Grains

How much, how often?

Provide around 4 smaller serves per day of grain foods, spread over the day.

Food acceptance tip

Try combining a few foods on your toddler’s plate, including some things your child already eats but also adding a small amount of something new.

Nutrition advice

Grain foods give your child energy to grow, develop and learn. Choose mostly wholegrain varieties.
