A friend of mine has a 10 month old baby and is afraid that she may be over eating. The health visitor says she is a healthy weight but she always seems to be eating. Are there any tips i can give her ? Many thanks.

Babies are pretty good at self-regulating their intake. They usually stop when they've had enough. Your friend could look at the type and variety of food her baby gets, perhaps. Some foods are more filling and sustaining than others, for example. Anything with a high protein and fat content is quite satisfying and things like bananas are very filling. Obviously milk is still a big part of baby's diet at this age....
