A poll of 1,000 mothers of a child aged nine to 36 months found 29% of children under three consume a takeaway at least once a week.
A further 19% of toddlers are fed takeaways or adult ready meals for most meals. Whilst 23% have crisps and 16% consume fizzy drinks almost every day.
In spite of this, 83% of mothers believed their child had a healthy, balanced diet.
