hiya. could anyone give me some ideas on what sort of things i could feed my one year old ds for lunch and dinner. He eats 3 meals a day. Lately, i have been feeding him prepared baby food in jars. i really would appreciate any suggestions/meal ideas...etc. thank you.
Omelette with ham, cheese and/or whatever veg I have knocking about.
Scrambled egg and toast.
Boiled egg and soldiers.
Cheese on toast.
Various different sandwiches, ham, tuna, cheese, peanut butter, egg etc with things like cheese cubes, cucumber, tomatoes, olives or grapes on the side.
Breadsticks, carrot and cucumber batons with houmous.
Crackers and cheese with tomatoes and cucumber.
She also has a piece of fruit and/or a yoghurt.
For dinner she usually has what we have, unless we're having curry or something. Off the top of my head recently she's had:
Fish Pie Spag Bol Chilli (very mild) and rice Stew, mash and veg Sunday Roast dinner (chicken this week) Salmon, new pots and veg Chicken pie, roast potatoes and veg Shepherds Pie Smoked haddock, new pots and veg Sweet and sour pork and rice Lamb tagine Moussaka
For puddings I make things like rice pudding and semolina in batches and freeze it, which I also do with a lot of leftovers so on the days where she can't have what we do there is always a meal there for her. Other puddings are yoghurt, or baked apple etc.
Now he is one you can pretty much give him what you are eating, just cut into pieces he can manage. The only change I have made to how I cook is I don't use salt any more as it's not good for them.
