What did your baby actually eat today?

I thought it might be interesting, and also hopefully inspirational for those of us who might feel we're making the same things regularly! So, what did your baby - 6m to 18m, any age that still has some milk and might be playing around with weaning - actually eat today?

12mo DD had...

4oz formula when she woke up
A bowl of Shreddies and the rest of the formula (2oz) for breakfast
Some sultanas is mid-morning
Chicken and lentil stew and some tinned mandarin segments for lunch
A considerable amount of Pizza Express pizza crust to keep her distracted while we ate blush - my parents were over and food always seems to go downhill when they are here, plus it did at least keep her amused
4oz milk before her nap
A banana when she woke up
A pile of plain cauliflower and broccoli, a kiwi, and a fromage frais for dinner
Then it will be 6oz of formula before bed

Anyone else wants to share?

MrsBungleBear Sat 26-Jan-13 18:18:12

Ds is 8.5 months:

7oz of formula when woke
1 Weetabix with cows milk
Slice of toast


Veg soup and crumpet


7oz formula

Cottage pie with veg
A Heinz fruit pot thing

7 oz formula before bed.

12 month old ds had:
About 3oz of cows milk first thing.
Went out for breakfast so different to normal and had a slice of buttered toast, natural yoghurt with fruit salad and some raisins.
Rice cake and rest of raisins at 12
Tortilla wrap spread with Philly and a banana.
About 3oz of cows milk.
Dinner was cheesy pasta mixed with spinach and sweetcorn then some blueberries.
Will have breastfeed before bed smile

blushingmare Sat 26-Jan-13 18:33:05

Dd is 7.5 months and had:

BF at 3:30

BF when woke

A couple of spoonfuls of Readybrek and a quarter of apple

BF when woke after nap

Pasta tubes with Philadelphia and spinach - about 5 tubes and lots of spinach
Kiwi and apple purée mixed with yoghurt - lots of spoonfuls!

BF when woke after nap

Tomato and cauliflower curry (about 2 tablespoons worth), rice balls (2) and strips of spiced lamb (2)
5 strawberries (first time she'd had them - went down a treat!)

She'll now have a BF before bed and another around 11:30

DS 9 months (7m corrected) had:

- A few spoonfuls of porridge with fruit purée (reluctantly)
- Spinach, leek and pea purée, and some sticks of pear
- Two fingers of pitta with houmous

Plus bf, which I don't really keep a track of.

Not a great food day, but not unusual for him.

NellyBluth Sat 26-Jan-13 19:49:26

Tea, DD used to be like that, she would get through the day with a yoghurt and a few crusts and that was it. It's tough to stay relaxed sometimes, isn't it? Now I can't get enough in her some days.

Blushing - tomato and cauliflower curry sounds nice, I'd eat that as well as DD - any chance of a recipe (for a very poor cook!) or a link to it?

TeWiSavesTheDay Sat 26-Jan-13 19:58:39

Please excuse how processed this is! End of the month eating out of cupboard/freezer. My 13mo had:

Small bowl of porridge with milk,
1 banana,
cup of Milk,
Slice of wholemeal toast,
2 spoons baked beans
Small bit of chocolate tiffin,
Small pot raisins,
Spoon mashed potato,
1 fishfinger
Cup of milk.

He also totally refused to try a bunch of vegetables...

FadBook Sat 26-Jan-13 20:06:18

17 month old:

BF at 5am (still doesn't sleep through confused)

Breakfast: 1 slice of toast and banana

Lunch: cheese spread sandwich, cucumber, grated cheese. Small cup of orange juice (shes never had juice before and loved it!)

Dinner: homemade mushroom curry with home made egg fried rice

Snacks: huge handful of raisins, rice cracker with philadelphia and half an apple

BF throughout the day but no idea how much, def more for thirst not big feeds. She's been too busy playing in the snow to want milk!

WhyIRayLiotta Sat 26-Jan-13 20:15:17

DD is 13 months.

