Ok... so my son is 11 months old. He LOVES food, and has no allergies so far!! :-)
My question is, should he be self feeding heaps now??
At the moment, this is what he eats:
Breakfast: Cereal or porridge + fruit
Option 1:Toast with no crusts -topped with cheese, avocado, cottage cheese, cream cheese or whatever else. (These are usually the main options though!) + yoghurt
Option 2: Egg mashed up (spoon fed) with bite size veggies for self feeding + yoghurt or fruit
Option 3: Pasta with cheese and veggies (self feeding) + fruit and/or yoghurt
Option 1: Chicken and veggies (finger food) + fruit
Option 2: Spaghetti bolognese with veggies grated in (Spoon fed) + fruit
Option 3: Rice with lentils and veggies (spoon fed) + fruit
I'm still giving him toast as he only has his bottom 2 teeth and he still kinda chokes a bit on the toast... so not sure that I should give him plain bread yet, as in a sandwich.
I read on another post tonight that some people give their 11 month olds sticks of soft veggies or bread to dip into cottage cheese. Should I be encouraging my son to do these things too??
Also, when do you give ham??? Is it too early, or can I give it to him now?
And what about salad type food like lettuce? I would think that cucumber would be 'down the track' food given chock-ability factor.
Would love some feedback!!
