  • soft foods, cooked foods, breads, cereal, baby foods, all kinds of things really. a better question might be what can 1 yr old's NOT eat.

  • They can eat any healthy food.

    According to the AAP they should only have 4 oz of juice a day in an open cup, not a sippy or a bottle. They don't need to drink cow or any other mammal milk (they recommended max milk products is 2 toddler servings - since toddlers like so many things with milk it is hard to limit milk intake to only 2 servings). There are lists of foods that may be choking hazards. They sould never have soda or artificial sweetener.

  • My kids, at a year old, were eating the same thing everyone else was eating - the only exceptions were tough steak (they'd easily eat a super-tender tenderloin from a t-bone), super-spicy foods, and maybe tacos - we'd use a torn-up softshell mixed with the filling instead of making a regular hard-shell taco. Other than that they ate everything under the sun.

  • they can pretty much eat anything that you eat but you really should be careful of shellfish. As long as the food is soft and doesn't need much chewing then go for it. My LO however does like super spicy foods and some kids don't. Good luck this is a fun age for foods.

  • Pretty much anything you are eating. Be careful with things like nuts, popcorn, etc. and always cut round foods (grapes, hot dogs [if you feed them to him], etc) at least in half if not quarters.

  • No honey, no nuts, not chocolate.

  • Whatever the rest of the family is eating. All eating restrictions are lifted at the 12 month mark. THis includes, honey, eggs, chocolate, and cow milk. Be careful of choking hazards and you're all clear :)
