hope you make enough for you as well - sounds yum

maybe some fruit or veg sticks?

It is quite heavy on the dairy and low on fruit/veg. But if you balance it out and give him some veg at teatime it should be OK.

tea is veg and lentil puree and maybe some toast...

thanks

sounds a good balance across the day then.

I would add some bread or something starchy, but if you are offering that at tea time then it sounds Ok.

A nice little salad of cucumber, carrot sticks, tomato and sweetcorn. Lovely!

i'd stick loads of veg into the omelette, peas, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, anything you've got to hand - it's a great way to get veg into them!

Sannie can your 9 month old really eat a 2 egg omelette! envy. I have a real struggle to get DS 15 months to even eat 1 scrambled egg and that's without anything else.

a 9mo who has just discovered food can woof it down, as they get past one their little bodies slow down in the growing so they don't really need as much(most of the time)

i found a good way to add a bit more veg was to add it grated to the food. my lo has a home made pizza every week which he loves and we make the topping from grated veg and cheese which goes down very well.
