What your 7 month old eats?

I'm running out of ideas what to feed my 7 month old son. At the moment he has 3 meals a day. For breakfast he has rice cereal with fruit, followed by a bottle of formula. For lunch he has a mixture of pureed veges i make for him, followed by a bottle of formula. For dinner he has some sort of pureed fruit, also followed by a bottle of formula. He sleeps through the night so he doesn't get a night bottle.
I've been looking for new foods to give him. I feel like he is always having the same boring things. I looked on the internet for recipes/ideas but they all involve chunky/finger food, and he has no teeth yet so i don't want to give him any whole food.
Just wondering what your 7 month old eats, and how often. Also if you have any food ideas that would be great, thanks :)

my little man is currently having 2 bottles a day and 5 feeds! he has some sort of cereal for breakfast (weetbix, porridge etc), yoghurt for morning tea, meat veg and pasta that i cook for lunch, custard for afternoon tea and then either tinned fruit or cooked veg for tea (now with meat in the veg too). he is also having a bottle of kiddies juice each day, generally to wash down the meals. i got to the point where i wasn't sure what else i could feed him but he's started just eating now whatever we eat, cut into small pieces ie. last night we had steak and veg for tea so he did too. and tonight sausages and veg

My 7 month old daughter started eating solids last month. I feed her 3 meals of solids followed by her formula every 4 hours as well. I first started out with rice for each feeing as well, then oatmeal for a week or two at a time before I started her on vegetables and fruit, which is preferred by her pediatrician and a very informational book entitled "What To Expect The First Year", as well as online. I do feed her her bottle only in the evenings before she goes to bed and like your son she sleeps all night and wakes up on her own in the morning. I feed her rice or oatmeal for breakfast and a variety of fruits and vegetables for lunch and dinner. she eats green beans, peas, carrots,sweet potatos, and a garden blend for her vegatables, and bananas or apples for her sweets. Her favorite is green beans. I have heard about how some mothers feed thier babies mashed potatos but i am afraid that it would be hard on her stopmach. I am going to ask her doctor about it as her next well baby check up. One thing that concerns me the most is that she has not gained a significant amount of weight since birth and since she has been on solids she has a bowl movement ony a few minutes later which makes me worried that noe of her food is getting digested (anotherthing I am going to ask her ped. about). I hope this helps for your little one. BTW, how long after he eats does he have a BM? Best wishes!

my son doesnt have a set feeding. i feed him formula mostly. but he also gets pureed fruits and a little veggies. and sometimes i give him mashed potatoes(without salt or butter), some grapes, and he just started eating teething biscuts.(he has 2 teeth). you can pretty much give him anything if u puree it.

My daughter eats mostly organic baby food. They make so many different kinds, from fruits like blueberry combos to different meat and poultry combos. She especially likes the veggies like carrots and green beans. I also will give her tastes of things that I am eating, provided they are very very soft (able to mush) and are Dr. approved. My Dr. said I could give her cheerios and frozen bagels to chew on, but I am not comfortable with that yet. She has no teeth so I will not give her anything that is not super soft or meltable. I know a lot of people think it is fine, but I am scared. I feel there are enough options out there that give her the same learning tools she needs (chewing, hand to mouth coordination, learning how to pick up small objects) as foods that I don't feel comfortable with. She loves Puffs and these cookies called MumMum. They are great because they allow her to feed herself and I feel safe knowing that they melt in her mouth. When she gets some teeth I will start to give her more stuff.

At this point almost anything you eat he can eat. Try putting some rice and veggies or noodles and veggies in a blender or food processor. I have even made soups and then just blended them up for a few seconds. I always mix a few things together to get more foods in at the same time. Also you could go with beans like black beans or garbonzo, and avacados. Good luck!

My guy doesn't have teeth yet either, but I give him small chunks of soft foods. I'll give him cubes of anything - beets, sweet potatoes, peas, toast, avocado, peaches, plums. Pretty much whatever I'm having he wants to try so I let him as long as it's not a choking hazard, potential allergen, spicy, etc. I've even given him cheerios! He manages to gum everything pretty well and I stay right with him in case he chokes. Pretty much as long as it's a soft food or cooked until soft he can eat it.
Something he eats as a main meal each day is Quinoa Dream. It's very healthy containing quinoa, brown rice and millet. I mix it with applesauce or some other fruit/veg chunks and he loves it. That way he gets an iron source mixed with something containing vitamin c so his body can absorb the iron better. Although if you're feeding formula I guess you don't have to worry about that!
Oh, and as for how often he eats...he has one meal (dinner) and one or two small snacks (about 6-10 cheerios or pieces of fruit/veg) each day. I'm still breastfeeding pretty much full time. The solids are more for experimentation and to get some iron into him. I probably nurse him about 10 times each day(24hrs).

