On an average day in Australia 5,000 children seriously injure themselves in the home, at school and at play with around 500 dying each year as a result of their injury. So what would you do in the case of an emergency? What would you do if your child started choking or stopped breathing? The question is, could you save your child’s life?   Survival It’s Life is an accredited first aid training organisation that specialises in the “First Aid for Kids” awaress session educating and making parents, grandparents and other child carers aware of skills and techniques in First Aid, specifically for children. 

At Survival, our approach is that we come to you and conduct the session in the comfort of your own home.  All you need to do is organise a group, minimum of 8, and we do the rest. We believe you cannot put a price on your child’s safety and at only $60 per person, it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind. So organise a session today by calling Susie Ivison, the Principal and Senior Educator on email or mobile 0414651838.

Eating & Toddlers

After the age of 12 to 18 months, there is a definite change in children’s eating patterns as their growth slows down and they require less food. It is common for parents to be concerned that their toddlers are not eating enough or seem to be becoming fussy with the type of food they will eat.

Toddler eating behaviour:
  • eat less 
  • like to each frequently
  • may become fussy with their food
  • like to handle and explore their food
  • may develop strong likes and dislikes...and frequently change their minds about what they like and what they don't like!
  • frequently mimic the eating behavours of their parents
Meal times

Parents need to provide a safe, comfortable environment, and food that is nutritious and appropriate to the age and stage of your toddler.

Remember toddlers enjoy:
  • eating with the family and they will often try to eat from other people’s plates
  • eating without interference from others as they will use a spoon as well as their fingers - but be prepared for a bit of a mess and meal times to be time consuming
  • eating small meals or snacks at regular intervals
  • helping with simple food preparation – toddlers will often snack on the food as they help you
  • having things ready straight away – they don’t like to wait for anything so BEFORE sitting your toddlers in their high chair have their food ready to eat
  • having food preferences that seem boring to us as adults e.g. will only eat carrots for a week or beans
  • helping to serve their own meal 
  • drinking milk and juice – this can decrease their appetite – so limit these types of drinks or add water to dilute the concentration
Things to remember:
  • Aim to make mealtimes enjoyable for the whole family … not a battleground
  • If your family normally eats their evening meal late, your toddler may be tired and will need to eat earlier
  • Provide a variety of foods 
  • Encourage safe eating habits – always get your child to sit down to eat
  • Praise your child for eating a range of foods rather than the quantity of food they eat
  • Try to model a health approach to nutrition by trying to avoid offering foods low in nutrition such as chips, biscuits or lollies
  • Be realistic about what you expect your toddler to eat
  • Keep food simple for example finger foods such as pieces of fruit
  • Reduce distractions during mealtime – turn off the television
Toddlers like attention:
  • if behaviour is positive - praise
  • if behaviour is disruptive ue distractions, or remove them from the table and re-offer once again a short time later
  • always wash your hands and your toddler’s hands prior to handling food
Reassure yourself with the following thoughts, young children:
  • eat when hungry
  • never starve to death from refusing food
If Still Concerned

Keeping a record of what your toddler eats for a week can be helpful. You might find:
  • They eat more food than you thought they did
  • There is a pattern of too much milk or juice that is decreasing their appetite
  • Too many snack foods are being allowed between meals
If you remain concerned ask for help from your child and family health Nurse or local doctor - from  www.tresillian.net
