FREE Printable Food Chart for 2 Year Old


food chart for 2 year old

As usual I was sitting with my laptop to write my blog post for the day at 4.30 am. Amma passed by my room and saw me awake with the laptop. She asked me whether I was writing post to which I nodded yes. ‘Where do you get topics to write from?  How do you write everyday?’ was her next question. I told ‘Amma, my readers ask me a lot of questions and I answer to all of them. If I have to give a descriptive reply I turn them into posts ‘. Amma was convinced with my answer, I hope you too. This food chart was asked by many parents and here I am with a printable food chart for 2 year old.

Month wise food charts are the most searched section in our blog. Did you download the free printable weekly food chart planner? The combo of both helps you to be assured of the proper food intake and nutritional requirements of your little one. You can customize this food chart as per your kid’s tastes and likes.

As a toddler reaches 2, his body becomes slender. He loses the baby fat; his arms and legs lengthen. His physical activities also increase along with requirement for additional calories for growth and development. I have taken care of all these nutritional needs in my food chart for 2 year old. Also I have added the much liked pasta, muesli, cornflakes and other options in this food chart for 2 year old.

A 2 year old can have a small bowl of whatever you have with less spice. Feed until he or she is full and refrain from force feeding.

  7. Hi, my daughter is 21 months but still on purees… She hs a sensitive thtoat thus i cant gv her any coarse food or just our table food… Can u help guise how should i proceed to introduce them ?
    She takes a few small bites of dosas but later gags and then throws up.

    • Neetha,

      Give her apple, pear and cheese cubes to play everyday evening. She will start nibbling on it and gradually get used to it. Start solid porridges like cornflakes in milk, oats in milk etc so that she will start taking coarse foods. Stop blending foods.
