On a regular day, what is it that you feed your kids? ( 1yrs and up)

[deleted account] ( 101 moms have responded )

So this isnt really a debate but if it turns into one then thats cool :)

I just think its interesting to get a look into other peopls lives and see how they do things. I apologize if this has been done before but I'm still going to ask. On any given day what does your kid eat?? Are you one of those really strict vegetarians?? Do you have an only organic food policy in your household? Or are you laid back and whatever you have is whatever they eat??

This is what my daughter ate today:

Breakfast: cheerios and scrambled eggs with whole milk

Snack : A piece of her birthday cake

Lunch: cheerios and fideo ( she didnt really eat lunch, i think she is going thru a growth spurt or something cuz she just went down for another nap)

Dinner: fideo, beans, cheerios, a piece of birthday cake for dessert and orange juice.

So everyday she eats different things i usually think she gets a variety of everything. So I guess im more of the laid back type when it comes to food. What about you?

My oldest is almost 3. Normally for breakfast she eats cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes or fruit. for lunch she has things like mac n cheese, PB&J, turkey sandwich, leftovers from night before, raviolis or things like such. For dinner she just has whatever i make. ex: spaghetti, tacos, baked chicken mashed potatoes and veggies, chili...etc. her snack is usually a fruit or veggie, goldfish or graham crackers or something like such. she usually drinks milk, water or juice(i still highly dilute her juice. about 5/6 water and 1/6 juice or 1/4 juice and 3/4 water. a lot depends on how much she's had to drink.) I like for her to have variety but also want her to eat at least semi healthy. She loves fruits and veggies so she eats one or the other at pretty much every meal and also at snacks.

I'm obsessed about getting my kids to eat veggies so I try to make sure they eat lots for dinner. I haven't persuaded anybody to eat veggies for breakfast and lunch so far though!

My 9 year old boy loves carbs and will eat porridge and toast and rice bubbles and more toast for breakfast, while my 6 year old daughter barely wants any breakfast at all. How can they differ so much?!

Our evening meals rotate between spag bol, quiche, veggie burritos, lamb stew, fried rice, chicken curry... but all these dishes have lots of veggies hidden in them.

Well my 6 year old actually remembered that my husband and I had told her she can't go out and play until she had breakfast so she had peaches and cream oatmeal. She also has cold cereal or pancakes (the kind you actually have to make).

Lunch today was a turkey sandwhich with lettuce cheese and cucumber from the cafeteria at my husband's school because we were there for some paperwork and she was hungry.

It's only 1:32pm PST so I don't know if she's having a snack at her friends or not. Dinner tonight will be Speggeti with ground pork meatballs.

We vary each day. usually for lunch she has chicken noodle soup or Peanutbutter and Jelly. She can't have PB&J at school though because there are a few kids with peanut allergies and they've banned anything peanut.

It depends on the day. Most days for breakfast my 3yr does not eat breakfast and has a cup of whole milk sometimes yogurt. (We don't usually get up now until 10 or 11am due to me being pregnant hahha). Lunch was tuna fish at Penn Station, and dinner will whatever I decide to find in the kitchen. I know I have ground turkey thawed. lol He eats what we normally give him now :D

I am definutly a laid back Mommy. I work so I will try to add in () what she would eat on a normal day at my Mom's house as well if it's different. Don't want to scare anyone but my family has very fast metabolisms so be warned! lol.
My daughter is 2 1/2 years old.
We both have acid reflux and therefore do not eat right after waking since it can make reflux worse throughout the day. About 1-2 hours after waking she is ready to start eating.
Breakfast : two normal sized pancakesabout 6" in diameter, with maple or all natural berry syrup, an egg over hard and toast with either pb or butter & j usually just one piece. Then whole milk to drink. no more than 12 oz. (she would also get bacon with her breakfast at my mom's)
1 hour or less later
Morning snack : String cheese, 1-2 gogurts, watered down juice or straight water
1-2 hours later
Lunch : Ham and cheese sandwich on honey wheat bread, green beans, I give her fruit like oranges or an apple as well but she doesn't finish it. (grandma and grandpa make her cheeseburgers and home made french fries often for lunch or hot dogs she eats 3! or her fav wedding soup)
2 hours later
Afternoon snack : 1 gogurt, a veggie usually she picks green beans, crackers or cereal
2 hours later
Dinner : steak cut in small bites about 8oz or so, spinach her favorite, real mashed potatoes and gravy only 1 scoop, watered down juice or just water to drink.
2-3 hours later
Evening snack : usually she has a whole grain cereal and 12oz of milk including whats in the cereal.
she may have another snack just before bed of crackers if she had her evening snack too early. She eats on demand so times vary a little.
She weights 26lbs and is 36" tall. She eats a ton, plus she eats chocolate kisses all day for good behavor or using the potty. Makes me scared for when she is a teenager!!

