In the hot seat this month and straight from Mother&Baby's Editor's shopping basket, Stephanie Anthony shares what she's got her eye on for the (sometimes) tricky task of feeding toddlers, whether you're dealing with a fussy eater, looking for healthy snack options or encouraging them to try new flavours.
Taking a look at what ASDA have on offer, Stephanie has a variety of products to help at snack time as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner...
If you like to keep some snacks handy to tackle any hanger tantrums, then these puff pops are a great one to pop in your bag. They're organic, have no added sugar or salt and are free from additives and colours - so you can be assured they're getting a healthy treat.
These fun and colourful hollow tubes are perfect for little hands to grab hold of, encouraging self feeding and improving motor skills. So, you can keep tiny tummies topped up between meals as well as supporting your little ones' development. They're also gluten free!
If your tot's got more of a sweet tooth, then try these fruity cereal bars by Organix. They're just right for little hands so make a perfect on-the-go snack.
If you're popping to a friend's house for lunch or looking for a quick and easy meal, these ready-meals are simple to prepare (either on the hob or in the microwave) plus you can serve straight from the bowl, so no washing up! It's a brilliant way to encourage your little one to explore new flavours and textures, plus it contributes to 2 of your toddler's 5 a day.
These adorable pasta shapes are perfect for cooking up meals at home. Little ones will love all the familiar farm animals to make it an interactive and engaging meal experience. Simply combine with their favourite sauce and you're good to go.
As your toddler progesses through weaning onto complete meals, it's a great chance to try out new flavours and taste experiences. The Little Angels' meals are brilliant value for money, and have so many flavours to choose from - so you can try out a different meal every day!
If you're a fan of sustainable options, particularly when it comes to baby and toddler purchases, then this rice husk cutlery set is ideal. Completely biodegradable, when your tot moves on to big kid cutlery, you can simply pop them on the compost pile.
This section plate is perfect for little portions, and I love the frog design. It's microwave and dishwasher safe, and it's made with a by-product so super eco-friendly.
When your tot is ready to graduate from a cup with handles, this tumbler is the perfect way to encourage weaning development, as the open cup promotes good oral motor skills. Don't worry if it does get dropped, as well as being sustainable and good for the planet, these tumblers are life proof too.
