What i really wanted was to find out how much of his recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals we are actually giving him in his favourite meals. That way if we are lacking in any, i can find some foods which are high in that particular item and add that in to his diet.
Calorie Counter is the only free website I could find that did exactly what I wanted, which is that it works out the nutritional information of a recipe that I paste into the waiting box. No laboriously adding the ingredients one by one, just paste and a click of the button and it gives you the calorie, protein, fat, carb counts and the vitamin and mineral amounts (as a percentage of the American DV). It does have its limitations in that it only includes the most common vitamins/minerals, but I'm mostly interested in those at this stage.
Obviously children's nutrient requirements are different to those of an adult, so i'll be converting them from the DV to an RDI for an adult using information on Wikipedia, then comparing this to the 1-3 year olds' RDI and back to a toddler's DV.
For 1-3 year olds in Australia:
Our first recipe in the Nutrition for Toddlers series will be Broccoli, Cheese and Salmon soup, coming up soon!
