Can I ask how much your 1 year old eats?

DD is almost 1 and we're just about to change her diet by dropping one of her three bottles and increasing food. She's on the 98th centile for both weight and height, so she's not small! I've been thinking she might be getting hungrier recently so I'm a bit confused as the how much she should be having.

Just trying to gauge what others are doing as I'm feeling a bit lost!

Haven't got a one year old anymore but at one you can swap the milk over to cows milk and offer food before solids smile

My 13 month old is a big eater I think, also 98 percentile
BF morning and night.
Water in cup offered all day.
2 cups of milk during day.

porridge with fruit or toast

Mid morning yogurt

Egg on toast, or beans on toast, or jacket potato and cheese
Fruit pot

Mid afternoon
Crackers with dairy lea cheese

Home made Potato wedges usually about 6
Broccoli and sweetcorn

Or curry and rice

11. (about 60th percentile) eats...

Breakfast - 6oz bottle, then an hour later one Weetabix or similar amount of museli and cow's milk

Lunch - equivalent of those 7mo+ jars of stew/casserole, a fromage frais, and a plum or two

Early afternoon - 4oz bottle

Late afternoon - some raisins or half a banana

Dinner - cream cheese sandwich or cheese on toast or a couple of little fishcakes, a few peas or some cauli, and a banana or peach etc

Bedtime - 6oz bottle

We're also trying to drop the afternoon bottle but we're just gradually dropping all the bottles in size so that soon we'll just do 5-6oz in the morning and at bedtime. It is hard to judge though! I think it might just be a case of upping the 'snacks' in the afternoon to gradually replace the milk.

I have a nearly 11 month old

She has early morning breastfeed around 6am

Breakfast is either baby fruity cereal and yoghurt, toast and philly plus fruit or porridge with raisins or pear.

Mid morning feed (but is starting to drop this and the nap)

Lunch - cheese on toast and salad, cooked veg and chicken or fish, stews, fruit or yoghurt pud

Mid afternoon - banana biscuit/rice cake and another breastfeed for nap time

Dinner - whatever we are having minus salt

Posted too soon, then breastfed on demand so bedtime feed plus as many nightime feeds (3 on average).

I have a 14mo DD, also 98th percentile, with a big appetite!

Today was fairly typical:
Breakfast: porridge with cow's milk
Snack: fruit toast
Lunch: bean/spring onion/cheese jacket potato and a peach
After nap: 5 oz milk and a few mini rice cakes
Dinner: fish pie and yoghurt

She has water throughout the day.

Oh, and 5 oz at bedtime.

Thank you so much everyone, it's really helped.

yosaffbridge we've been thinking that with the snacks, it's just when to fit them in! We were quite lucky when we dropped her bottles when we first started weaning her as she was teething so went off them anyway. It's a whole different matter now that she expects her bottle at a certain time!

13 mo DD:
Breakfast: cereal with Cows' milk; a slice of toast if still hungry
Snack (about 10:30): banana or blueberries or toast or sometimes a (half) biscuit
Lunch (12-1 ish): bread (a roll), cheese, soup; fruit or yoghurt if still hungry
Snack (about 3:30) as morning snack
Dinner (about 6:30): whatever we're having - sometimes things we don't eat!!

Drinks with all the above are usually fruit juice, but I'm trying to encourage more milk (she doesn't like it from a cup much hmm).
