I found that if we happen to get around people who have voighs and stuff and Tiny starts to feel ill, some Vit C in water helps really well and quickly
Tiny gets excited because he gets to mix the Vit C in the water
He squeals "Vitsy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I love it :)

Providing all the laughs

Seeing food

Food is a long story these days.
I have to plan really hard and  not get some things I want to get, or get other things  that may be better
I have to make sure we don't go over a certain amount each week.
So I repeat a lot the same foods but try different recipes when I can
At least books have food :)

Eating healthy foods is the most important way to prevent and treat iron deficiency. Good sources of iron include:
  • Apricots
  • Chicken, turkey, fish, and other meats
  • Dried beans, lentils, and soybeans
  • Eggs
  • Liver
  • Molasses
  • Oatmeal
  • Peanut butter
  • Prune juice
  • Raisins and prunes
  • Spinach, kale and other greens

Mild anemia may have no symptoms. As the iron level and blood counts becomes lower, your child may:
With more severe anemia, your child may have:

Non-Dairy Sources of Calcium

Your toddler needs 500 milligrams of calcium per day. Nondairy foods that are rich in calcium.

  • Salmon
  • Green leafy vegetables like collard greens, turnip greens, kale and spinach
  • Beans
  • Broccoli
  • Almond Milk or Butter
  • Papaya

Non-Dairy Sources of Vitamin D

 Some foods that are high in Vitamin D include:
  • Salmon, tuna, cod, mackerel, catfish and other fatty fish
  • Shrimp
  • Eggs
  • Almond milks that are fortified with Vitamin D
Also, make sure your toddler is getting about 5-30 minutes of sun exposure per week (all year if you live in the South or during summer months if you live up North) so his body can make its own Vitamin D.

Non-Diary Sources of Fats

 Fats are necessary for cell growth, energy and processing fat-soluble vitamins. Here are some other foods that can supply healthy fats for your toddler when used in moderation:
  • Peanut butter or other nut butters
  • Avocados
  • Olive oil
  • Canola oil
  • Olives (make sure they're not given whole to prevent choking)
  • Ground flaxseeds
Some foods are definitely better choices than others. Almond butter, for example, is rich in good fat and calcium. Salmon is rich in Vitamin D, calcium and has healthier fats.
