Toddlerhood represents striking changes in children’s development. It is a period of a time of rapid cognitive, social-emotional, and physical development. Changing nutritional needs accompany these developmental milestones. This publication of The Nest brings together topics of great interest on the field of toddlers’ nutrition such as toddlers’ development and their nutritional needs and gaps, role of milk fortification and importance of adequate vitamin D intake and status at this stage of life.
