How much does your 1yo eat in the day and what?(16 Posts)
Breakfast - porridge
2nd breakfast at childminder's - more porridge/ toast
milk before nap (aiming to drop this soon)
lunch - sandwiches/ salady bits/ soup/ pasta + fruit + yoghurt
snack - more fruit/ raisins + rice cakes/ toast + malt loaf sometimes
dinner - pasta/ rice/ bread + veg, often in cheesy sauce + rice pudding/ yoghurt depending on what's been eaten earlier in the day + fruit
all fairly small portions
oh yes, and though no meat, we make sure he eats beans/ lentils/ fish or egg most days
Breakfast: banana + Weetabix or 2 toast and 5oz milk
Mid morning: 5oz milk
Lunch: 2xhome made pancakes / bread + cream cheese/baby bel/1 egg omelette + salad veg + apple (softened in water with cinnamon)
Mid afternoon: 5oz milk (sometimes)
Dinner: chicken/fish/fish fingers(!)+ pasta/potato + veg (broccoli/carrots) + fruit OR whatever we're eating if timing suits
Bed: 5oz milk
He'll probably snack from our plates of we're eating at a different time (if we go out or have guests e.g.) and might have a couple of rice crackers in the afternoon if he skips his milk
Breakfast - about 5 rice crispie shapes if I'm lucky or 1/4 piece of toast with peanut butter
Lunch - shepherd's pie/ stew / soup occasionally followed by a yoghurt
Snacks - milk and a biscuit/ yoghurt if I'm in work or breastmilk if I'm not.
Dinner - not much, he'll take a little of whatever we're eating.
He's still breastfeeding and can take several feeds at night so I think he must be filling up on them. I'm slightly worried he's not eating enough but he's thriving weight and energy wise and I'm giving him vitamins so I'm just hoping he'll start to eat more soon.
My DS is 13 months old, today he ate:
Milk - full fat milk, about 2 or 3 ounces
Breakfast - cereal (oatibix and milk)
Snack - banana
Lunch - cheese and ham sandwich, cucumber, grapes and a yogurt. Water to drink
Dinner - sausage, mash, carrots and broccoli. Water to drink.
Milk - about 1 ounce
This is fairly normal for him. As you can see he's not a big fan of milk!
Since stopping his good consumption has gone through the roof.
My ds tanks up all morning and lunch but won't eat dinner hardly!
Oh, that's good to hear peppa thanks! It's hard to know what's normal as he's my first. I'm getting seriously tired of bf so I hope he'll be weaned by 19 months too!
Dd just one
scrambled egg (2 eggs)
baby crisp snack things
chicken, peas, sweetcorn, carrots
fruit smoothie pouch
bf before bed
She loves food
Some days lots and others not very much. I don't tend to offer snacks as I don't think he needs them. I used to give snacks to my eldest and found she just ate proportionately less at meal times.
Breakfast: Half a bowl of Ready Brek.
Lunch: Half a slice of cheese on toast followed by yoghurt.
Dinner: Beef casserole followed by a few Mini Cheddars and half a pear.
Oh, he had some milk in the afternoon and at bedtime.
Decent sized bowl of shreddies, handful of blueberries, 1/2 piece of toast. 7ozs cows milk
Biscuit drink of water
Sandwich/beans on toast/pasta/soup followed by a satsuma and some grapes. Cup of water
Banana and cup of milk
Roast dinner/lasagne/some sort of meat and veg meal. Eats quite a lot at tea time. Drink of water
7ozs cows milk before bed
<naked> sounds just like my boy. Exactly. I am still Breastfeeding, he is teething but I feel he's stocking up on bf in the night most nights. I'm sure his sisters had more good at this stage.. He's teething four teeth at once so maybe why he's different.. He is good for weight, but I just wonder if he is getting enough good food in him..
Today he had
Kid size bowl of ready break
Small portion of pizza bread
Sips of water
Sips if water
Bowl if porridge
A couple if grapes, berries, cheese cubes, one Banana
Offered and ate a kid size bowl of porridge for supper
Plus both nights 1-2 breastfeeds
It just depends.
I offer stuff but then it just gets wasted. I want to try more if a variety too. And make more time for more hot lunches as opposed to sandwiches/ yoghurts which he likes.. Sane for my 4 and 2.5yo. I'll make stuff and they don't eat it.
Usually love food but maybe I'm the one getting it wrong.
How do your little ones eating habits go with along side how they sleep at night?
Plus. I'm always in the go, so do you prep food? Cook batches up?
You'd think being on my third baby id have this down by now lol
Ds is 14 months and he typically has;
5.30-milk, 5oz full fat cows milk
8.00-1 weetabix with fruit pot, mini shredded wheat with blueberries or porridge with banana
10.30- slice of malt loaf, piece of fruit
12.00- homemade pizza, soup, sandwich, scrambled egg/beans on toast, jacket potato with tuna (often just whatever I'm having)followed by either fruit or a yogurt
2.30-3- crumpet, half slice of toast, pitta with hummus
6.00- Fish pie, stew, shepherds pie, curry, rissotto followed by yogurt/fruit/ginger biscuit/fruit cake
7.00 5oz milk
He has a very good appetite and seems to eat a lot for a child his age but he's following his centile- he's tall and quite lean. I try to make fruit and snacks different throughout the day so he has some variety. I batch cook a lot. I'll make fish pies, shepherds pies, curries etc and freeze them in toddler portions so they're easy to just reheat.
I find that he wakes for his morning milk (even) earlier if he doesn't eat very well in the evening but on the whole it doesn't make a great deal of difference.
