The reason I'm asking is that I'm going to be away in a travel lodge for 2 nights and obviously won't have access to freezer and all DSs food in my freezer! He is just over 12 months old but hates jars of savoury as has had homemade all his weaned life! Just wondered if it might get me out of a hole while I'm away? That or any other thoughts would be gratefully recieved! He will eat sweet/fruit jars which is how I have jars that I could reuse
Anyone got any ideas on how to get through 2 days away like this?
Please help before i lose my mind!! My nearly 2 yr old will hardly eat a thing - a full meal has never passed hi slips...he just say NO!!! and then screams, often until he is sick!!! All he will eat are yoghurts and pretzels, with the odd piece of apple or water melon! He loves milk and we water skimmed milk down so as not to fill him up! This doesn't work!! he is a really happy boy and it doesn't seem to bother him...although he wakes up several times a night and im sure this is due to hunger. We constantly put new foods in front of him and always eat as a family..nothing seems to help! We have recently added vitamins to his milk because we are worried he is not getting the nutrients he needs. Has anyone got any top tips or ideas to help me. Im so worried about him. many thanks x
Abudhabi if your DS likes milk then don't water it down, use Whole milk. It has a lot of nutrients and vitamins already so it's pointless to water down milk and add vits. I only have a one year old who loves milk and is a reluctant eater, but I don't think they starve themselves, so probably a good idea to relax about his intake, keep offering at mealtimes and he will join in eventually. Is he well otherwise? Energetic etc?
At 12 months my kids were just eating what we eat.
In fact I remember at the end if my mat leave going to stay with my DH who was working away for a few weeks in a hotel and just buying DS stuff off the kids menu. He would have been less than 12 months then.
I don't think I'd freeze stuff in glass jars, it may shatter with the change in temperature. If you really want to give purees you can get good plastic tubs in poundland cheaply or a few bought jars are not going to harm them.
OP - why can't he eat whatever you will be eating? We went on holiday for a week when DS1 was 10 months old and he ate in restaurants with us - the only things I took away with us were a few snacks so that I had something portable for in between meals when we out and about.
You can freeze glass jars (I've done that with glass Hipp jars, no prob, no breakage) but they certainly usually won't reseal - that would need some way of forming a vacuum and freezing is not sufficient for that. So if you take your frozen jars out and keep them in the car for more than a couple of hours, the food will spoil unless you are able to re-refrigerate it quickly.
