That means that the foundations for their future are already being set. You can make sure that they are getting everything they need by making sure they are getting a healthy balanced diet and by nurturing their learning each day through talking to them, reading to them and playing with them.

Finding healthy snacks or treats for your baby can be a challenge. It is important to limit sweeter options such as biscuits, chocolate etc. so that they are a very occasional treat for your little one. Instead of these some healthier snack options are berries, seedless halved grapes, rice cakes, veg sticks with a dip, cheese slices of cubes, homemade banana muffins or brown bread lightly buttered.