8:20 BF
9:30 1/2 slice of toast and dairylea
10:30 wheetabix and organic fruit pot
2:30 BF
3:30 beans, toast, plum.
5:30 BF
6:00 pasta with tomato sauce. Petit filous rice pot.
7:30 BF

Nelly I know confused I keep telling myself that it is ok as he is still having plenty of bf.
I could probably shovel more into him (literally grin) if I stuck with purées, but I wanted to encourage him to try and feed himself - up until this week he has insisted I hold everything for him while he sits there like a roman emperor, but all of a sudden he is getting the idea! Unfortunately this means he now wants to be in everything, resulting in weetabix and yoghurt being flung all over the room - thankfully finger food is a bit less messy!

StrawberryMojito Sat 26-Jan-13 20:32:08

DS 15 months had:
6am 7oz milk
7.30am 1.5 weetabix and milk

3pm 3 cut up grapes and a babybel.
4.45 slice of toast, bit more carrot, 1 baby fromage frais
6.15 7oz milk.

Not sure how that compares to most his age.

6.30am - BF
8am - Half a pouch of banana and peach porridge, a handful of Cheerios
10am - BF

7pm - BF

NellyBluth Sat 26-Jan-13 21:31:07

I'm actually quite reassured by how small some of these portions are - sometimes I read the weaning threads and think that my 12mo doesn't eat enough solid food and still likes her milk a lot, but it seems everyone else does!

And I like that fact that other people have bad days and clear out the fridge grin DD's veg tonight was frozen veg...

Weightlessbaby Sat 26-Jan-13 21:40:33

DD 11 months

7am - 2-3oz formula
8am - 1 weetabix with frozen mixed berries (defrosted, obviously) and cow's milk. Slice of toast with peanut butter
10am - Nice biscuit
12pm - peach. 1/2 jar of pasta based 10month+ baby food. Fromage Frais.
1pm - 2-3oz formula
4pm - little taste of cake
5.30pm - 1 tomato plus little bits of cheese. 2 icecubes spag bol. Shared fat free yoghurt (out of other suitable desserts!)
6.30pm - 2-3oz formula then bed.

She's really been cutting back on her milky recently but can eat a lot (this was a relatively light day). She also has a cup of water with each meal (not unusual for her to finish this) and is also offered water throughout the day.

Newtothisstuff Sat 26-Jan-13 21:57:01

Dd is 8 months she had

5oz Milk at 7.45

Scrambled egg with toast at 9.30

A jar of some gross smelling lumpy mush grin, a banana, a yogurt at 13.00

Spaghetti bolognaise and some organix cheese puff things at 17.00

Ella's kitchen fruit pouch at 18.00 because she kept trying to steal DD1's dinner

5 oz milk at 19.00 before bed

Sounds like she eats loads but she's a tiny one honest grin

McPhee Sat 26-Jan-13 22:02:46

Dd 6.5 months

5.30am BF..another one who doesn't sleep!

DS will not take any milk before food, he prefers the solids! He sips at water with meals.

Weightlessbaby Sat 26-Jan-13 22:37:50

Am finding this all quite interesting and reassuring - although there are variations everyone seems to be on roughly the same page

FadBook Sat 26-Jan-13 22:57:25

I've always been of the view that if they're hungry, they'll let you know. We did BLW from 6 months and dd eats most things. If she doesn't want it, we know about it smile if she's hungry, we know about it grin.

Anyone worrying about food intake really should just trust their instincts and their dc's choices about food. Unless there is a weight gain issue, live and let live.

My post earlier is a typical day, but some days dd eats less, other days shit loads more- I trust her to communicate to me when she's hungry and when she's full ("no, no, no"...!)

Ds nearly 14 months

7am - approx 7oz cows milk
8am- 1.5 weetabix,
1130am -quarter cheese and cucumber sandwich, whole banana, natural yoghurt
2pm - bowl of blueberries, cereal bar,
5pm- pasta, carrots, baby corn and chicken, melon slices
630pm- approx 7 oz cows milk

Water offered throughout day

LimeFlower Sat 26-Jan-13 23:12:10

FadBook,I'll agree about them letting know if they are hungry.Sometimes I question myself whether DS has had enough/too much of something.I'm a bit sad that BF is on decrease in our case but I can't ignore DS ogling our plates and trying to grab something.

ceeveebee Sat 26-Jan-13 23:26:43

DTs are 14 mo
Today they had
830am 5oz cows milk on waking
930am 1 weetabix each with apples and strawberries, and 1/2 slice toast with marmite each
11-1pm nap
130pm salmon, boiled egg, new potatoes and lentils (a bit of a random combination, we had salmon nicoise salad but they're not lettuce eaters!) with blueberries afterwards
330pm a few corn snacks after swimming
4-5 pm nap
530pm lamb hot pot with red cabbage and a yoghurt
730pm 8oz milk
Not many snacks today, as at weekends their naps are all up the wall and never seems time to fit any more food in!

