Lunch?

[deleted account] ( 14 moms have responded )

What does your baby have for lunch? My boy has a bottle of Purity fruits and yogurt. Should I start giving him something more filling as he has become very active?

Usually we have fresh cut up fruit (pear, apple, clementine) with a string cheese and a little bit of whatever mommy and daddy are having! This way it mixes in finger foods that aren't too messy for daytime (we do the bananas and ravioli type finger foods for right before bath time) with some spoon fed food. Kinda works for him...best of both worlds still!

I give my 14.5 month old daughter lots of fruits such as berries, oranges, boiled peach, boiled veggies, organic puffed whole wheat or puffed kamut as snacks, baked kale, yams, yogurt, - she also likes rice with lentils or whole wheat tortillas with real cheese - switching out stuff each day helps- i haven't yet introduced anything with added sugar and hope to keep it that way till i can. Also for all parents that are getting boxed dinners or store brought snacks the below non GMO shopping should help! you will be surprised at how much junk food packaged as "healthy" options is in the stores:

Madi has lots of fruit, rice cakes or sandwich, some protein (chicken or tuna normally) and water. Try the frozen berries - she loves boysenberries. I even give them frozen, but be prepared to get messy!!

My little one loves Grilled Cheese sandwiches, lunch meats, little pieces of chicken and fruit and veggies. A typical lunch would be about 15 blueberries, a low fat string cheese cut in little pieces and some chicken. Or maybe 1/2 a grilled cheese and tomato pieces. She loves the Gerber toddler meals as well. They aren't enough for dinner anymore but usually do fine for lunch with maybe some fruit on the side.

Nolan turned one on 12/30/09 and eats everything. For lunch he usually has a meat (chicken breast cut up or ham etc) a veggie (canned or fresh steamed) and some fruit(an apple cut up or banana or peches etc) he drinks milk from a sippy cup and once in a while I give him some juice watered down but usually either milk or water. He has always been a good eater though.

I agree with Rachel. Our daughter eats whatever we are eating. Today we actually met Daddy for lunch out. I ordered pork chops with baked potato and salad bar. She had tons of stuff off the salad bar, including fruit, veggies, pasta salad, bread, chicken soup, and banana pudding. If its a day I'm not cooking much, I'll warm up a all beef weiner & cheese plus veggies & fruit. Chicken pot pie works well. We do leftovers & whatever is available often!

Whatever were eating that's what my 14month old eats, weather it's soup and sandwhich or homemade mac and cheese, followed by fruit she eats alot at lunch probably her biggest meal of the day!

my son is also 14 1/2 months (december 23). he likes whole grain tortillas spread with goat cheese. bananas are his favorite. pears, boiled sweet potatos, mashed-up peas are also good. we do a lot of leftovers -- spaghetti, lasagna, etc. it's so hard to figure out what to feed him sometimes!

My boy is 14.5 months, and we do Grill cheese, left overs, french toast (hold the sugar) lots of cut up veg (red-yellow-orange peppers, cucumbers, steamed carrots, broccoli, sliced up cheese, noodles,) anything really that he'll eat, and wont throw on the floor. Try the peppers I am sure he'll love em!

We do small sandwiches such as turkey and cheese, peanut butter and jelly with some fruit and V8 splash juice to get in his veggies. Other times we do veggie burgers and fruit.
