My son just turned one acouple of days ago and when i took him to the pediatrics to get a checkup they told me he was underweight. Now that i am taking formula away and giving him milk what are some things i can give him. They told me yogurt, chicken, and eggs but thats about all they told me? And i do still give him baby food right? for how long?
you will learn along the way of what you can and cannot feed your baby. at about 12 months I started making him breakfast (scrambled eggs, grits, oatmeal....) and then at about 14 months he started to eat dinner with us and what ever we were having. At 16 months he was off the baby food for good. My son loves and will eat just about anything except tomato sauce of any kind. be it catsup or Ragu. The best thing I ever found for him is individual servings of veggies like carrots (his favorite), green beans and corn. They come in little plastic cups and you just have to microwave them for 30 seconds. I get ours at Wal-Mart. Apples are tricky if they don't have many teeth, I would stay away from those. Applesauce is good thogh. good luck!

At a year they can usually eat just about anything that you would eat, only cut-up. Many little ones are off babyfood by a year, but if your child still likes it you can continue with it if you want. Jarred babyfoods have more water added so they may not be as high in calories. Go ahead and give him table foods too if you haven't yet. If he's underweight you want to give him foods that are nutrient rich, but high in good fats and calories such as:
- Avocados - Oatmeal - Whole milk yogurt and full fat cheeses - bananas, sweet potatoes, olives - eggs - pasta w/ a little butter - Ask the Dr. but nut butters (like peanut butter) and fish are also good if there is no family history of allergies.
Limit whole milk to under 24oz. per day, and you can offer 4-6oz. of juice per day as well if you'd like. You can also continue formula if you'd like and/or if your child doesn't eat a variety of healthy foods
