What does a typical day look like eating-wise for your one year old? I'm not sure my bub is getting enough food in the day so wanted to check in with other mums to see what and how much their bubs are consuming.

What's your 1 year old eating?
07-03-2014 14:21 #2
My daughter just turned 1. She's a bit off her food today as she's not well but a typical day looks like this:
Breakfast - 1 weetbix, 1 banana, handful of blueberries
Morning tea - homemade fruit muffin or biscuits
Lunch - vegetable fritter, fish fingers / chicken or beef rissoles, sometimes more fruit or cheese sticks
Afternoon tea - yogurt
Dinner - whatever we're having, if we have pasta she'll have close to an adult sized serving, anything else she totals maybe 1/2 cup of food. She tends not to be a big dinner eater.
We're in the process of weaning her off her bottles so she's only been having a cup of milk with meals (which she rarely drinks) and a 150ml bottle before bed at night

My DS is 13 mo. A typical day is
If up before 6:30 I give a bottle if not he has porridge with dates for breakfast
Cruskits w avocado and some fruit for morning tea.
Sleep for 1.5 hrs
Yogurt on waking
Sandwich and fruit (strawberries cherry tomatoes etc) for lunch
Sleep for 2.5 hrs
Sultanas/muesli bar on waking
Dinner usually pasta or rice with veg and meat
Bottle then bed.
Some days eats more, others less
At the same age my DD at about half the amount DS does

Hi - here's an average day for my 1yr old DS.
Breakfast: he really only likes eggs (usually 2 scrambled), but i'm not cooking eggs everyday!! He will eat dry cereal or porridge with maple syrup and a little cup of my smoothie. Breakfast is a pain.
Morning tea: cheese stick or yoghurt and fruit, then he has a bottle before his nap.
Lunch: sandwich/toasted sandwich boiled, eggs or baked beans on toast, a plate of different bits & pieces (ham, salad etc).
Afternoon tea: he doesn't really eat much here- maybe some sultans or fruit (which he will usually drop everywhere) a biscuit or rice/corn thin with avo or something. I find afternoon tea hard too.
Dinner: whatever we are eating. Most of the time he eats more than his 3yr old brother (if he like what I have cooked)!!

My DS is now 2.5yrs and is eating a bit more but when he was 1, he was, quite literally, only eating 5 blueberries a day (he was still b/feeding as well - maybe a tad too much?).
I started a few threads on here as I was also worried that he wasn't eating enough. Slowly but surely, he's now increased the amount he eats - he also loves a wide variety of things and is willing to give anything a go.
I think as long as you are offering healthy options throughout the day and your bubs is drinking well, having wet nappies, is happy and isn't losing weight then you are on the right track.
Best wishes :-)

Breastfeed when she wakes up
Breakfast about 2 hrs later usually vegemite and cheese toast (her fave, give her anything else for breaky and shes devo)
Lunch - usually a cruskit with avocado or cream cheese, some fruit and yogurt
Dinner - first I give her some vegies, if I give her everything at once she wont touch them. Then some of whatever I've cooked (she eats what I eat) then she'll have a little serve of cheese.
Breastfeed before bed.
Reading everyone elses replies has me wondering if Im feeding her enough...I dont generally give her snacks yet because she would rather bf and if I give her snacks she wont eat her meals
