One of the common concerns among parents is ensuring their little ones receive the proper nutrients for their age and growth. Weight gain in a healthy and steady way is significant for toddlers as it signifies proper growth and development. Today, I will share some nutritious recipes that incorporate nuts and dry fruits – powerhouses of nutrients known for their weight-gain potential.
Nuts and dry fruits are rich in essential nutrients such as healthy fats, proteins, fibre, vitamins, and minerals, contributing immensely to a toddler's overall growth and development. However, as these foods can also be a choking hazard, they should be introduced carefully and always in a form suitable for your toddler's age.
Now, without further ado, let's get into the nutty and fruity world of delicious toddler recipes.