Hey Emma,
My son has 3 meals a day with snacks in between meals. Breakfast he has either Porridge or weet bix or scrabled eggs.. Lunch he has pureed fruit and a bottle of water.. Dinner he has mashed veges and meat like mince or sausage meat.. Or just pureed veges with a bit of meat stock for flavouring with a bottle of water.. He also has his bottle of formula at least twice a day with 1 at night. His feeds however do range because we eat our traditional food from our culture as well and there are some foods that he also eats with us..

Hope that helps.

Wow! Sounds like she is getting plenty of variety to me! She is a new person and has never had any food before, so I think all these new flavors are probably good enough...she has tried way more than my daughter! It amazes me how all the ladies' in the responses have kids that eat too!! My daughter has 7 oz bottles 5 times a day (we just dropped the night feeding and increased the ozs). She is a great sleeper now - 7 pm to 7 am....although she will get up at 5 am for me to sleep with her and i lay with her in the guest bed till she we wake up at 7. I started her on solids at 4.5 months and she has just started going to 2 times a day...and she takes a while to eat a level 1 or 2 gerber jar...maybe 2-3 days. It is recommended for allergies to wait a few days in between new foods any way. She has tried sweet potatoes and carrots, which she loves...she is ok with peas and pears...but doesn't like applesauce....she hates rice and oatmeal cereal, but the oatmeal mixed with apples and bananas she will tolerate. She has the two meals at 10 and 4...and she has to have the food heated! I don't know how to get her to want to eat more solids, but she seems perfectly happy with her formula!! Also - I tried to give her a mashed banana and she gagged and threw up! It was tiny and mashed...so no real food that is not pureed for now (meat, etc)....but today she tried another tiny bite of banana and liked it....so maybe she will be ok with more....

Hi Emma, My LO has just turned 8 months but has for the last month been eating pretty much everything we eat. I chop up his meat and veggies small and use small pasta but he loves solid food and does really well at mashing it with his gums. If you wait until they have the teeth for chewing they will still be eating mush until they turn 2 as their molars (the ones they use for chewing) don't come through till then! It is important once they turn 6 months to make sure they are getting enough iron in their diet as the iron that is stored in them at birth has run out by then so meat (unless you are bringing them up a veggie) becomes more important. Today I have given him weetabix with chunks of banana and regular full fat milk and toast, a bottle mid morning, lunch was sausage casserole (with lots of veggies and tomato sauce no added salt in his portions) and mashed potato and green beans followed by apple sponge and ice cream, another bottle mid pm, mini pasta shapes with a bolognese sauce and fromage frais for pudding followed by a bottle at bedtime. The amount he eats varies day by day (he's got his front teeth coming through at the moment so he's not eating all his meals) but he enjoys a very varied diet. I found with his sister the earlier you give them "proper" food rather than baby food the less likely to be fussy they are. hope this helps.

Hi Emma
My little girl is of a similar age, I tend to try and give her, her main meal at lunch that way if she tired at tea time she's had a main meal. Have you introduced meat yet, if you yourself eat meat. Chicken I was advised to grate as it can be an odd texture for them. I've also just started her on lamb, this I blended as a new taste but we're mashing food as she likes a lumpier texture. I've also bought baby pasta and added cheese and tuna. I was also told that you can give finger food at this age, even though they don't have teeth their gums are hard and they can chew or gum things.

Hope it helps

Well my son don't have teeth eather but it is ok to give him some chunky/finger food u just have to make sure that its pea size. My son eats vegeys and mashed potatos and just stuff like that. I have been tryin to also find stuff for him to eat. If u don't feel right about givin him chunky food just get what ever your eatting and just puree it.

Gerber and beech nut have baby food which has all sorts of variety. My son loves it all. The corn casserole is very good. He has also had every fruit and veggie variety, and also sweet potatoes and chicken. There are other meats and meals too, still at his current stage.

My daughter is not a big food eater just yet. She will eat a variety of things as well. I have her on the 2nd foods now. Just depends on what she will eat that day. I try and feed her the food 2-3 times a day but sometimes she just doesn't want it. She will not eat cereal at all... Even mixed with fruit! But she seems to be fine. Her doc says that she will eat more when she is ready and he was not concerned at all. I do get a large variety of the baby foods though and she seems content. Also have fed her avocado and some real fruits as well and she seems to love them. I also just bought the graduates lil cruncers puffs and she loves those as well. I make the pieces smaller when I give them to her though since she only has 2 teeth.