Portion wise, they eat about 1 adult portion between them for each meal. They have hollow legs, especially my 9th centile DD who eats for England

Weightlessbaby Sat 26-Jan-13 23:35:22

ceeveebee, we always say DD has hollow legs too as she is little but eats and eats!

When I say I find it all reassuring it's because I've always tried to let DD lead the way with weaning (eg we started at 4 months because I felt she was ready) but almost worry about not being worried, if that makes sense! I think she's getting all she needs but I often let her take charge and (attempt to) feed herself, which she loves - it all seems to go down eventually anyway!

SwivelHips Mon 28-Jan-13 10:52:55

DS nearly 8 months. This was yesterday:

First thing BF
ReadyBrek (seems to be going off it, so added fruit puree, lobbed it over shoulder so rest of box in the bin I think)
6oz formula
Toast cheese/grated apple
6oz formula
Roast dinner followed by yoghurt
7oz formula
then bf'd all bloody night it feels like sad

geegeeleigh Mon 28-Jan-13 11:48:45

dd nearly 10 months yesterday's menu:
9.15 half a bowl of readibrek with cows milk n fruit puree (normally has brekkie at 8 but she decided to have a lie in!)
11.00- 8oz bottle of formula
1.00- chickpea n spinach curry with mashed veggies n a Heinz fruity custard pot thing
3.30- veggie finger foods n a mini rice cake then 5 oz bottle of formula
6.00- fish n pasta with sauce n mashed veg n a Pettit filous yoghurt for pud
8.00- 9oz bottle before bed

heymammy Mon 28-Jan-13 19:20:39

Ds, 9 months (10 months next week)

B/f at 7ish
Bowl of shreddies with blue milk at 8

1/2 slice of warburtons raisin& cinnamon loaf for snack before am nap 10ish

4oz bottle
Scrambled egg with 1/4 of white toast for lunch 12.30

B/f after school run so 3.15ish

Small handful of Cheerios to stop him moaning whilst I made tea

1/2 burger bap spread with phili, chunk of cheddar cheese, strips of burger (only ate one strip) for tea. Prob ate around 1/2 with the rest being mushed and strewn around grin. A few spoonfuls of yoghurt for pudding.

Before bed he'll get a 5oz bottle then he'll wake twice in the night hmm ...bottle on first waking and b/f on second waking.

8mo DS eats like a horse at nursery then eats pretty much nothing with me hmm Yesterday with me he ate:

One teeny tiny end of a spoon of Ready Brek with apple purée. He refused the Weeta-Bix and 1/4 crumpet offered earlier. Remaining Ready Brek went in the bin, dogs got crumpet, I ate Weeta-Bix.

About one sixteenth of a savoury Plum pouch (we were out at a restaurant where he also ate a couple of fingertip-fuls of my guacamole and sour cream). Remainder of pouch went in the bin £1.39 grumblegrumblegrumble

A whole pot of Rachel's Organic My First Yoghurt. Empty pot (thank God) went in the bin.

Quarter of a piece of eggy bread. Dogs ate the other three quarters.

Four BFs slotted in and around there, plus about four overnight.

The end. That's the most food I'll ever see him eat, while nursery comment on what hollow legs he has. I've found weaning such a crushing disappointment because I'm a real foodie and mad keen cook with a baby who is completely disinterested in food. <sobs>

NellyBluth Mon 28-Jan-13 20:36:39

Elphaba, I'll swap for a few days - DD is currently loving her food, but I'm neither a cook nor particularly interested in food, so I have no idea what I'm doing!

7 month old

Lots of breastfeeding.

