6. Sweet Potatoes
Loaded with vitamins A and C as well as assorted phytonutrients, sweet potatoes have a toddler-friendly taste and texture. A simple mash can be dressed up with a pat of butter and some cinnamon or simply substitute regular potatoes fries for sweet potato ones and turn a treat into a truly nutritious meal.

7. Oats
This breakfast staple is quite kid friendly in that it tastes like whatever toppings you mix in. Set out a bowl of this phytochemical-rich food and your toddler will also be getting a good dose of selenium, magnesium, vitamin E, zinc, and protein. Your child will love to “help you” cook breakfast by adding in her own raisins, bananas or chocolate chips.

8. Quinoa
A good substitute for rice cereal, quinoa’s complete protein makes it one of the best healthy foods for toddlers who may not like meat. In addition, quinoa’s nutty nuggets contain a lot of fiber, iron, manganese, magnesium and lysine, which aids in tissue growth and repair.
