Small Children eating

I gave a link yesterday on toddler eating guidelines…now what about the older toddlers, preschool-middle school aged kids….what the heck should they eat??

Here is the recommended amounts for that pesky 4-8 year old range!  Its not much different, just a bit more!

The one thing we see is that serving sizes are the same, but the amounts of servings change from age group to age group.  We want to keep in mind though, that your child may not want to sit and eat a full 75g serving of meat or meat alternatives in 1 sitting.  That is fine, as long as at the end of the week, they average that 75g serving daily!
