Festive food should be healthy for toddlers

A HEALTHY Christmas-Day menu for toddlers was launched by Bulwell Labour MP Graham Allen during an event he hosted in the House Of Commons.

The get-together was designed to promote good nutrition for youngsters during the festive season.

Mr Allen is a driving force behind Early Intervention — a project that suggests positive work with children at an early age can give them a brighter future as they get older.

Mr Allen said: “Good, balanced nutrition is vital for the healthy development of infants and toddlers, and the Christmas season is no exception.

“Families are often presented with confusing messages around nutrition.

“Resources that encourage sensible, healthy eating habits are invaluable tools for the successful growth and development of children.”
