  • cheese (cubes or string, cut in small pieces), grilled cheese, scrambled eggs, pasta twirls (plain or macaroni and cheese), diced fruit (pears, peaches, blueberries, etc.), etc. - by 8 months my son was eating what we ate with few exceptions. Even on taco night - I would give him a cheese rollup with diced tomatoes in it.

  • My son likes cucumber sticks (without the skin) as they are soft and cool for sore teeth. Broccoli, asparagus, canteloupe and pear are also favourites at our house. Our son mostly eats what we do too, even noodles from chicken noodle soup and pasta noodles.
    Be careful with egg whites, tomatoes, strawberries, kiwi and citrus fruits until 12 months as they are considered allergens. Sandwich or deli meats are also filled with lots of nitrates which aren't so good for babies. We started cooking a whole chicken or two on the weekend so we can have meat during the week and make soup. Makes for some easy dinners when you are a busy mom. Our son loves bits of cooked chicken, steak, roast beef and ham.
    I'm not sure I'd consider a happy meal real food - it is such crap with so much fat.

  • You are doing a great job of setting her up for a life of obesity. Ask your family doctor for a referral to a nutritionist or dietician. You and your child should be eating whole grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables. Learn to cook. Send me a message if you have any questions on how to get started on a healthy lifestyle.

  • I'd be careful with the suggestion of scrambled eggs, my son had a horrible reaction to eggs when he was that age, his whole body puffed up like a balloon.
