  • Stop giving him milk as a whenever drink. Let him only have a cup of it while eating. He can have water instead. He can eat any vegetable, fruit, meat or whole grain. He really only needs 16 ounces of dairy a day MAX. So, if he had cheese, yogurt or pudding, he doesn't need milk.

  • My DD loves fruit- sliced strawberries, peaches, banana, etc. FOr vegetable she loves sliced avocado and she still sometimes eats the pureed vegetables as well (she likes showing off her spoon skills0 lol!). She'll eat most meats, I just cut them small. As in so small that if they get swallowed whole they won't choke her. She really loves rotisserie chicken from the grocery store because it's pretty juicy and flavorful. Yogurt is popular, too. For snacks she likes pretzels and animal crackers, or dry cereal like Chex, Cheerios, etc. Egg could be a good option if you don't have allergies to worry about. Oh, and for grains she really loves cooked noodles or grilled toast with some olive oil. My DD just turned two but she has been eating most of these things for the last year or so. Good luck!

  • By that age my son was eating everything that we ate with his fingers and even some things with spoons. As long as you eat a well balanced meal there is no reason that you can not offer everything you eat at the table and have family meals. If they are not eating whats offered that well you can supplement with vitamins or child friendly foods enriched with vitamins.
