Older babies and toddlers are very busy little people, and that means eating can take second place to learning and growing. To ensure that your little one is getting all the nutrition she needs, feed her a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy proteins. And, for really busy babies, try foods that pack the maximum nutritional punch, like whole milk plain yogurt. Full of essential nutrients, including lots of calcium and protein, this super food will give your baby the fuel she needs to grow, explore, and learn about her world.
