    Default What does your one year old eat? Food routine

    Hi just wondering what your twelve month old daily eating routine is like?
    When do they eat?
    What do they eat?
    How much do they eat?

    My daughter is currently

    6am. 120ml cows milk and breakfast (one piece of toast or cereaL with fruit)

    9am. Snack (like small tub yoghurt or a banana)

    12pm. Lunch (like mini quiches)

    2.30pm. Snack (like 2 arrowroot biscuits)

    5pm. Dinner (meat/veg/carb) small bowl.

    6pm 200ml formula

    Not sure if giving her enough portion size?

    My son is 13 months ad eats roughly the same as you've listed. I'd be happy with that!! Good routine.

    Sounds good but I would be adding more fruit and vegetables and losing the biscuits.

    16 months

    7am-ish
    breakfast, home-made grated apple & cinnamon porridge with teaspoon of honey (portion size is about half of mine - we eat the same thing because I like to make one meal not two!)

    9:30/10am
    morning tea, usually fruit and cheese or some yoghurt

    12/1pm
    lunch, leftovers or avo & olive oil / ham & cheese / vegemite on a slice of bread

    3/4pm
    afternoon tea, "tea" (1/3 of a mug of milk with some hot water) and a marie biscuit

    6pm-ish
    dinner, most nights like you do - meat/veg/carb - some nights no meat, just pasta or rice & veg... last night he ate a side plate of a mince dish (mince, tomato paste, borlotti beans, zucchini, spinach, peas, onion, garlic, topped with grated parmesan) - ate the lot, but he doesn't always do that,if he's had a lot to eat during the day, or is ill, he eats less or not at all.

    On the days he has milk he will sometimes spew up, so I don't give it to him all the time. Not sure if there's an issue there.

    And still gets boob before bed, in the morning, and before some naps.

    Ds2 is 1 in 2 weeks.
    Breakfast at 8 half a tub of yoghurt or farax 8+ cereal.
    Morning tea booby and a rusk or bread stick.
    Lunch half a sandwich quarter of an apple or pear and a prune.
    Doesn't eat it all but has a good go.
    Afternoon tea booby and fruit.
    Dinner is what we eat but mostly steamed veg and a few pieces of meat or pasta.
    I don't think he eats as much as that sounds though. He is still under 8kg.

    My DD is 1 this week. She eats:

    8am Breakfast - 1 small bowl baby porridge with prunes, handful Cheerios and a few pieces of my toast.

    11am Morning Tea - 200ml Formula before nap

    1pm Lunch - Half a sandwich or 1 Scrambled egg with veg, yoghurt or cheese, Fruit

    5-6ish Dinner - Meat, Veg, Carb, 1 small baby bowl, Fruit, Crackers

    8pm - 200-250ml Formula before bed

    Plus water is offered at every meal and through the day. She won't usually eat all of it and sometimes she hardly eats any of it. I don't think she eats enough but she seems to be putting on enough weight.

    Dd is 12 months in 2 weeks.
    She pretty much eats bugger all lol
    Every lunch and dinner I try to put out something new on her tray, she always nibbles a little but then I give her the usuals which I know she'll usually eat (refuses to be spoon fed)
    630 bf
    8 - slice of vegemite toast and a small handful Cheerios soaked in milk
    Small bf before nap
    No snack for morning tea now as she naps 10-1130
    Lunch is usually a cruskit with cheese spread, with either 1 scrambled egg (eats about 1/4), small amount mac and cheese or 1/2 banana
    Bf before nap
    Arvo snack milk arrowroot biscuit (she loves these) or a very small slice watermelon or 1/3 banana
    Dinner - try and give her veggies- eg some roast pumpkin, potato and sweet potato, with a chicken nugget or fish finger, she just nibbles at these them they end up on the floor. She'll eat a pouch of yogurt.
    During our dinner a little later she'll eat a baby rice cracker or two, or some baby puffs.
    Bf before bed.

    My 12.5 month old is obsessed with food. Nobody can eat anything around him without him demanding some!

    A usual day is:

    5am: breastfeed
    7am: one weetbix with cows milk or porridge with half slice toast
    10.30: fruit eg rock melon, apple, watermelon
    12: lunch, frittata of one egg with grated carrot, zucchini & cheese or baked beans with cheese toast & steamed carrots. Scoffs the lot.
    3: huge serve natural yoghurt. Small serve fruit such as handful blueberries.
    5: whatever we have for dinner plus peas & corn. This is his favourite meal & he smashes everything. Sometimes has fruit for dessert, tonight he had a fig.
    6.30: breastfeed or small serve cows milk.

    He's an animal! But he's an average size, just shy of 12kg.