Large piece of yellow pepper (not sure how much was eaten)
Ellas kitchen pouch
spagetti bolognese (not sure how much was eaten either, baby played with it mainly and spread it around high chair - what a mess)
yoghurt (spread around high chair and mixed in with bolognese)

Nelly I was so looking forward to BLW and had all these delicious family meals planned. Turned out he was a prolific gagging vomiter (still is) so I took a step back and made him his own soups, dahls, lovingly texturised shepherd's pies, soft-cooked cauliflower-broccoli cheese, omelettes with finely chopped veg, without a gram of baby rice in sight...all ends up on the floor, in the dogs or goes in the bin. Unless it's yoghurt. Or mush given to him at nursery.


LimeFlower Mon 28-Jan-13 22:35:00

Standard:milk bar(bf),baby rice,youghurt with fruit,rice cracker

Gummed 2 thick slices of cucumber as still teething,mashed cream of celeriac with cheese and noodles(loved it) and pasta with pesto (gone within seconds)

Gulped the bottle and the milk bar.

sharond101 Mon 28-Jan-13 22:40:49


7.30 6oz breastmilk
8.45 1 weetabix cows milk + apple and pear puree
12.45 1/2 bowl chicken soup, 1/2 slice wholemeal bread + water
13.30 6ozs formula
15.30 small portion custard + 3 big raisins
16.45 sweet potato, chicken, peas, carrots and corn + water
19.45 8ozs breastmilk

BertieBotts Mon 28-Jan-13 22:41:50

DS is 4 years old and ate less than most of these so don't worry grin

He's had
1 (small adult sized) bowl of cheerios with milk
1 slice of toast with butter
Presumably - milk and fruit snack at nursery
Lunch - one quarter of an egg sandwich, two spoonfuls of a yoghurt (it was "watery")
Snack - packet of hula hoops
Dinner - one slice of toast with butter, about four baked beans
One and a half gingerbread men which we baked.

But the other day he ate so much that he was sick all night so who knows what goes through their heads confused Also lack of fruit/veg because I'm overdue a shop blush

NellyBluth Tue 29-Jan-13 09:50:22

I'm loving getting the inspiration from here - will be trying tomato and cauliflower curry, and eggy bread too for slower weekend breakfasts

Yesterday DD had:

6oz formula
Raisin and banana porridge with cow's milk
Another pile of brocolli, cauli and peas (I get stuck trying to find non-carb based meals!), half a nectarine, half a kiwi and a fromage frais
4ox formula
Some Quavers
Half an English muffin with pesto and cheese (think that was nicked from MN too) and the rest of her kiwi
6oz formula

SwivelHips Tue 29-Jan-13 13:54:20

I tried eggy bread and it was pants. No wonder DS was like hmm. Before I went on mat leave I was quite bright and I could cook. Now i'm a blethering sleep deprived fool that can't make eggy bread.
Can i ask about the crumpets and muffins - are these shop bought? don't tell me you're all frigging baking too? <inadequate face>

sleeplessinderbyshire Tue 29-Jan-13 14:08:38

yesterday 6 1/2 month old DD2 was at nursery so I'm not 100% sure what she ate because our babysitter forgot to bring her diary home

Today so far she's had

Breast feeds at 3 and 7am
830 bowl of readybrek made with cows milk and fruit puree
one of my cranberry wheats

1130 breastfeed

1230 plum baby salmon/spinach stage 2 pot plus several sppons of my baked beans and scrambled egg, 3/4 of a rachael's dairy yoghurt

She'll have a breastfeed around 4 and then tea at 530 which will be an attempt to get her to eat the casserole I made for her yesterday one portion of which was rejected after nursery (2-3 oz baby pot portion) plus some fruit puree

she'll then have a monster breastfeed at 7pm and 1-2 feeds before 7am

She is a totally piglet compared with her 3 yr old sister who eats about a quarter of the volume and none of the range

NellyBluth Tue 29-Jan-13 14:32:07

Oh, god, no, shop bought muffins! I know you have to keep salt low but I don't add salt to anything cooked at home, she eats loads of fruit and veg, so I just give her normal bread, muffins and crumpets. I think there's a fine line between doing your best to feed your child healthily and not make them poorly, and turning yourself into a wreck making every single thing from scratch.

