  • With my little guy it all depends on the day what he wants and if he's teething. Hot dogs, bannanas, bananna cookies, french toast, mini pancakes, goldfish crackers, try to steal my food whatever it be. He'll eat whatever we're having as a family at dinner. HATES carrots. Ritz or saltines if he feels like it. Some gerber graduate wagon wheels, cheese puffs. Gerber Grad star puffs. I offer what ever I have and he either takes it or leaves it. Oh he eats chicken too! And pasta.

  • My son, 13and a half months, likes most foods we have. Usually pancakes or scrambled eggs for breakfast, sometimes flavored oatmeal. Graham crackers, cheerios in between. Lunch is chicken nuggets or grilled cheese or bites of whatever I'm having. He loves fish so twice a week we have fish for dinner, as I too love it. Loves carrots, peas, and broccoli. Not a big fruit eater, sometimes bananas or blueberries.

  • My guy usually eats a full 3 meals and a snack every day, but he inherited his father's high metabolism, lucky lil' guy... He eats fruit, toast, and/or yogurt for breakfast, a half sandwich or cheese and crackers with fruit strips for lunch, some graham or animal crackers and yogurt/fruit for a snack, and whatever we have for dinner (he usually skips the meat, though...). He has water or orange juice with every meal, too, plus formula 4 times a day as well. I usually let him have a little after-dinner piece of chocolate, too. He loves it. He eats a lot, compared to most, but like a said, lucky little guy has a high metabolism...

  • I think my guy has a high metabolism, too.
    Breakfast (about 9am) A fruit cup/applesauce/banana and a cereal bar/waffle/toast. Sometimes some cheerios or rice chex, too!
    Lunch (12:30 or so) A veggie, 4 chicken nuggets or vienna sausages or some type of meat (maybe left over from the night before.
    Snack 3:30 - granola-type bar, or rice chex/cheerios, or fruit
    Dinner (6:30) whatever we eat. Typically a veggie (or two) and a meat

    He also drinks rice milk or juice with each meal and at his snack time, plus rice milk in the morning when he wakes up.

    I have seen some of my friends 3 and 4 year olds eat and he eats more than they do! (Of course, some of those 3 year olds are pretty picky eaters, too.)
