Diet Plan for 20 Month 3 Week Old Toddler

20 Month 3 Week Old Baby Food Chart

Last Updated on



Introduction:





Did your child enjoy his meals last week? With half the month already up, time sure flies, right? If you notice your child eating less at some times, and eating more at others, don’t worry. Toddlers’ stomachs are small and usually can’t hold as much food, making them prefer to snack more throughout the day. This is also more beneficial, as they remain active throughout the day and do not experience massive drops in energy. As long as your little one is active and healthy, you can rest assured that he’s getting enough nutrition for proper growth and development. This week’s plan has some interesting dishes in store for your toddler. Let’s look at week three of your 20-month-old’s diet plan.
