How do we know if bub is getting enough food? 1 years old.

I think one year olds need about 800-1000 calories a day. But I don't think that's a good way to calculate it. Some days they might barely eat anything and others they might shovel down the food. Toddler nutrition is best looked at over an entire week I think, as they are notoriously fussy.
What makes you think she's not getting enough? I'm not sure how to gauge if they're getting enough, but I'm sure someone else can help with that. I'm a big believer in the idea that toddlers won't starve themselves (in the absence of any medical conditions).
If you're worried, perhaps try some high calorie food e.g avocado, add ground seed mix (I use linseeds, pepitas and sunflower seeds) to yogurt, cheese. Smoothies are a great way to get nutrients in too.
