Who is Nanny P?
I've had 12+ years of full-time nanny experience and have had the privilege of working with multiple families and various ages of children.
In my "Nanny Notes on Toddler" series, I tackle some of the most common issues that parents deal with when it comes to raising children of the ages 1-3 years old.
My own philosophy of childcare is that children need adults in their lives who'll give them love, discipline, guidance, a safe environment (physically and emotionally), fun and creativity, motivation, vision and self confidence.
I design each of my blueprints with these principles in mind.
I also publish children's short chapter books (for age 7+) under the pen name PJ Ryan. Learn more about the fun antics of Rebekah, Mouse and RJ at PJRyanBooks.com (many are also available as audiobooks)
I wish you much success in parenting your amazing toddler!

I'm a vegetarian, so it's hard for me to come up with foods I can serve my kids (I let them eat meat). As anyone knows, toddler eating habits aren't just about taste preferences - it has a lot to do with your attitude, the environment, etc.
I really like the way Nanny P instructs to get our kids to try new foods, not forcing them, but making it their idea instead. The ideas inside the book are fun and lighthearted so your child (and you) aren't going to be dreading meal time.
I like the strategies provided that should get your toddler on side in terms of helping to choose what they eat and when from the choices you give them.
In some cases your toddler will end up learning their colours as well as eating a healthy meal - great!
This book is a must for any new parent to read, even before their child has a problem. Reading this book may prevent a child ever developing an eating problem.
I highly recommended this book.
One point in particular that struck home was how kids can sometimes be frightened of a particular food. Of course if you're trying to force feed your child you tend to not think about issues such as these.
I liked the book's wholistic approach to the subject. It provides some basic nutritional advice along with some common sense approaches to food that will not only keep your toddler eating well but also yourself. If you have ever needed some incentive to get off the junk food working on your child's eating program will help. There is a useful discussion on sugar for example and how to manage your child's consumption of it. Might even work for me.
The main part of this book is 7 toddler eating strategies that cover pretty much every possible child eating issue and offer simple and workable solutions. A couple in particular I know from experience work incredibly well and are a lot of fun that are virtually guaranteed to get your child not only eating but really enjoying their food.
The book wraps up with a number of useful tips and a resource section for further reading and learning.
I really like these Nanny P Blueprints.Read more ›
I loved the part about taking children out and expecting good behavior. If you never take them out, they can be horrors the first time. The other advice I loved was to take them to the grocery ad let them help pick out vegetables and fruits.I am a great believer in cooking with children and her advice about the high chair and talking to them and letting them taste was right on.
I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the others in this series. What helpful books!!
I certainly learned a lot from this book including how to reduce junk food (sweets) and the importance of restocking quality food at home. I agree with Nanny P. that parents should not feel burden to feed their children, instead approach eating with the same enthusiasm that parents had when their children took their very first steps.
This process also takes a lot of patience and encouraging your child to work with you. Letting him taste and smell vegetables can also be fun. The section in this book about sweets is a good reference for parents. Let's face it, children crave sweets and sugar and the pointers on this section helps in managing your child's sugar intake.
A recommended book for parents.
