    Default 7 month old - what's on the menu?

    Interested in what everyone is feeding their LO's around 7mo? For ideas! Not so much after opinions or judgment on peoples choices. Our daily meal plan is something like this..

    Breakfast - Bellamys porridge with formula and purée pear or apple

    Lunch - Fruit (apple, pear or banana) with natural yoghurt

    Dinner - vegies (carrot, pumpkin, sweet potato, broccoli) sometimes with puréed chicken or beef. Cous cous has recently been added.

    6mo here, but:

    Breakfast - some veggies and the fruit with natural yoghurt (thismorning had apple and dates blended together then mixed with the yoghurt) OR half an avocado and one banana mixed together - his favourite

    Lunch - veggies and then some fruit

    Afternoon tea/snack (more to develop interest in food and motor skills) - chunks of watermelon, rockmelon, carrot, cheese, capsicum - anything really!

    Dinner - veggies and steamed chicken/beef mince then fruit for dessert

    We'll be trying eggs on the weekend.

    Default 7 month old - what's on the menu?

    Nearly 8 months and blw.

    Breakfast - either some of my porridge, banana pancake (banana mashed and mixed with egg then fried) or ricotta and spinach pancake (ricotta, egg and sliced baby spinach mixed and fried) or plain banana. Have tried scrambled eggs but he wasn't keen. Sometimes homemade wholemeal banana and blueberry muffins.

    Lunch - often wholemeal toast with avocado spread on, some of my quesadilla if that's what I'm having, home made chicken nuggets, mini quiches or sausage rolls or if I'm feeling lazy some cut up veg and cheese slices or steamed frozen veg.

    Dinner - whatever were having, lamb chops, rice, mash, salad, steak, chicken. Whatever really.

    Snacks (which isn't every day) - cut oranges, strawberries, homemade yogurt with frozen blueberries or frozen blueberries on there own (his favourite - he had 10 after dinner last night!) sliced avocado or tomato. Whatever really!!

    We did BLW here too.
    At 7mths bub was having tastes from our plates at meal times
    Breakfast - after milk feed, Toast
    Lunch - After milk feed, bit of sandwich, piece of pasta, piklet, raw carrots dipped in hummus (he just sucked the hummus off) and some chunky poached fruit.
    Dinner - Whatever we were having - bit of meat, vege, rice, cous cous. I put some bits on his tray and he would just help himself and make a mess of it. Poached fruit afterwards.

    DS is 9mths now and eats family meals and snacks inbetween like yoghurt, banana bread, cheese, cruskits with cream cheese, ricotta pikelets, custard, hard boiled egg, cheese and chive mini muffin, date scone, raisin bread. He eats anything, really.
    Milk feed before bed at 7ish.

    8 months here

    Breakky - scrambled eggs usually

    Snack- fruit

    Lunch - avocado sandwich or leftovers from dinner or if I've made a zucchini slice or something he will have that.

    Snack - hm muffins or crackers or whatever's in the fridge

    Dinner - whatever we are having. Last night was steak and veg. I just steamed his veg a little longer and cut up his steak into small squares. Night before was chicken, veg and rice with hm satay sauce.
    I usually fill his bowl up and put it in front if him. He just absolutely goes to town on it, basically inhales it and half ends up on the floor lol

    Bottle after breakky, mid arvo and before bed at night. He still wakes at 1am for a bottle.