Disclaimer: I didn't even buy pouches, DD is still fed from jars sometimes at 12mo. Little tyke loves 'em and won't eat anything else when she is poorly <grr>

Florin Tue 29-Jan-13 15:01:52

My 7 month old today has had:
7:30 when he woke had 7oz of milk
8:30 breakfast-2 weetabix with full fat milk
11:00 5oz bottle
12:45 lunch 6 potato size wedges of butternut squash, an oatmeal and apple muffin that we made yesterday and a yoghurt.
Dinner haven't had it yet but he will have some stuffed pasta probably about 8 bits and steamed broccoli probably about 5 florets followed by a muffin
6:00 7oz milk and then sleeps through the night

tory79 Tue 29-Jan-13 21:51:48

Ds is 16 months old and today he has had

7am bf
830am decent sized bowl of readybrek with mashed banana (ate most of it)
1030am a few rice cakes
1130am ellas fruit puree pouch
1215pm egg mayo sandwich (2 slices of bread) and tomato slices (ate 3/4 of the sandwich and fed me all the tomato slices hmm)
1245pm bf
3pm organix gingerbread man
5pm more rice cakes - need them to keep him occupied while I'm getting changed after his swimming lesson!
6pm small bowl of macaroni cheese with broccoli and chicken, strawberries, yoghurt
745pm bf
Then should sleep through the night

A seven month old who eats two Weeta Bix? <Gazes sadly at 8.5mo DS throwing toast at the dogs and screaming at any offer of porridge>

<hides thread in misery>

SwivelHips Wed 30-Jan-13 13:24:45


LimeFlower Wed 30-Jan-13 21:53:54

Usual:baby rice,milk bar,yoghurt with fruit,

Granny fed him:quite big portion of soup-she had to stop feeding him as he kept eating and eating.

After the soup he ate 3 big chips and chunk of chicken breast.

He's eating like a horse sometimes!

LimeFlower Wed 30-Jan-13 21:55:09

Could somebody please explain to me what readybrek is and where to find it?Thanks smile

ceeveebee Wed 30-Jan-13 21:59:11

Instant porridge stuff, no added salt or sugar. It's sold in all supermarkets in the UK

HarderToKidnap Wed 30-Jan-13 22:06:29

Really reassuring thread! I thought I had a terrible eater but maybe he is more average than I thought...

Today we had:

Small bowl of porridge with half a banana mashed in, ate about half
The other half of the banana and half an apple
Broccoli muffin, few corn snacks, half a fish ball, matchbox size of cheese, a plum, a few AK biscuits
A whole chicken drumstick, about 10 baby spoons of mashed root veg, 14 grapes and a petit filous
BF before bed.
Has BF most mornings too, depending on wake time.

sleeplessinderbyshire Wed 30-Jan-13 22:57:20

HarderToKidnap - that sounds like loads and loads of food to me

(gannet baby off solids entirely today, her 3 yr old sister only eats dry shreddies and toast and marmite/peanut butter at the moment)

LimeFlower Wed 30-Jan-13 23:29:37

ceeveebee,thank yousmile

LO is 9 months. Yesterday was:

7 oz bottle.
Porridge (made with cows milk) with half a banana
Tiny bit of water
2 crepes with peanut butter and raisins
7oz bottle
2 Organix apple rice cakes
Bit more water
Steak pie, mash and peas!
7oz bottle

Loislane78 Tue 05-Feb-13 20:59:17

McPhee I'm impressed how much your LO 6.5 mo eats smile. How long did it take to get up to that much food? I only started weaning about 10 days ago and have only given some fruit/veg once a day at lunch so far. She's just shy of 6 mo so thinking I should be upping what I'm offering? I was surprised she's been gobbling stuff up so maybe I'm being stingy.

How soon did everyone start 'offering' 3 meals/snacks?

