1 year old feeding schedule(4 Posts)
Can someones please share their schedule?
My one year old was never fond of milk and even now she won’t drink it. cows or goats milk.
Trying to focus on solids but not sure if I’m doing this right.
11:00 nap ( dream feed formula 5oz)
She won’t take a bottle after dinner. I get up at 11:30 ish and dream feed her so she sleeps till 7:30.
I give her fruits with her meal. Trying not to give anything inbetween as she doesn’t get hungry or if I do she won’t eat her meals.
To meet her calcium needs you can give her parmiggiano reggiano (the original Italian parmesan cheese, not the one labelled "parmesan") or grana Padano cheese. Both have the highest calcium content and a single ounce will cover one third of her needs.
You can give her to eat as pieces or grated in soups, pasta dishes , omelettes.
You can make pancakes for breakfast (250gr flour, 3 eggs, 500 ml milk, 1 tbl of oil, 1 pinch of salt).
Enriched soy and almond milk can be alternatives to look into.
Your feeding schedule is fine, and my kids were the same, no snacks. What is she eating?
@LeGrandBleu thank you sooo much! Especially for the pancake receipe. Will be making that tomorrow morning. Will go hunting for that cheese too!
She eats porridge , eggs, salmon, pastry with mince, different soup. Basically any finger food she will try. If she likes it she can eat quiet a bit and if she doesn’t she won’t eat and I end up making her porridge. Can’t seem to get her to eat different vegatables. She loved it at around 6 months. Pureed. Then I stopped doing that and she stopped eating. Started puring vegatables again just so she eats it but she won’t have it.
Don't fall into the trap of offering porridge if she doesn't eat her meals, especially the baby porridge so fun of sugar.
Keep doing what you are doing giving her real food that tastes nice. Maybe try cooking vegetables that are actually delicious. Oven roasted zucchini for example is a big winner (turn oven 210 degrees fan forced and grill , slice as thin as possible lengthwise the zucchini, put on oven tray covered in baking paper, put slices one to the other without overlapping, brush each with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, put in oven but keep a close eye as they burn easily. When they start browning , they are ready) or slices of pumping with garlic, rosemary and olive oil.
Keep offering the veggies, preparing them in different way, roasted, braised, dressed with oil and salt, if possible, with the exception of peas, buy fresh as the taste is so much better than frozen.
In France the fish more often given to kids is the sole, which is stupid easy to prepare, a generous knob of butter in the pan, place the skinless sole in it when it sizzles, turn after 3-4 minutes (it should be a bit brown) and after 4 more minutes, place in a plate. Delicately with a spoon you can pull the flesh from the bones, put in a clean plate and pour some of the butter from the pan.
As she likes soup, make plenty, especially now that winter is coming. Pumpkin soup is stupid easy (peel pumpkin, I like Kent and usually use half of 1, cut into cubes, add 3 carrot, 1 small onion, and just enough water to cover the veggies, put a lid and on the stove for 40 min at low flame once it boils, blend with the water, it is a cream) .
A lovely Italian minestrone, the Spanish garbanzo soup, the French ham and peas, go berserk with soups.
