What are your LOs eating on an average day?

My ds, 17 mo

Morning bottle, milk about 7oz
Breakfast is either oatmeal and fruit or waffles/pancake/toast with fruit

He usually naps through what would be snack time, if not he would have a little milk and a gram cracker or fruit and Cheerios.

Lunch is usually whatever the big kids eat,
Chicken and tots or soup, a sandwich etc

Depending on if he naps or how his mood is he may have a snack or a small bottle mid afternoon

Dinner, this is getting tricky, sometimes he eats what we do, right now he loves meatballs and macaroni , but may not tomorrow. Last night he only ate oranges and one tiny piece of ham :/

Bedtime, 8oz milk in a bottle


He's certainly not underweight but it seems like he's not eating much? What are your babies up to?

My 20 mo old eats different everyday..sometimes I feel she is not eating enough. I think it looks normal what your little one is eating. Dinner is almost always the smallest meal little ones eat. Try to keep the early meals good so if he isnt interested in dinner you dont worry too much

Your menu sounds great to me :).  If he's eating what you are eatin, then you should be fine :).

Leo's got an odd diet because of the magnitude of his food allergies.

 my 13 month old -- we just stopped her morning bottle she loves her straw up.

breakfast - stage 2 fruit with oatmeal and either cereal or pancakes, waffle or breakfast bar what ever my oldest daughter eats that morning

lunch-- a meat a veggie and a fruit or a pasta dish (she is at the sitters so she usually has leftovers from their dinner the night before).  

dinner last night she had mashed potatoes, roast,(Not big on meat) corn biscuits and some noodles.  

she has snacks throughout the day and drinks about 10 - 20 oz of milk from her cup and she has about 15 oz of water during the day sometimes she has a few ounces of juice in her cup. 

bedtime she drinks 3 to 6 oz from her bottle.  She is about done with bottles.

Mine eats what she wants (with my permission of course). I ask her all the time what she wants because I don't want her to miss a meal if she doesn't want what I'm making. Dinner on the other hand I make without asking or else I would get different answers ever 5 seconds lol.

Other than having milk four times a day, he drinks water.  He pretty much eats what we eat.  I try not to make anything special for him unless he is sick.  Tonight is a casserole with zucchini, yellow squash, spinach and cheese ravioli, ricotta, marinara and parmesan on top.
