us is to encourage him to drink milk from a cup instead of a bottle.
