You will agree with me that toddlers need healthy and yummy food to boost their immune system and enhance their growth on a daily basis. Most Nigerian parents go for everyday cereal products and brands for there little ones. As parents, getting your children to healthy food is very necessary, a lot of toddlers are very picky about what they eat.
Therefore, it's best to give your child regular food that will help them grow and develop well because adequate nutrition is one of the keys to living a healthy life.
I listed some Nigerian meal to give to toddlers that would be very nutritious
Ogi and pap is fondly called wet cornstarch. It is prepared hot with milk and sugar. Akamu is excellent for babies and toddlers; it is easily swallowed and easy to prepare. The akamu is easily digested and is very rich in potassium and sodium. It also gives the child energy.
It's popularly known as the African salad or ugba. Its a very tasty Nigeria meal that's known to the igbo's and can be added to the toddlers. The abacha is made using dried shredded cassava. Its eaten as light snack or full meal. Enjoyed with vegetables or anara leaves are rich in beta-carotene, ascorbic acid and calcium. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which make it perfect for your growing child.
The bread is a good energy giving food. Its very rich in carbohydrates and is one of the most frequently consumed foods. Bread is also rich in fibre that helps with digestion. Another health benefit of bread for babies is that it contains carbohydrates, and these provide your babies with energy, that they will need to play on a regular basis. The bread contains a high amount of calcium and iron which helps in the production of the red blood cells.
The beans are good for growth in children because its highly rich in proteins. It's very delicious and very healthy to the child. It's rich in protein, fibre, folate, magnesium, iron and potassium.
