At 12 months, little ones should essentially be eating the same foods as the rest of the family - with some exceptions. If she is able to manage foods that need biting and chewing, she can enjoy most of the same meals that you have yourself – including pasta, rice dishes, roasts, homemade pizzas and hamburgers, stir fry, casseroles etc. It may be time to move from ‘baby’ foods with only one or two tastes at a time, to meals with a variety of flavours and textures.
The major exceptions are that you will probably need to give your daughter only small pieces of meat and perhaps stick to foods that aren’t too spicy. Also avoid small hard foods such as nuts and hard raw vegetables. Fish is fine so long as it is without the bones – even try tinned fish.
The same guidelines apply to Christmas time. If you are having roast meat and vegetables, give her this with smaller tender pieces of meat. If you are having a cold lunch, she can have a variety of salads (again take out any nuts or hard raw vegetables) and some cold ham or chicken. Just remember that little ones do not need to eat ‘a lot’ for Christmas (as many adults do!) let her tell you when she has had enough, and beware of well-meaning friends and family who may want to feed her too much!
Finally, she should enjoy a small bit of her chocolate birthday cake! - so long as you have already checked that she is fine to have ingredients such as eggs and milk.
