Q: Hi, i was just wondering how many calories should my 15 month old be intaking everyday? shes 27lbs and 32 inches tall
A: The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends toddlers consume 1,000 calories per day divided among 3 meals and 2 snacks. Be sure to include a variety of fruits and vegetables in your child’s diet. Cut large or raw pieces of vegetables into smaller pieces that will be easier and safer to chew and swallow.
