Snacking is one of the important sources of nutrition for toddlers’ diets, as well as a way to fill the nutritional gap between meals. Toddlers tend to imitate elders and are influenced by the social environment. This imitation extends even when it comes to snacking. Toddler-hood is a stage wherein healthy eating habits can be integrated. A healthy snack for a toddler should be nutritionally balanced and should be able to support the main meals, to meet the increasing nutrient requirements of the growing toddler, without affecting proper meals.
