  • cut me off,lol

    any kind of vegetable either canned or cooked down till soft, she loves all fruits. I buy fresh and cut it up and I also buy the cups of fruit,her favorite is the tropical fruit and pears
    She like saltine crackers
    Yesturday I gave her a half of turkey sandwhich with cheese...cut into strips...before she was able to handle the strips, I used to cut it up into very tiny pieces
    she eats cheese sticks...motzarella is pretty soft and she really likes that

    pretzals,cut up turkey,when we have tacos she like to eat the ground beef with shredded cheese on top

    I recently started giving her salad with little bit of dressing..but everythign is cut up VERY tiny. (I'm a worry wart when it comes to choking,lol)

    avocados cut up, cottage cheese either plain or sometimes I'll mix it with diced pineapples
    HAve fun and experiement! You never know what they will like! :)

  • My son could hold and eat and chew well. If yours can't your can always mash the foods up or puree. LOL My son was holding and eating a kid burger by 9.5 months...So, I didn't have to make anything soft.

  • Any foods that are easily mushable or chewed are okay for your child to eat. My son is 19 months and this is the varity of foods that he eats. If you're just starting out with solid foods, then start with things that are easily mashed and swallowed without much effort. My son had a horrible time learning on solid foods, because he wouldn't chew. So it takes some patients.

    Things my son eats:

    Rice and Veggies
    Lunch Meat. He likes Roast Beef and Turkey.
    Cheese. He prefers Colby Monteray Jack.
    Tortilla with Peanut Butter or Peanut Butter Toast
    Baked Beans.
    Chicken Noodle Soup hold the broth. That is my life savor. Cook soup, drain, let cool, and serve. I use the Hardy kind, not the condensed, though he likes that too.

  • He doesn't like green veggies. He won't even try them, which I think is kind of funny. He loves Corn. He does like green beans in Cream of Mushroom soup though.

    Tuna Casarole
    Alfredo with Chicken
    He doesn't like meats until they're mixed in something or it's lunch meat. He won't even touch hamburger.

    He eats about a cup of food each meal. I have tried feeding him more, as most kids seem to eat more, but he just doesn't finish it. Therefore, I stick to the 1 cup of food a meal. It does vary on some days though. I feed him three meals a day and rarely do I give him snacks. Not because of other reason then he rarely wants any. When he does he gets cheerios or goldfish crackers. He gets roughly about 5 oz's of milk with each meal and then milk with nap and bedtime. I only give him occassional juice and he'll only drink Grape juice. When I do give him juice it's 4-5 oz's not diluted.

  • My kids were eating pretty much what the rest of the family was eating when they were a year old. There was very little they didn't eat. Snacks were usually low-sugar cereal, crackers, soft fruits/veggies, etc.

  • Today my son had: a handful of cheerios and a 4 oz yogurt for breakfast, peanut butter crackers for snack, for lunch he had a slice of cheese melted on whole wheat toast and some blueberries, for snack he had a banana, for supper he had hibachi steak and veggies w/ rice (we went out to a Japanese restaurant) and when we got home he had some cooked apples for dessert (I steam them and add a little bit of cinnamon and a pinch of brown sugar) He gets 2 cups of milk/day and then water after that. Juice for a treat maybe once/week..
