Fill in the Toddler Nutrition Gaps with #Enfagrow

I adore my daughter, but she is a picky eater. That’s why I was thrilled at the opportunity to try out Enfagrow Toddler Formula as a part of this sponsored post program.

Three years ago I became a mom to a little girl. This girl is hands down the sweetest part of our family. She adds such a sweet element that was otherwise missing.

And it doesn’t hurt that she is cute.

But if left to her own devices this girl would eat nothing but carbs and chocolate. She loves all things bread and pasta and can be heard at least 5 times a day informing us that she ‘needs chocolate’. Of course we limit the chocolate and carbs. We push the fruits and veggies, and meat but that doesn’t mean she is eating everything we want her to. I am sure there are gaps or holes in her overall nutrition.

Even if she was eating what I consider a more rounded diet, like most toddlers, it is very likely that she isn’t getting enough from her diet. DHA is one nutrient that is important to brain development. But sadly most toddlers only get about 25% of the amount that experts recommend.

DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid and is important to brain development. 85% of brain growth happens within the first three years of a child’s life. So maintaining the expert recommended levels of DHA through this time are so important but can also be such a challenge.

Thankfully I can get the little lady to eat salmon which is rich in DHA. Unfortunately, other than her and myself no one in the house likes salmon so we only have it about once a month. This is where Enfagrow comes in.

Enfagrow makes a line of toddler drinks that have DHA. This line is tailored for toddlers one to three years and designed to complement a toddler’s regular diet. But Enfagrow doesn’t stop there. They also have other important nutrients like calcium, vitamin D and iron. They even go a step further and have a prebiotics blend designed to help support digestive health in just two servings a day.

By mixing up just two cups a day I can make sure that the little lady is getting good nutrition even when she insists on eating nothing but bread and chocolate. Enfagrow is sold in a powder or convenient ready-to-drink boxes. To learn more about the benefits of DHA in your toddler’s diet, you can visit Enfagrow.
