Chinese Recipes for Toddler
Neither a chef nor nutritionist, I am simply a stay-at-home “multi-tasker” dedicated to look after two very important persons in my life: The “Emperor”(hubby) and The “Prince”(son).
I started to learn cooking when we moved to Singapore in middle of 2007. (In December 2012, we have moved back to Kuala Lumpur). It was out of necessity as my mother-in-law chose to stay put in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. As I started out with zero knowledge in cooking, it was really a great challenge.
Throughout this learning process, as expected, I had encountered numerous failures. Luckily, it was not to the extent of “burning” dinner. I had blessed to have the full support from both my hubby and son. They gave me lots of encouragement in improving my cooking skill.
The recipe in this food blog covers mainly on simple, healthy and practical recipes that are suitable for toddlers. (In this case, the recommended age is two and half years old and above). You will also find lots of creative ideas and useful tips on how to introduce nutritious food into your child’s diet.
[WARNING: Some of the ingredients and seasonings used in my recipe may not be suitable for kids below two and half years old (due to allergy and health issues). So please use them with extra care and make the necessary adjustments if needed. The most prudent option is to consult your doctor.]
Personally, I strongly believe that all kids are not born to be picky eaters. With proper planning, you can introduce more nutritious food into your child’s diet. By just being creative and knowing what attracts children’s attention, there is actually a low probability of them turning into picky eaters as they grow.
I will not deny the fact that you may face a lot of failures at the beginning, but if you can be persistent and consistent enough in your approach, things are definitely moving onto the right track. As we know, parents can play a vital role in educating their kids the right eating manner and the importance of appreciation to food. To achieve this goal, the parents must first get their own diet on the proper track because a kid’s dietary habit is also a reflection of that of his/her parents. Your influence is much greater that you think.
