One day, your toddler eats absolutely nothing. The next, ketchup only. The day after that, he eats like a 250-pound gorilla. But all kids do that.
Still, it would be nice to have a nutritionist who could tell you if your child is eating healthfully overall. But who can afford that?
Little People's Plates is a new, UK-based site where you can get all kinds of advice and tips about your toddlers' diet from experts in child health and nutrition -- for free.
One of the coolest features of the site is Tot It Up, a food calculator that gives you a personalized analysis of your toddler's diet, so you can see if they're getting a good balance of foods. The neat part is that it will calculate your toddler's average intake so it accounts for all those weird picky-eater days.