My daughter won't eat anything that is like baby food. She has no teeth but does fine eating the same food I eat for every meal.
She has never been a fan of the baby food and I tried and tried but she just wouldnt eat it.
I give her little pieces and she does just fine. For snacks she gets the gerber puffs to help her with chewing and she loves those. Dont be scared to try new things, just make sure they are little pieces that are easy to mash in their mouth.

Hi Emma, For some more good ideas, you may wish to buy/borrow any book by Annabel Karmel. She has authored many infant/toddler/children recipes that are both creative and healthy. My daughter pretty well likes all of them (though slow to like the potato, leek, and pea recipe, but I am not a huge fan of peas either). I make up large batches and freeze them in ice cube trays so that during the week it is as easy to make lunch or dinner as it would be to open a jar. Good luck!

My son turned 7 months on Aug 11 and he still has no teeth. His favorite veggies are squash, cauliflour, bell pepper and carrots. He likes brocoli, green beans and green peas too. He gives me a fit about eating pureed foods anymore though. I have to cook them until they are very soft and give them to him in small bites. I have a baby food maker that grinds things small but doesn't completely puree so they still have texture and he really likes that alot better than the runny stuff. He also likes chicken, I put it int he crockpot and use things like onions and garlic, or tomatoes and bell peppers to flavor it and nothing with salt or preservatives and no cooking oil just water in the crock pot. It gets very tender and falls apart so I can easily grind it up. Kurt also eats asparagus and celery well. Another good choice for texture without needing teeth is mandarin oranges, they come in those tiny single serve cups, are very soft and fall apart easily. Anything you cook from fresh or frozen that isn't full of fat, salt and chemicals is fine. Don't feel limited to the foods that come in baby food jars. Good luck.

hi
well savannah is 7 months today and just got her first two teeth at once..
for breakfast.. cerel and fruit and a bottle or i will mix the fruit in the cerel.. she loves bananas and spple strawberry banana..

then for lunch she will have a veggie the second stage peas& carrots.. etc. and then a fruit and a baby mum mum which is a rice rusk.

for dinner its usually a meat veggie and a fruit with another 1-2 rice rusks.. she drinks probably about 4-5 bottles a day of formula and there all about 5-6 oz.

but savanah also eats just about everything i eat.. perogies,mash potatoes,french fries,peaches,corn bread,french toast, peanut butter on toast..
basically the stuff the doctor tells you to wait for i try them now because she has teeth.

I make my own purees for my 7 month old. Apples, bananas, peaches, avocado, pears, butternut and acorn squashes, sweet potato, green beans, peas, carrots, and cereals like oatmeal, barley and rice. They suggest prunes, mango, and blended soups or stews are good too. But they's so much controversy over what and when to feed your LO solids. WIC, Gerber, and FDA all seem to be on different pages. I just try a little bit of everything and stick with what he likes!

At 7 1/2 months we're doing pretty much the same as you.. My little one loves weet-a-bix mixed with formula for breakfast and baby yogurt. I try to make all her food. Perhaps try some split pea concoctions.. very filling. For different flavours, a smidge of garlic or fresh chives in a chicken and/or vege mix. Leeks with ham and vegs are a nice change, as is fish. I've also tried rissoni pasta or rice instead of potato for carbs. Sweet potato is a favourite especially with beef.
For something completely diff, if missy is still up at dinnertime, we seat her at the table and let her play with cooked spaghetti as we're having spag bog or a lettuce leaf when we're having san choy boy ( lettuce leaves filled with tasty pork mince). I find the more I can interest her in food, the less formula she'll have in a day.

I wouldn't worry about giving him tons of different things-remember-for months he was just eating either breast milk or formula. Those things are probably not borring to him yet. Those sound like great meals. Babies really don't need or desire a ton of variety in food at such a young age. You're doing great! Just keep it up.
PS. It sounds more like you're more bored with the food than he is.

I found out using gerber yogort drops melt in their mouths and I have try that with my little guy who is working on his first teeth but yet has not got them. I make alot of my baby food because he is allgeric to wheat products and have watch a lot of food that goes in his mouth. Also I have tried this product called yumyum, it is made with rice starch and it melts in their mouth too but you have to watch them with it. It is like a teething cookie. I hope this helps

my 7 month old eats everything.. but he has teeth too.
i started him on noodles before he got his first tooth. just things that are soft. dont necessarily have to be fruit and veggies.

i give him everything i eat. he loves it.
and when your baby starts getting that first tooth. wagon wheels are great. their kind of hard so you'll have to watch him. but they melt. kind of slow. but thats what i used for my sons first tooth. it broke through so fast.

I buy baby foods, not make them. But I get the Gerber stage 2 foods, they aren't chunky but have a lot more variety. My daighter is 7 months and doesn't have any teeth either. But she loves the Turkey and Rice, Mac and Cheese and the Chicken and Veggies one. I use those ones for dinners. Since you use homemade ones, try to puree mac and cheese or something.

