Both my DDs (aged 2 and 9 months) eat their lunch around 1pm (the toddler later if she has a long day sleep)!
With both of them it is just how it has worked around their feeds. DD1 is happy to eat at this time, and she eats breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks in between if she so desires. She doesn't ask for lunch any earlier then this and is more than happy to eat at that time. Also, she is not a big eater and sometimes can be extremely fussy.
Most others I know give their children lunch around 11/1130ish and sometimes I get strange looks or asked why I feed them so late, LOL...
So, my question is, I guess, am I alone, or are there other 'late' eaters out there?

What time does your baby/toddler eat lunch?

DS 13 months has lunch anytime from 12.30 - 2.30 depending on how long he sleeps during the day. He will have a mid morning snack sometimes if his nap isn't going to be until late morning.

anywhere between 1 and 2 depending on what time she woke up that morning and if she had a morning snack

Same as you - usually around 1-1:30. They go to bed too early for lunch (10-10:30 but sleep for a while.

I voted 1230-2 but Im thinking now it depends on a number of things.
What time they got up/had breakfast, if they had morning tea, if were out..
Usually sometime between 1130-1230 and In bed for a nap between 1-2 pm.

I chose 11:00am - 12:30pm, but it depends on a lot of things: whether he is hungry then, if he got up early, when he has his nap... DS isn't in much of a structured routine, so he wakes up any time between 6am and 8:30am. The later he wakes, the later his lunch. He always has his nap after lunch.

i have 2 DD's one is 19months and the other is 3. the 3 year old eats at about 12 because she doesn't have a morning sleep and the 19month old eats around 2 becuase she has a sleep from 11-2 and 11 is too early to eat lunch when shes had brekky at 8 and morning tea at 10 so she then has lunch at 2 afternoon tea at 3.30 and dinner at 6. its just the way it works out here there is occasions that she eats at 12 if we have been out all morning and she is hungry before her sleep

DD doesnt really sit down for lunch. she grazes throughout the day and eats well but she always has alot for breakfast and a decent dinner then probably has fruit and cheeses and nice things like that throughout the day.

DD is 8.5 months and has lunch 12:30 - 13:00. We generally stick to that as well. =)
