  • Home made pizza with veggies and veggy cheese
    Home made bread sticks, sometimes with cheese inside
    Potato soup
    Quesadillas with home made (with a packet from the store) guacamole
    Bread and butter
    Spaghetti with sauce, cut up in a bowl.
    Home made pancakes

    That's all I can think of at the moment. Message me for recipes :)

  • My son is 16 months, but I'm guessing that's close enough.

    Breakfast: one waffle toasted or still frozen he likes either way, some kind of fruit, maybe half an apple or a can of peaches

    Lunch: some sort of meat, usually chicken turkey or ground beef... sometimes I do frozen chicken nuggets or meat balls but not usuallyone fruit, he loves grapes canned fruit or fresh apples or pears even oranges sometimesone veggie, fozen peas are his favorite, but he also loves green beans and squashone starch, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, an English muffin or some bread

  • Dinner: whatever we have, similar to lunch with protien fruit and veggiesat dinner he also usually eats a whole wheat roll

    He also nurses twice a day and drinks one sippy of cows milk and a few of watered down juice or plain water. He eats a snack or two in between meals, usually crackers or bread.

    We've worked hard to avoid sweets and fatty foods. Hope this helps

  • He also loves pasta. I cook a whole box then put it on a sheet pan to freeze. I spread them out so they don't freeze in one big clump. When they're frozen I move them to a ziplock. Then I can give him a handful at any meal. He'll eat them right from the freezer, he loves it!

  • Today he had little scrambled egg caserole, part of a banana and a yogert with water for breakfast

    Lunch he had Gerber graduates organic raviolis and baby food carrots (for some reason, the only veggies he will eat lately are baby food, nothing doing for the fresh, frozen, steamed or boiled) and an applesauce

    Dinner was roast beef with a couple bites of steamed veggies, mashed potatoes and yes, more raviolis. with a cookie for desert

    Through out eh day he drinks lots of water, some organic whole cow's milk and occasionally 50/50 juice. He had an oatmeal rasin cookie and a little fresh pineapple for snack earlier.

    Hope that helps

  • My son is 13months.

    Breakfast-Either 1 waffle cut up w/ syrup, or 3 french toast sticks, or 1 slice of french toast cut up w/ a whole egg soaked into it served w/ syrup, 1 pancake, and he always takes bites of our cereal as we are eating too.

    Lunch-chicken nuggets, Top ramen (We break it up small before we cook it, and when its done we let it set for a little while to cool and then drain the water) he loves it. Quesadillas, and that's pretty much all he'll eat for lunch

    Dinner-If he can eat what we are eating that is what he gets, if not he'll usually have some mac&Cheese. Like tonight, we are having Spaghetti, and sometimes he likes it sometimes he dosen't so if he won't eat it, we'll just make him some mac and cheese.

    Hope this helps

  • oh and for drinks (he no longer has a bottle at all)and snacks, he has-

    a full sippy cup of cows milk w/ breakfast and dinner

    a full sippy cup of "mots for tots" apple juice/water mix w/ his snack

    he has his snack between lunch and dinner, which is usually some gerber fruit snacks, or those gerber puffs.

    And around 7 o'clock we fill up a sippy cup of milk again and let him drink as much as he wants before he goes to bed at 8

  • My 20 mont old eats 3-4 meals a day with two snacks. Keep in mind this child is an great eater, nothing like I was as a child lol. As long as a child is growing you are usually ok. My mom had three girls and all of us were under the curve in weight but we ate when we were hungry. Dont worry about the charts either.

    1. Breakfast..... waffles, an egg and a banana

    2. soy mac and chesse, beechnut fruit snacks, yogurt

    3. sandwich

    4, grilled chicken, vegies and noodles

    and two snacks.
