If you're dealing with a fussy toddler who refuses to eat anything but chicken nuggets and sweets, ensuring they are getting their five-a-day can prove difficult.

These clever tips from Madeleine Shaw will help you introduce super healthy, nutrition-packed foods into your little one's diet. 

Variety is the key to mixing up your little one's nutritional profile 

"The key to a healthy toddler is variety, so if your little one likes toast then mix up the toast you give them! Perhaps one week have a loaf of rye and one a spelt sourdough, this will mix up the nutritional profile."

Introduce protein-packed duck eggs into your toddler's diet   

"I like to also do this with eggs on some days. I'll feed my son a scrambled Clarence Court Braddock White duck egg which is even more protein-packed then a hens egg."

Help your little one get their five-a-day with mixed root veg mash 

"We want little ones to be eating as many veggies as possible. I love to make mixed root veg mash, with steamed carrot, parsnips and potato which will blend together with some olive oil. This is a great way of getting a range of veggies in."

Up your toddler's antioxidants and vitamins with smoothies  

"Smoothies are also fantastic, packed full of fibre which is great for their digestion. You can also add a banana and a handful of berries in there which will up their antioxidants and vitamins."

Choose low sugar snacks made from natural ingredients 

"Of course homemade is best for everything. My top tip for when you are choosing snacks out and about is to try and go for the ones with the lowest amount of sugar and with natural ingredients."

These tips are from Madeleine Shaw, ambassador of Clarence Court eggs.
