More than half of your little one's energy intake will go directly to their brain - more than twice the amount of energy an adult brain needs

So it is important that they are getting all the key nutrients they need to support this rapid growth and development during this phase - this will stand to them when they are older. Make sure to include 3 main meals and 2-3 healthy snacks.

Development

As they are approaching their first birthday, your baby may become a little more stubborn and start to assert their independence a little more. One of the side effects of this is that they may start to resist taking naps during the day as they are so interested in what is going on around them. But it is important to try to persist with their routine - at this age they should still be having 2 naps totalling up to about 2 and a half hours per day. This also gives you some well-needed time to recharge yourself or to catch up on some housework!

By the time your baby is one they only need about 300ml or 10oz of milk per day. So if your little one is still taking several milk feeds throughout the day, now is the time to start reducing them down gradually. Offering cooled boiled water as their other main drink is the best option. There is no need to include juice in their diet but if you do want to offer juice make sure it is pure fruit juice and dilute it one part juice to 8-10 parts water.
