  • Mine son is 16 months. He has a pretty decent size appetite. The doctor says he has a high metabolism because he is only in the 10th percentile for his weight. ANYWAYS....

    Breakfast (about 8 am)- 1 egg, 1/2 piece of wheat toast with a little real butter (not margine AKA chemical spread) and fruit preserves, and some strawberries.

    Morning Snack( about 10am)- 1 cheese stick and some apple slices

    Lunch (about 12:30pm) - Grilled Chicken Chunks, steamed green beans, manderine oranges and 1/2 whole grain role

    Afternoon Snack (About 3pm)- Veggie sticks (carrots, cellary, squash, etc.) with light ranch dip

    Dinner (6pm)- Salmon and Veggie patties (salmon, shredded zukinni, whole wheat bread crumbs, lemon juice and parsley cooked in a little bit of olive oil), salad (shredded very small so he doesn't choke) with vingrette dressing,

    Desert (maybe 2 times a week)- strawberries with chocolate yogurt dip

  • please dont give your 16 month old hot dogs & sausage!! thats horrible. anyway, this is what my 17 month old usually eats:
    breakfast: a bowl of cheerios with cut up banana & organic whole milk
    lunch: half of a grilled cheese on whole wheat bread
    dinner: chicken cutlets with broccoli and brown rice
    he will snack on goldfish and whole grain crackers through out the day. he loves crackers and peanut butter & peanut butter toast. i also do give him a cookie or ice cream or something tastey like that sometimes. other things he eats are scrambled egg & whole wheat toast, whole grain pasta with meatsauce or butter & parm cheese, mac and cheese, pizza, yogurt, pretzels. all kinds of stuff. drinks lots of water. & sometimes natural apple or orange juice.
