As a parent of a baby or toddler, you may have many questions about your young ones’ development. Whether your questions are about safety, nutrition, growth, development, or sleeping through the night, we’re here to help.
Babies are born knowing how much to eat – when they are hungry and when they are full. But they are totally dependent upon their parents and caregivers to provide for their nutritional needs.
By now, you have probably established a regular feeding routine. Breast milk is the best food for your baby and has all the nutrition your baby needs for the first 6 months of life.
Whether your baby drinks breast milk, formula, or both, it's important to watch your baby for signals of hunger more closely than you watch the clock. Try to:
Try not to be in a rush to introduce solid foods to your baby's diet. Your baby doesn't need any extra food or liquids other than breast milk or formula for the first 6 months of life. Many parents have questions about when to start and what to offer.
Our "Feeding Your Baby" guide offers more specific tips on starting solid food and provides suggestions for nutritious first foods. Many parents find it helpful to post the chart on the refrigerator.
Toddlers are active, curious, and fun. They are learning about new foods, practicing skills and eating habits, and developing their own preferences.

During their second year, children grow more slowly than babies and may not have as much of an appetite. Your child is becoming more independent and saying "no" to many things, including food. It's important to be aware of the following:
The only drinks your child needs are water (as much as he or she wants) and milk: a total of 2 cups (16 ounces) each day.
Finally, you are your child's most important role model. If you are interested in working on your own eating habits or losing weight, we have a variety of resources to help support your efforts. Talk with one of our Wellness Coaches to learn more and get started on your road to better health.
