Video Recipe: Broccoli, Cheese and Chicken Risotto for Toddlers

We all know what it’s like when it comes to tea time with toddlers – it can be hard enough getting them to sit still at the table let alone anything else! Between the ages of one and three years it can be difficult to get them to eat the right foods particularly as some toddlers can become fussy eaters.

Help is here with UK Celebrity Chef and mother Lesley Waters, along with SMA nutritionist Anne Sidnell who have designed 6 easy meals to satisfy your tot’s taste buds, and give them a good dose of the nutrients like Iron, Omega 3 & 6 and Vitamin D they need for healthy growth and development. The meals have been designed in conjunction with SMA Toddler Milk*.

In the third webisode in the series, Lesley cooks up a delicious Broccoli and Cheese risotto with the minimum of fuss, using just one pot!

Lesley’s tip: It’s vital to get vegetables into your toddler’s diet, and I found a great way to do this by adding broccoli into a cheesy risotto. Concealing the ‘good stuff’ in a tasty dinner is a great way of getting those nutrients in. Also, chicken is a great source of protein and toddlers like it because the flavour isn’t too strong.

* A 200 ml serving of new SMA Toddler Milk will provide up to 50% of a toddler’s daily requirement for key vitamins and minerals, including Iron, Omega 3 & 6, and Vitamin D.
