I have no clue how to feed my baby.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
What and how much should a one year old be eating? Is it pretty much anything? This is my first so I'm probably over thinking it but I just don't want to mess up.

At a year old, they can have honey.


Quoting horseap:

 Um no honey first of all.  But are you talking snacks or meals?

After a year old peanut butter and other allergens are fine to give as long as there is no family history of allergies.  


Quoting stickyfingers:

They shouldn't have peanut butter, strawberries and other things that are common for allergies. I think even oranges. It's not just a free for all when they turn one. Some things are dangerous too like nuts and popcorn

Quoting Anonymous:

At a yr old why can't they eat anything?



Quoting stickyfingers:

No they can't eat anything if they have teeth don't listen to pp! Give her mashed fruit like bananas. I would give mine rice crispies all soggy lol if you give meat make sure it's teeny pieces but she should have mostly fruits and veggies right now. And milk. Are you still nursing or giving formula?

There is really nothing to prove any of that. All my boys were eating those foods at one year old. (Except the nuts... But we don't eat those usually.. just peanut butter and such).

OP, I started just giving little amounts of whatever we were. eating as a family. We never did *baby food* or anything special..

I fed my 1yo what everybody else ate and all the little things for whatever gerber had packaged for his age. His meals would be mostly veggies then fruit, of course a little grain, and the least was meat. U have to make everything small enough so they won't choke. U should ask ur pedi what foods not to give them, but other than that just make sure it's chopped or mashed up well enough

Cut up fruits, veggies and meats. Toast, soups, pasta, sandwiches, rice, cereal, oatmeal, etc.
There is lots of options that they can have.
The only things that should be avoided is choking hazards and any food that there is family allergic to.

At a year old, peanut butter and honey are both ok.

Hotdogs cut into tiny pieces are also ok (although we don't eat them in our house at all.. :-/ )
