Hello. Please advise how to introduce apples to the toddler almost 3yrs.
Also guide on meal plan for super super hyper toddler. ( Pineapple is a big no or any sugars)
What if you can’t afford all those . This are the things that are available around me and I can easily afford.
Chapati but once in a while
Oranges and mangoes, bananas, avocado
Please help me to make a suitable diet for my kid because he is not gaining weight the way he is supposed to.
