My toddler does nothing but eat! Hes 18 months old this week and eats alot more then I do. He is going to big when he grows up. Was measured today at 97cms and around 16kgs (very solid, stocky build). His typical menu is:
Breakfast- bowl of porriage, yoghurt and fruit, 150mls milk
Morning tea- fruit/fruit smoothie plus biscuit or mini savoury muffins
Lunch- Bowl of vege (spinach, sweet potato, pumpkin, corn, broccoli etc) mixed with tuna or chicken. Or sandwiches or baked beans
Afternoon Tea- piece of fruit or raffertys banana bar
Dinner- More vege with some brown rice mixed in, plus whatever meat I am eating that night. He then steals at least half of my dinner and have another 150mls of milk. Tonight he had custard as well.
I give him unlimited water during the day
He woke up at 1am last night wanting more food! Im trying to bulk up his meals with some carbs to fill him up. Hes not fat at all! But I dont want to overfeed him. He is an extremely active boy. What is everyone elses toddler eating around this age? Do they have a growth spurt about now?
