Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

What do you feed your 1yr old??

My DD just turned 1. She weaned herself off of bottles for the most part. I give her 6-8 oz in the morning, a bottle for nap time, and a bottle for bed. Sh likes water and apple juice during the day. She is a VERY picky eater!! I'm wondering what things you are feeding them for breakfast/lunch/dinner. I'm not providing enough variety but I'm stuck! She HATES all the prepackaged baby/toddler meals. She wants what we eat. But she hates veggies... Idk how to make her eat them. I'm needing more ideas on things she can/should be eating. Note: she still has absolutely no teeth! I can't believe she isn't even showing signs of getting a tooth!

Re: What do you feed your 1yr old??

  • Breakfast: Yogurt, blueberries, oatmeal, peaches (or whatever fruit is in season/on sale :-)

    Lunch/Dinner: Pasta, Veggie soup, mashed potatoes, chicken, she likes veggies so we have a lot of those. Maybe try those frozen veg w/ chz sauce or something to get her to eat it?

    Snack: Cheese stick, grapes (I cut in half and peel them), cucumbers, cereal bars, pirates booty puffs, cottage cheese

  • We're lucky because DS will eat just about anything, and he eats everything we eat.

  • My DD gets 1 8 oz bottle before bedand occasionally one before her nap. For breakfast she usually gets toast, eggs, fruit, french toast, yogurt, cereal or any mix of these things.  For lunch she gets whatever I'm eating like pasta, sandwich, or leftovers from dinner the night before.  For dinner she eats whatever we're having like lasagna, always a veggie, spagetti, soup. She eats absolutely everything. I haven't found anything she won't eat.

  • We really just give her whatever we're eating. It's rather remarkable what they can nom down without teeth. Fruit and veggies - if you really want, stick in a little water and microwave for like 10 seconds to soften a bit. Refried beans. Yogourt. Cottage cheese, well, any cheese, including handfuls of shredded. Fish. Meat. Rice. Eggs (usually in scrambled or omelet form). Pasta. Oatmeal. Sandwiches (although S prefers just eating sunbutter by the spoonful to actual sandwiches...). Tofu. Etc. S goes through phases where she won't eat something, but we just keep offering, and we only really offer what we're eating. Sometimes she says no at first, but when she sees us eating, then she wants our piece. Unless you have a family history of an allergy, you really can give LO almost anything. It doesn't need to be pureed or cut super tiny.

    Pretty much this for us, as well. Except right now DD hates being spoon-fed so I have to think of things she can pick up with her fingers.

  • My DD is loving Quinoa right now and its great for kiddos without any teeth; its also super high in protein and other nutrients.  Here are a few more of her favorites basics:

    Any kind of bean, bananas, strawberries, blue berries, peas

    DD is a great eater, though her mom (or dad) isn't so great at coming up with unique food options...luckily she doesn't seem to mind.  So a typical meal usually consists of a schmorgesborg of different simple foods.  For example, lunch could be peas, black beans, shredded cheese, and grapes. :)

    This for us too. Today breakfast was homemade pancakes, a banana, and cheese stick. Lunch was a pear, strawberries, a cheese and tomato sandwich. She had graham crackers and puffs for a snack and dinner was shepard's pie, green beans, and watermelon. Two of her favorite meals are chicken parm meatloaf and black bean burgers. She also loves cream cheese and hummus, so I put that on a lot (toast, rice cakes, veggies (the hummus)).

  • We usually do something like a hard boiled egg or a peanut butter and jelly bagel with a fruit for breakfast.

    He eats what I am eating for lunch. Today he had chicken, noodles, and peaches.

    Snacks are usually simple yogurt, animal crackers, regular crackers, cheese, fruit, he loves strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, and peaches.

    Obviously veggies are not on the list.  I haven't been able to get him to eat anything related to a veggie.
