Yeah, I would stop with the pizza and fries and taco bell. All of the saturated fats and preservatives could really mess with his health in the long run. I would suggest simple whole foods found in your produce section (which will be easier and CHEAPER to prepare). Here is an example of what I feed my 12 month old each day:
Breakfast : Whole Milk Yogurt w/fruit and whole grain cereal
snack: avacado or string cheese
Lunch: veggie burger patty and some cut up banana
snack: whole grain crackers or gold fish
Dinner: lentils, rice, and hummus
I am still nursing, but I give her organic whole cow's milk and water throughout the day in a sippy. She has never been sick. Not once.

At 14 months my daughter ate chicken strips, fish filets, cut up ham, chicken and turkey, all kinds of frozen, fresh, and canned veggies and fruits along with mac and cheese, rice, spagetti, lasagna, mash potatoes, eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, sausage, shrimp, and soooooo much more, the possibilities are endless!
I'm sorry, but that is NOT a healthy, balanced diet for a baby so young. (Bacon, while delicious, is HORRIBLE for an adult let alone a baby). I think the poster was asking about HEALTHIER options. Healthy foods for a small toddler are simple, fresh, and whole foods such a fresh fruit and veggies. I am not a vegetarian, but overwhelming research suggests babies do not need to eat meat but are best kept getting protein from sources such as flax sees, nut butters, dairy, and eggs.
I also would suggest the book Super Baby Food for good recipes and ideas.

I do not see a problem with giving them "fast food" once a week
At 14 months?! No.....just...no....