DS2 nearly 8m, today he has had

Breakfast 7.30 - Strawberry and Banana Porridge, made with 2.5oz formula (CMPI)
6oz formula

10.00 - 6oz formula

Lunch 12.00 - Courgette,Pea and Potato puree
2 small rice cakes

2.30 - 80z formula

Tea 4.30 - Baby rice, made with 2.5 oz formula
1 small rice cake

Bedtime bottle - 8oz

ceeveebee Tue 05-Feb-13 21:12:05

I think we were up to 3 meals with our twins by about 9 months. Took it very slowly as DD was reluctant to eat anything at all at first (although DS was keen) and didn't want to push her. At 14.5 months still don't offer 2 x snacks - sometimes 1, sometimes none. 3 very good meals though.

flossy101 Tue 05-Feb-13 21:15:51

DS is 7 months.

Today he had

8am 7oz bottle
9am couple teaspoons porridge and one finger sized piece of banana
11am 7 oz
12pm offered ellas pouch, flatly refused to open mouth so had one solider of toast, 2 raspberries and segment of orange.
3pm 7 oz
7pm potatoes, chicken and peas, gummed at it all, then spits out <sigh>
8pm 7oz - sleeps through

LimeFlower Tue 05-Feb-13 21:34:35

I know every baby is different but I'm surprised how much/little some of them eat.
Now I'm wondering whether DS is getting enough but no way I'm going to offer him formula during the day if I could still bf him.

He's 8 mo and having just 1 7oz formula at bedtime.Tonight he drank just 5oz as he gummed nearly whole toast with avocado and creamy cheese earlier on.

He's bf during the night (a couple of times) and in the morning,then has some strawberry&banana porridge followed by yoghurt with fruit.Offered breast during a day,he takes it but there's still milk left.Sometimes a biscuit or rice cake during a day but after bf.

He's got chunky legs and 3 spare tyres on his tummy--manboobs--,full cheeks.He'a very alert and smiley happy soul but I'm still questioning if he eats enough.

Somebody please slap me.

OK, 16mo twins, have had a good-ish couple of days:

Handful of Cheerios to keep them occupied whilst I sort things out
Share a banana
Porridge sweetened type

No mid-morning snack

Tuna and cream cheese wraps
Cucumber, if at nursery (thrown on floor if at home!)
Goodies oatcake thing
Ellas fruit smoothie sachet (bear with me here...)

Afternoon snack
Sticks of cheese
Dried apricots

Beef & mushroom casserole (beef roughly blended as they're odd about meat texture)
Peas & mashed potato
Slice banana cake
Raisins while I clear up

No fruit of any kind other than bananas. Two weeks ago I couldn't get enough fruit into them - bananas, pears, plums, peaches, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, clementines, pineapple, mango, sometimes melon, occasionally apple, all devoured. Now universally rejected except banana hmm. Hence the smoothies. Babies are wierd

er1507 Tue 05-Feb-13 21:58:59

FadBook Tue 05-Feb-13 22:30:13

<slaps LimeFlower> grin

Stop comparing to other babies!

They're all different.

You don't hear of babies or children being starved when there is food readily available and offered, that's because they're not starved, they're thriving and happy. Just offer and they'll either take it or reject it or wind you up and throw it on the floor! grin

gwenniebee Tue 05-Feb-13 22:39:15

Dd 6.5mo had:
bf on waking
heinz baby cereal at about 8.30am
bf at 12
bf at 3
about two tablespoons chicken, butternut and parsnip casserole stuff roughly mashed at 4.45
bf at 7.45

She'll very probably wake at least once for bf in the night. Sometimes (most days) she has some finger food to play with at lunch with me but it didn't work out today. Next week I shall introduce lunch properly!

FadBook thanks slaps back wink

DS always accepts food but not always eat it-sometimes he prefers to smear it over his highchair creating new pattern hmm

DS almost 9mo has had a funny few days; I think his teething is putting him off eating things he has to make an effort to eat sad But he had a reasonable day.

6am - bf
7.30am - most of a pouch of banana and apricot porridge; a handful of Cheerios
9.30am - bf
12pm - a few corn ring thingies; slice of toast (milk roll) cut into pieces and dipped in spicy lentil dhal soup; a couple of spoons of the soup; about 1/3 of a strawberry yoghurt
2.30pm - bf
4pm - snacky bf
5pm - sweet potato, red pepper and broccoli pieces, eventually mashed up and from a spoon because he was resistant to eating them in chunks today; the rest of the yoghurt

Yesterday he ate

Breakfast at 8:00am: one slice buttered toast. Some tinned peaches chopped up.
Snack about 10:30: a banana
Lunch at 1:00: bowl of porridge and a yoghurt
Snack about 3:30: a half slice of toast with Philly cheese. Dd4 had the other half!
Dinner about 5:00: home made chicken and leak pie with mash potato with carrot and swede in the mash. I kind of mashed the pie up for him to but he left most of the pastry and ate the filling and mash.

