How much "should" a 17 mth old girl be eating for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between ? and should she still be having 500 ml of milk a day ? my daughter is still having 225 ml before her 11H00 nap and again at 19H00 before her bedtime is that to much ?

after 1 year o f age 12 oz of milk a day is fine

dont forget this INCLUDES milk in cooking / on cereal / in yogurts cheese etc

but 500mls a day doesnt sound excessive as long as she eats 'enogh'

as for what she 'should eat' there is a HUGE variation in what normal 17 month olds eat...

as long as she eats a varied diet and is growing normally you shouldnt worry!
