For toddlers in the 1-3 years age group, it is a vital period for growth after the end of the weaning period as they start consuming solid food. However, they still need full guidance from parents regarding what they should or shouldn’t eat. Mentioned below are five foods that toddlers should never be allowed to eat.
Nuts & seeds
Children feel hungry all the time because their rapidly growing bodies need calories. They may want to try everything that they see their parents/elders consume, without knowing what is safe for them. Nuts are unsafe for children as they pose the risk of choking them. Babies don’t have developed teeth and won’t be able to chew the nuts or seeds them. Their oesophagus is also thin and may cause fatal blockages.
Spicy & oily foods