@Maria he gets SUPER hyper, wont listen, it almost like when a child has adhd and they are out of control...yeah thats how he acts. his Doctor said it was a food allergy, but to what we still aren't sure

[deleted account]

My son just turned 1 and mostly breastfeeds. Mid-morning, he usually has oatmeal with a bit of ground flax, with scrambled eggs or plain yogurt, and a vegetable (peas, green beans, parsnips are current favorites) and fruit.



He has a taste of our lunch/dinner if it's healthy. He's had meat, tofu, fish, pasta, whatever.



But I can't get him to eat dry foods. If I offer cheerios or a tiny sandwich, he acts disgusted.



On his birthday, he was offered cake but he spat it out. :P (He's had virtually no sweets in his life, so I guess it was a shock to get chocolate cake.)

I am definitely a laid back kinda mom, as long as they are eating healthy I don’t really have an issue with what they eat. But for my middle son I have to be a bit more careful, he cant have red apples, still unsure why that is, or red fruit punch or apple juice. And milk is very big in our house hold.

It changes every day, depends on what we're doing. Usually porridge with a bit of honey for breakfast, although if I'm at work his Dad will feed him cereal or toast. Morning/afternoon tea/snacks is usually fruit, may be a few crackers, sometimes I make pikelets or healthyish cakes. Lunch a sandwich, or something else. About once a week baked beans which he loves. Dinner whatever we're eating. If he's still hungry after dinner fruit and yoghurt. And.....
boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs boobs
I swear sometimes he feeds as much as a newborn (he's 2) although on my workdays he goes without no problem.

I'd love to say all our food is organic but it isn't - some things are like the yoghurt I get for him. I only get meat from our local butcher and I try to stay away from processed stuff in general, make most of our bread etc.

We have a ton of food allergies with our first, which really affects our eating habits for the most part. My older one is 2.5 and my younger one is 16 months.

Breakfast - a handful of dry cheerios (to keep them quiet while I cook) and Multigrain toast with homemade jam/honey. After breakfast they get their milk (soy milk for #1, Cows milk for #2)

Snack- A fruit - usually 2 bananas (they each eat one) and a graham cracker.

Lunch - Half a sandwich each (meat and veganaise on multigrain bread) and fruit and crackers or something else crunchy (they love melba toast).

Snack - crackers/fruit or teddy grahams if i'm being lazy.

Dinner - Meat (either chicken or pork) and vegetables. #1 is super picky but she eats whats in front of her or she goes hungry, #2 will eat pretty much anything and usually finishes off her sisters plate when theres leftovers.

Before bed they get their milk again. Between other meals they get VERY watered down juice (100% juice in an approx 1:6 ratio)

We all eat the same thing for dinner for the most part, unless i'm having a day like today where I've been eating the "forbidden" foods because i'm craving everything that #1 is allergic to. The allergies we are dealing with for #1 are peanuts, dairy, egg, beef, sesame and at the moment #2 only gets "forbidden" foods on occasion because her hands are everywhere and food gets everywhere that she'll need a bath before going anywhere near her sister which makes it complicated. When she is about 3 or so, we'll start to teach her to clean up properly after eating those foods, because now if she has cheese or yougurt, even if we wash her down after, if she picks up the wrong juice cup and puts her mouth on it, we get a lovely ambulance ride to the hospital along with about 300$ worth of expenses not including missed work, and cheese and yougurt and peanut butter just aren't THAT worth it..

Seriously. COM is 'working'? on these problems? I have to scroll all the way down the page because there is no go to last post option. The links to the page numbers aren't at the top anymore either. It's taking forever to read these threads. According to them, this is a 'user-friendly' layout.

I don't think they care about us participating in discussions. I think they just want us to spend more time looking at their ads in the margins as we struggle to get to the end of the discussion. :P

My toddler is going through that phase where he eats like a bird, so it really depends on the day. But here's a "typical" day:

Breakfast: Peanut butter on whole-wheat toast with a 1/2 cup of fruit on the side (pears, peaches, berries, that type of thing), and a sippy cup of milk.

Snack: yogurt. The kid loves yogurt. I buy him the organic stuff.

Lunch: usually some whole-wheat pasta with chicken and veg, or a grilled cheese sandwich, or whatever his sitter feels like making for him that day. More milk.

Snack: usually a cereal bar and some raisins or dried cranberries.

Supper: whatever we're having. We buy 90% of our meat from the farm just down the road, so we have nice, grass-fed free-range chicken (and eggs), pork, lamb and beef in the house. Supper can be as healthy as free-range chicken with quinoa and salad, or as unhealthy as a frozen pizza. It all depends on how busy my day is.

Vegetables are a struggle lately, but we persist.

