Your toddler 2 - 3 years

Independence days

Your toddler's really becoming their own independent little person. They'll soon discover the joy of jumping, so watch out for those big puddles! And they may be able to dress and undress themselves - though not necessarily when you want them to! Learning through play is really important at this stage, so if you need inspiration our Playtime Planner has lots of fun ideas to help support their development. And despite how grown-up they seem, your toddler's nutritional needs are still different from yours. For feeding advice, take a look at our tips for meal planning and managing fussy eaters. If you've got any questions about this amazing stage, just get in touch.
