toddler nutrition chart

A mom on the Food Allergy bulletin board posted this link. It's a chart that shows the recommended daily values of protein, iron, calcium, Vitamins A and C, fiber, sodium, cholesterol, fat, and calories for toddlers, kids, and teens.

It's a great resource to check your kiddo's staples against to see if there are any glaring holes in his or her diet. One glaring hole in Evan's diet that I didn't need a chart to tell me: Foods that are Green. Besides guacamole (I know, doesn't even count) and the occasional spinach leaf hidden inside that meatball, his diet his completely devoid of green.

Lesson Learned:
Yay! for Gummy Bear Multi-Vitamins!
