Following breakfast, he gets one 'full' meal per day (usually lunch) and a lighter meal (usually dinner).

For his light meal I have been doing:

eggy bread
cheese sandwich
cream cheese and grape sandwich
baked beans

but need more inspiration / suggestions for variety....

I gave ds pasta twirls with pesto at this age, which he loved!

Potatoes,carrots and cheese, mushed up with a bit of butter.
Baby pasta and pesto or tom sauce
Burghul or couscous with tom sauce or vegetables (salad type chopped up very small.
Rice with some meat/gravy (always saved some gravy from our roast for this sort of thing)
Fruit puree and thick youghurt

Great thread HMC - shall watch this with interest, and may try your suggestions, although mine still chokes on bread and scrambled eggs at mo!

He likes sucking skinless apple chunks and biscotti - so far that's all I can seem to manage to get him to eat other than totally mushed up dinner!

Hoummous/avocado on bread

Hey goreous girl! How are you. Where have you been?

Hi Moondog - feeling vv unsociable and tired at mo - allowing myself to wallow (?) in misery at mo, until I have one good nights sleep and manage to pull my socks up again!!

Another fan of pasta mixed with pesto. DD loved it and it's a great one for taking out and about too. Sometimes mix cream cheese in with the pesto too.

Also - DD also loved banana on toast, especially if I ate it with her off a 'real' plate. Another big favourite in our house (still is to be honest) is avocado. DD will eat a whole one in one go just cut up into chunks.

Sorry to hear that goreous girl.

Thanks some good suggestions here that hadn't previously occurred to me, and I will be trying out....

Thanks for starting this thread. We have an 18 month old who is still very reluctant to try table food. I'm hoping one of these will tempt him.

Thinking this might even help me with the problem I have (posted a bit later)

Gina Ford says cut up boiled egg - vv messy though!

moondog Tue 08-Feb-05 14:31:16

Jabberwocky..table food?! As opposed to what exactly!?
Goreous girl,no offence but do any of us need GF to impart info as basic as this??

Tinned mackerel on toast (all those omega thingies!!)
Cheese on toast with guacamole to dip

big breadsticks with veg purees or dips - any combination

lightly cooked big carrot sticks

cheesey pasta

Any big florets cooked veg, broccoli or cauliflour

potato wedges baked in oven with olive oil

if they can't manage to eat it all, they can have a good suck and get a lot of it down. Basically anything that is easy to hold, is big and soft.

Potato cakes (leftover mash, flour and buter baked in oven)
Homemade mini fishcakes or chicken nuggets - make up lots, fry then freeze. You can then put them frozen in the oven to warm through. I serve these with microwaved peas/sweetcorn which ds loves to pick up.
