Tips to Help Your Toddler Settle and Enjoy Mealtime #EnfagrowMomsKnow

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Enfagrow A+®. All opinions are 100% mine.

In our house mealtime can sometimes be tough especially at night when the kids come home from school, and the little ones are tired and ready to call it quits. It’s a long day for everyone, but for toddlers who don’t quite understand the concept of such long days and evenings, it can be tough.

My kids can be picky; dinner time is no exception. It can sometimes be like pulling teeth to get them to sit down, eat their dinner and settle at mealtime. As a mom,  it’s not easy, and parents do try very hard to get healthy balanced meals – and if you struggle at mealtime as we do, you are probably not alone.

Enfagrow A+ Toddler Drink has become a staple in our home. Justin and Hanna both have enjoyed Enfagrow A+, so we try to keep it on hand as often as possible. You can also always Sign up for FREE Samples and make sure you always have some on hand too!

Enfagrow A+ is an everyday toddler drink for 12-36 months olds:

  • 26 nutrients to help support healthy growth, including iron, calcium, and vitamins C and D
  • DHA, a type of Omega-3 fat and an important building block of the brain
  • Two dietary fibres, galactooligosaccharides (GOS) and polydextrose
  • Is an excellent source of calcium
  • More iron and vitamins C and E than cow’s milk
  • Gluten-free and kosher
  • Available in Milk Flavour and Vanilla

5 Tips to Help Your Toddler Settle and Enjoy Mealtime

  1. Serve up delicious Enfagrow A+: My two littlest love this drink in place of milk or water at dinner. The vanilla flavour is especially favourite in our house, and we can guarantee the cup will be empty after dinner.
  2. Serve smaller portions: While my 8-year-old may want a heaping serving of dinner toddlers tend to eat a little bit less. Start with a really small portion, and let them ask for seconds once done! This makes my 4-year-old feel like such a big kid because he finished his food first, and was able to get seconds before everyone else!
  3. Let them help!: Nothing lets the little feel like a big kid like helping mom and dad. Handing out forks, giving out drinks or serving up plates makes a little one’s day. I find they are much more eager to sit down and enjoy a meal they helped with!
  4. Add a special dessert: Find your toddlers favourite dessert and let them know its available for a treat after dinner once their plate is cleared. This is always a sure fire way to get them to finish their meal, and the bigger kids too!
  5. Stop and Eat with your child!: You’d be surprised how much this makes their day! It takes no effort, sit down and eat your meal together while chatting about anything and everything they’re willing to share! They’ll finish their meal quicker and get some quality time in the meantime!

    My daughter-in-law is expecting her first child soon. I’ll have to tell her about this for when her baby turns a year old and is old enough to enjoy it. It’s good to know that Enfagrow A+ is full of vitamins and minerals. I also love that you can sign up for free samples.

    My sister-in-law is struggling with her toddler eating. He used to eat like such a champ and now he does not want to eat anything. I am going to show her this post and see if it helps her.

    All your tips are wonderful. There is one picky eater in the family but he is getting better the older he gets. Your tips are wonderful and will give them a try.

    One of our secrets to enjoying mealtime is to eat together as a family. Meal time is when we can chat about our day and it’s just quality family time.

    Feeding toddlers can be difficult especially because of their mood swings. Enfagrow can really help bring in the needed nutrients for kids.

    We always try and do family meals with the kids. At least once a day, and you are right, they love it and sit longer.

    With toddlers, meal time can be an adventure at times. These are great tips for helping children settle down for meals. My kids used to be a little fidgety when it came to meals & snacks, too.

    I remember when my Son was little I was always worried he was not getting enough nutrition. I will have to share this with my friends with little ones.

    Awesome advice! My kids are grown and it was a struggle during meal times. I will share this post with my cousin. Her 3 year old must learn how to sit still during meals.

    I wish there would have been more products like this out 30 years ago. Always looking for great ideas to pass along to family with young ones.

    They didn’t have anything like this when my boys were small. I didn’t have many mealtime problems, my kids ate just about whatever I made.

    These are great tips! I know it can be really hard to get the little ones to enjoy their food, and actually want to eat. This brand sounds so great, I have to see if my sister in law knows about it!

  • Reply Esther Martin November 9, 2017 at 6:25 am

    Great tips! I especially love tip #2. Isn’t it great to know there are products out there helping us make sure our kids get all the nutrients they need?!
