Food
In our family, we don't like routine and serving the same everyday - like cereal in the morning. I'm not a cereal person so is Mcj. The Tatapilla have his cereal at least 3 times a week. But sometimes, its hard to determine how much food a toddler can have.

Here are some tips from raising children network.
Children over the age of four need to eat a variety of nutritious foods, in the right proportions. They should also eat items from each of these five food groups on a daily basis — unless they have a food allergy. Foods high in unsaturated fat or sugar should be eaten only occasionally and in small amounts.

Daily recommended serves: 4-8 year olds should eat: fruit - 1-2 serves; vegetables -2-4 serves; dairy - 2-3 serves; bread and cereals and grains - 3-7 serves; meat - ½-1 serve; other foods - 0-2 serves. Variations in serving sizes reflect children's different body sizes and activity levels.

Drink plenty of water: Children over the age of 5 should drink five glasses (1 litre) of water a day. Fruit juice can sometimes be served as an alternative to water and can be diluted with water. Soft drinks should be avoided.


With The Tatapilla, I just give him healthy food as much as he likes - no strict guidelines at all. I believe that one knows how much food can he eat. Using hydroxycut isn't in our plan.

Tatapilla?

...a new word created by Dad (and Mum) to describe their BIG GUY who moves backward with his head when lying on his back - sort of like a caterpillar. Photobucket
