How many calories per day should a 15 month old consume?

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.