And if he has a day where he's really just eating like a bird (he has a cold today, so he didn't want to eat any breakfast), then I do keep a tin of toddler formula available, and will mix that up along with some liquid multivitamin drops. No, it's not ideal, but at least SOME nourishment is getting into his belly.

Hmmm a typical day for my bottomless pit children?
Breakfast is normally cold cereal (oatmeal crisp or something of the like; warm oatmeal in the winter) usually followed within 30 mins by yogurt and/or a granola bar.
Then they snack on things like carrots, grapes, crackers, peanut butter (just peanut butter...on a spoon...weirdos)
For lunch either sandwiches (nothing too fancy, turkey and cheese, pb&j...) or some sort of noodle dish, with cucumbers and ranch.
Then more snacking...more yogurt, granola bars, apples, oranges, maybe some cookies if we have them...
Then supper is normally some form of chicken (be it breast or nugget lol) with veggies and cheese.
Then another snack before bed.
They drink water, milk, pure fruit juice, and V8 fusion juice throughout the day.
Oh and popcorn is also pretty popular around here.

[deleted account]

Because I've been out for a few days, I'll just answer the OP instead of picking up where this debate has left off.

Today was unusual, because my kid was at her grandparent's house. She had a frozen biscuit, egg, a hot dog, honey dew, dried cranberries, cheddar bunnies, and chicken nuggets. I'm not strict, expect in my own house. We only keep good food in our house.

A typical day at my house:
Breakfast: scrambled eggs, whole wheat toast with butter, fruit, watered down apple juice
Lunch: One of the following homemade options: chicken nuggets, mac n cheese, quesadillas, leftovers from supper
Snack: fruit or cheese
Supper: whatever I cook...always includes a meat, grain, and vegetable

I should probably add that the food I cook with would be considered whole foods...grass fed, free range, whole wheat, etc.

It's things like this that make the conspiracy theorist that lives in a tiny corner of my brain think that lobbying is involved with a lot of these decisions



Call ME a conspiracy theorist but I consider this a definite.



Yeah, bacteria contamination has to do with unsanitary conditions and poor handling procedures. Not just because something is raw.

[deleted account]

Yea i cant mark anyone's post either ( eg: helpful, funny, nice etc). thats really bothering me :/ haha but this has all been very interesting! Never knew most of this stuff and i like learning new things. I will stick to buying the grocery store 3.50 gallon milk but at least i know facts about it and the other milk selections.

"but I will never understand telling someone they can't milk their own cow and drink the milk. That's the government getting a little too into my business. What's next? Can't grow my own veggies because I might not clean them properly?"

Couldnt have said it better myself

People get sick from those same diseases all the time and it has nothing to do with raw milk. We had a listeria problem with a certain processed meat company a few years back. Lots of people got very ill. Far as I know, the government hasn't stepped in to tell us to stop eating deli meats. They might tell pregnant women to avoid it, but that's as far as it goes. They didn't shut down the ham business.

It's things like this that make the conspiracy theorist that lives in a tiny corner of my brain think that lobbying is involved with a lot of these decisions. The government seems so oddly selective about who they will and won't shut down.

Well, we can go back and forth about a multitude of subjects here. That's why we're in the debating forum :).

I'm not one to just do something because the government says so- a lot of their studies are biased. There is a HUGE impetus to push for industrialized milk.

I personally think that ultra pasteurized organic milk is very unsafe. The process of the pasteurization and homogenization render it quite toxic. Yes, raw milk has risks, I do not deny it, but so does commerical milk- commerical milk can be contaminiated with the whole list of your above bacteriums post-pasteurization and contains the health risks that develop from the processing afterwards.

Milk and milk products provide a wealth of nutrition benefits. But raw milk can harbor dangerous microorganisms that can pose serious health risks to you and your family. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 800 people in the United States have gotten sick from drinking raw milk or eating cheese made from raw milk since 1998.

Raw milk is milk from cows, sheep, or goats that has not been pasteurized to kill harmful bacteria. This raw, unpasteurized milk can carry dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria, which are responsible for causing numerous foodborne illnesses.

These harmful bacteria can seriously affect the health of anyone who drinks raw milk, or eats foods made from raw milk. However, the bacteria in raw milk can be especially dangerous to pregnant women, children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems.

Raw Milk and Serious Illness

Symptoms and Advice

Symptoms of foodborne illness include:

* Vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain
* Flulike symptoms such as fever, headache, and body ache

While most healthy people will recover from an illness caused by harmful bacteria in raw milk - or in foods made with raw milk - within a short period of time, some can develop symptoms that are chronic, severe, or even life-threatening.

http://www.fda.gov/Food/ResourcesForYou/...

We can go back and forth about this all day but really it is what you prefer at the end of the day and I prefer to only drink milk that has been pasteurized and not take the risk of Raw milk. However, I choose to do that by drinking organic milk which I think is a much safer alternative to both extremes.