Well, Lets see. My daughter will have a bowl of oatmeal with bananas and a 6 oz bottle for breakfast at around 8am. Then she will have another bottle at around 11am. Lunch for her is half of a grilled cheese sandwich or some chicken chunks with some diced peaches, pears, or bananas. With a bottle. She eats lunch around 2 when she wakes up from her afternoon nap. Dinner is usually around 6pm. Which consists of one of the stage three gerber food. Sometimes depending on what we are eating I might give her some of my speghetti noodles or pieces of fish. She will have a bottle with dinner as well and then another one before bed. She will snack throughout the day and she sleeps like 12-13 hours at night.

Yes, I really like Annabel Karmel's books too, although I find that the recipes in The Baby's Table are more interesting and cover a wider range of fruits and veggies. Batch cooking and freezing is definitely the way to go - I have a freezer full of different types of things that I mix together. I forgot to say what he eats and when:

Breakfast is usually a double portion of fruit with oatmeal or mixed grains cereal (peaches with whatever else I feel like that day...current favourite is kale and apple, which he won't eat on its own). I usually nurse him right after and then again before his first nap (he usually has about 2-3 hours between naps).

If he's up from his nap too early for lunch, I nurse him then and give him lunch around noonish. He has fruits and veggies for lunch, usually both with cereal mixed in (depending on the consistency of the puree). I'll nurse him again before his next nap.

If he's awake in the afternoon between lunch and dinner, I usually give him a snack (mashed up banana is good, or some avocado, which he LOVES and is very very good for him).

If he's not up at that time, dinner is around 5 or 6 and he has slightly larger portions of fruit and veggies with cereal again. Then I nurse him again before bed. He's sleeping through the night intermittently, so I'll nurse him in the middle of the night if required.

I wondered about how much to feed him (BabyCenter has a very good guide for this), so I try to give some variety and also make sure he has one orange veggie and one green veggie per day, and a couple of different kinds of fruit (including tropical ones like mango, papaya and kiwi). I just feed him until he won't eat anymore - he lets me know when he's definitely full. I live in Ontario, so I've really been enjoying the fresh produce from my local market. I'm not looking forward to winter:(

Check out a book called The Baby's Table. It has lots of great recipes for kids of all ages. Most of their recipes do equally well as purees and chunkier versions when babies are older. If you're looking for veggies to try, my son loves squash, zucchini, sweet potato. I also steam cauliflower and broccoli and puree them with grated cheese. He loves it! Other favourites are carrots and parsnips, which both mix well with applesauce. I also make vegetable stock and it's great for adding some flavour (there's garlic, pepper and some fresh spices in it) to boring old veggie purees.

I was told that when they're ready to eat solids, to feed them a wide variety so I just go to the grocery store and try a bunch of different stuff. She's even tried bok choy! Asparagus, zucchini, turnips, avocados, broccoli, so much fun stuff. I've also given her crackers to feed herself that dissolve. Vegetable thins have been one of her favourites and they come in whole wheat. Have fun with it : )

I make up batches of chicken veg and gravey and freeze it for my little one she loves it, i do mince also. i get a chux cloth and put cut up fruit in it and tie a rubber band around it and she can chew on it for ages (using cold fruit from fridge is great for teething too) i also do mashed veg usually pear apple banana and berries and freeze it too. Weetbix are nice too my little one loves weetbix.

Although your son doesn't have teeth, you can still make his food more exciting by adding new flavors such as garlic, onion, and other potent ingredients a little bit at a time. You can also very easily add some chicken or turkey to his veggies and fruit when you puree. It tastes just as good when it is all ground up as it does whole, and when you make it yourself it tastes much better. You probably already know that. My seven month old daughter eats almost anything. She has eight teeth, though. However, when my seven year old was a baby, I didn't wait for teeth. She was eating lots of yummy and healthy combinations, including the good stuff like garlic and pepper. Now, she will eat just about anything! As for frequency, I feel like Clementine, the seven month old, is constantly eating. Pears, peaches, Cheerios, ham, and anything that she can swipe from her sister's plate when her guard is down.
Good luck!

my 7 month old gets a 7 ounce bottle first thing in the morning (between 6 and 630), then around 930 he gets oatmeal with fruit and a 5 ounce bottle, at 1 he gets rice and vegetables and a 5 ounce bottle, around 5 he gets a jar of a "meal" (for instance: chicken and vegetables, or turkey and rice and vegetables), and a 7 ounce bottle before he goes to bed at 830. I give my baby Beech Nut baby food and there are quite a few varieties of fruits and vegetables and different combinations so I don't think Zack gets bored at all.
