Join the Toddler-Sized Challenge

Calling all parents and carers to be part of what we want to be the biggest ideas sharing challenge for making feeding toddlers easier!

The Infant & Toddler Forum have created a helpful guide on what foods and in what amounts we should be feeding toddlers. But we really need your help to make this guidance into something easy and practical that takes the guess-work out of mealtimes.


We have joined together with Netmums, Tesco Baby Club, Tommee Tippee, Pre-school Learning Alliance, PACEY and London Early Years Foundation to ask parents and carers of toddlers, to take this expert advice and put forward suggestions on what else is needed.


We need your help to solve the Toddler-Sized Challenge with a practical solution. It can be anything at all from repurposing something already in the kitchen, an app, or something brand new that will need to be created from scratch. As a parent, you constantly come up with creative ideas, from fancy dresses to Easter bonnets, so we believe that you can really help us finding a practical solution that every family will use.


This is a lot to think about, so just remember the following:

1) Which types of foods in the right balance – carbs, protein, dairy and fruit/vegetables
2) How often different types food should be offered every day?
3) How much should be on the plate – think toddler portions
