That little something extra: How to complement your child’s diet

Preschoolers, whether fussy eaters or not, generally get their macronutrients through their daily meals, but the finer micronutrients can get lost along the way when they avoid the fresh, healthy stuff we all wish they would eat. Many children go through phases of loving certain foods, then avoiding them with vehemence the very next day. Every mom has been there! This is why micronutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, tend to drop off their plates right before our eyes.
However, there’s likely no need to choose a meal replacement for your picky eater. Meal replacements, while sometimes prescribed by healthcare professionals for specific medical reasons, are generally not necessary

for the average preschooler, who is simply going through their I-hate- green-things phase. If we replace their meals, we remove their adventure of trying new foods, textures and tastes. Their beautiful struggle of self- discovery around healthy eating habits and a good relationship with food are crucial, even if it is difficult to guide them through it.

But no need to worry, mom. NESTLÉ® NIDO® 3+ has that little something extra for your child’s nutritional needs – whatever their fussy-phase level.
