In order to grow physically, toddlers must have food, fresh air, light and exercise. This food, fresh air, light and exercise provide toddlers with nourishment and activity required to satisfy the needs of physical growth and development. Along with this physical development, toddler must also develop emotionally. As toddlers reach the age of seven, they will also reach certain levels of emotional maturity. It is hoped that the emotional Maturity attained will be at a desirable level so that they are able to function normally within their own sphere of relationships, whether it is with their peers, their immediate family or other adults.
The nutrients or ingredients necessary for emotional growth are not the same as they are for physical growth.

These nutrients satisfy the needs for emotional security just as food and drink satisfy a physical hunger pain. If toddler are to attain a level of emotional maturity, they must first have certain securities.