Today his had:
One weetabix and cows milk for breakfast.
A small box of raisins and a banana for a snack
One Soft boiled egg with soldiers for lunch
His just eating some diced up cubes of cheese now
For dinner his having spag Bol with us

Lois - by 7 months, my LO was having three 'meals' a day. By meal, I mean two ice-cubes of some sort of mashed food, plus a couple of fingers of toast/piece of veg or fruit.

Today he ate (aged 9.5 months)
3 7oz bottles
A few Cheerios (gone off breakfast this week)
Chicken and mushroom noodles for lunch
Handful of raisins as a wee snack
Tomato and veg pasta for dinner

We've just started weaning DD (5 months) and today she had:

9am: 8oz formula
Midday: Baby rice with some Ella's pouch, about 10 spoons
1pm: 8oz formula
4.30pm: 7oz formula
5.30pm: Vegetable risotto (pureed), about 10 spoons
7.30pm: 7oz formula

She'll have another bottle (dream feed) before we go to bed, probably 5-6oz

DS (2.3) had:

Breakfast: Beaker of whole milk and bowl of bitesize blueberry shredded wheats with some cheerios spinkled on top

Snack: Yoghurt covered raisins

Lunch: Gnocci, chicken, cheese, grapes, prawns, sweetcorn and also stole a bit of my cheese on toast

Snack: Satsuma and a milky bar (treat for doing his first wee on the toilet after using the potty for 3 months and refusing to use the toilet!)

Dinner: Fish cake, potatos and peas
Pudding: Small slice of cheesecake with melon and mango chunks

I am not posting what my 14 month old DD eats. It's ridiculous and I have no idea where she puts it. blush

Maebe Sat 16-Feb-13 18:37:58

13mo slightly under the weather and sulky today. 6oz milk and a massive bowl of muesli started the day well, but then it went downhill - a few spoons of chicken and tomato pasta went down before it got spat out, so all she had for lunch was about a dozen cheese (baby) crisps. Maybe 3oz of milk in the afternoon, a rice cake and a few raisins, and then for dinner she got maybe half of a half of (iyswim) cinnamon and raisin bagel, one little yoghurt, and a few mouthfuls of banana. Has refused everything else. Frustrating when she is usually a good eater!

The Commanderling is being a bit of a refusenik at the moment - teething, I think, as well as a cold. And apparently she can no longer use her own hands unless she has a satsuma hmm. Anyway, at the venerable age of 9 month 10 days:

Porridge and half a banana (a sizeable bowl at that)
2 arancini made from last night's butternut squash risotto
sucked on some cucumber; threw it on the floor
1 satsuma
A bit of panini which she ate happily because I wasn't watching
1 dried apricot
4 sad fusilli shapes with ratatouille
Fromage frais

2 breastfeeds still to come. She used to eat way more than this and has decided she likes purees and spoonfeeding... sigh!

Maebe Tue 05-Mar-13 13:28:30

I like this thread, still getting lots of inspiration.

13mo had yesterday...

6oz cow's milk at breakfast and bedtime, 4oz in the afternoon
Banana and raisin porridge for breakfast
Pasta shells with pesto and mixed frozen veg, I feel that this is going to be a new staple as it is so ridiculously cheap (and I thought the pasta-pesto thing was a bit of a myth, but apparently not!), fromage frais, and blueberries
Some Ella's Kitchin biscuits as a treat, left-over from when she was ill the other week and refused to eat anything but biscuits

Then DP got caught up at work at DD had to stay an hour later at the CMs, who very kindly gave her some of their dinner, so she apparently had fish fingers, chips and beans, and she ate it like it was going out of fashion

I did end the day thinking that the CM's meal could be a cracking AIBU grin
(I'm joking, obviously I'm extremely grateful she didn't mind us running late and happily made some extra food)