Dyan NO this is what I was referring too "Except if you go back and look at all of the data, all of the reported illnesses linked to milk have been from industrial pasteurized homogonized milk." Which is not the truth all the data I have looked at were children and adults who drank raw milk.

sherri she's not saying it's not data from raw milk she's saying there's a HUGE difference from big industrial farms who keep their cows in piles of shit waist high, pumped with antibiotics cause they are fed grain. grains kills the cow cause they aren't made to eat grain. their stomachs are made for grass. the farmer has to continually pump antibiotics into them to undo what they just did to the animal.

if you take a grassfed cow who isn't surrounded by hundreds of other filthy sick cows, you dont' need antibiotics, you have less e-coli (another biproduct of giving a cow grain, their digestive system becomes a breeding ground for bacteria) and safer milk to give to people. i'd give my children raw grassfed milk over regular milk if i could find it.

Except if you go back and look at all of the data, all of the reported illnesses linked to milk have been from industrial pasteurized homogonized milk.

I'm sure that the government shunning raw milk wouldn't have ANYTHING to do with the huge stake that industrial milk production has in this.

Bacteria can be introduced into pasteurized milk at any point in the handling process afterwards. Raw milk from a local farm that goes directly from the cow (who lives in appropriate, not factory-farming conditions that breed illness) into a chilled holding tank is not unsafe.

I know a lot of raw milk drinkers here and around the world and they don't get sick from it. I think it's all blown out of proportion. I think it's probably pretty bad if the cows aren't clean and well-kept which is why I would not just take it from anywhere. And I still think no matter what if it's your cow, it's your milk. I can understand the banning of the sale of it to an extent because it is hard to regulate for mass production, but I will never understand telling someone they can't milk their own cow and drink the milk. That's the government getting a little too into my business. What's next? Can't grow my own veggies because I might not clean them properly?

Ya except none of the vaccines contain those things anymore Casey but that is a totally different debate one which I will not get into here.

Directed at everyone not just Casey I personally will never drink raw milk and NEVER should children be given raw milk. I have the statistics but really too lazy to go pull them up right now. However, it is a risk for most adults to drink raw milk but it potentially can be a death sentence for children. I will never risk it.

Organic milk does not have any of the antibiotics or hormones but is pasteurized so it is a much safer alternative.

We follow kashrut law (kosher diet). Our kiddos only get raw milk, natural and organic meats and fresh veggies. (thankfully, we live in the TX panhandle, where there is an abundance of farmers and ranchers that are willing to supply). As for raw milk being unsafe, the CDC and FDA are the same agencies admonishing us to vaccinate our kids with bulk vaccines containing lead, mercury, and even formaldehyde (things they all say are harmful to our kids).

Raw milk sales is actually banned in 28 states in the US as it has been deemed unsafe to drink.

Agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States, and some regulatory agencies around the world say that pathogens from raw milk make it unsafe to consume,

WHAT if you own a chicken or a cow u can get in trouble for using the eggs and milk becuase it wasnt inspected?? uh what the hell that is stupid hello thats as natural as you can get why would it need to be inspected?! We live in a weird world

Yeah the cheap-o milk comes from cows that are jacked up with hormones so they produce more, but then they end up with perpetual engorgement and mastitis, so they're always on a range of antibiotics (and that continuous use of antibiotics is contributing to resistant strains of bacteria).

And then to boot you've got heart-disease-causing oxidized cholesterol from the homogenization and the denatured proteins that prevent the utilization of the calcium in the milk.

It's really horrible when people don't have a choice to have good healthy food. Not that this really was a discussion of real vs. industrial food.

I think where I live it's only legal if you own the cow yourself so cow shares are really popular. A friend of mine just joined one. I'm going to see how things go with her experience over the next few months and then join us up if it's good. The thing about raw milk is you do want to know exactly where it's coming from. Wish I could have the cow in my own backyard. ha.



The health authority is trying to shut down the cow shares now. It pisses me off because I think people do need to have some choice over what they eat. And if you own the cow I don't think they should be able to tell you that you can't drink the milk. It's like this story out of PEI where this bed and breakfast was using their own chicken eggs for the breakfasts and then along comes the health authority - omg you didn't have your eggs inspected by us so you can't use them. Ridiculous. I've eaten backyard eggs on and off since I was a kid and I've certainly never been ill from it or known anyone who was. But you know - hot dogs are legal. Not that I don't want them to be because once a year I like to have a weenie roast. But it still boggles my mind that all the processed crap is cool and the natural stuff is banned.

It probably depends on where you are. Where we are the price for raw milk varies widely. I can get it at the health food store for a whopping $12 a gallon, or where I get it at Agway, $7.60 a gallon. Not much more than the ultra pasteurized organic dead milk at Walmart :).

Pastured chickens ARE crazy expensive. No way can we afford the $20 a chicken people are asking for around here!
