I have a ten month old who is moving quickly in the feeding department. She demolishes stage 3 baby food and seems most happy when she's feeding herself with finger foods(cheese cubes, crackers, easy mac, chicken nuggets, banana chunks). I am very much pregnant and have a super messy husband (constantly cleaning!). I don't have a lot of time for cooking since i spend most of my time off my feet (sciatic nerve and swelling nightmares!) and i'm new at this. I need ideas for super easy meals that are filling. Thanks in advance for the suggestions!

Feeding them what you're eating is cool, but if you're like me, you may not always be eating when they're hungry........My 4 yr old likes the Kids Cuisine meals but that could get 18 mo and 4 yr old both like the cheap chicken nuggets and tater tots...I but a big bag of each and within 5 minutes they both have a meal (I usually give them fruit or gummies with it)......If you don't mind them having not so healthy food, the small deep dish pizzas are easy (couple minutes in the microwave and 3 minutes in the oven)...again, not the healthiest but mine like it.

Will try to think of more easy stuff

Why not just feed her what you eat?
That's what we did with DD.
Never saw the point in "kid foods"
Most of what people think as kid foods are junk and kids become picky because they are used to the hot dogs, chicken nuggets, etc!

The kids eat what we eat.

Lamb chops! Seared in a hot cast iron skillet. I season then with a lamb medley and sometimes I squeeze lemon over or I take the chops out of the pan, add some balsamic vinegar and butter and stock and let it boil down and add chops back in.

I also brown grass fed hamburger meat, and add it to tomato sauce or make it into meatballs and serve it to him with a veggie.

He loves peas and asparagus and we discovered he loves roasted herocot verts (those thin green beans).

I have tons of ideas if you want more you can message me.

I followed baby led weaning - just google and go to their blog/website. There's tons of recipes there.

At 9 months old I started giving my son meat. His first meat was lamb chops!

My daughter is quite picky now but when she was younger she ate everything. Favorites of hers are sloppy jo (or anything that has to do with ground beef since she finds that easiest to chew ) , hot dogs, spaghetti, rice, mashed potatoes, veggies and fruits (any ) and toddler meals they sell in stores. Hope it helps!

Ours just ate with us--just make her pieces smaller and let her try everything.

Not sure, I just gave formula until a year and than slowly started feeding him whatever I ate, but heres a bump.

Lunch meant and cheese cut up into pieces with crackers, toast, grilled cheese, beans (baked, black, cannelloni, etc), fresh fruit of any kind, rice, veggies (steamed & cut up), pasta (spaghetti, lasagna, homemade Mac and cheese), mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, chicken, apple sauce, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs

Both kids were just eating what we ate at that point.
