Toddlers usually need to have 3 full meals and 2 to 3 snacks each day. You should include grains, vegetable and fruits, diary and protein foods in your todder's daily menu plan. For snacks you could try include 2 different food types like fruits and grains, diary products and veggies. Try not to offer any snack less than an hour before meal.
