I am looking for some other stuff to feed my son, he is 10 months old and is probably getting tired of his usual mango's, pears, bananas, carrots and peas. I do feed him what we eat to but we don't always eat that healthy and I want him to have a better appetite than my daughter. I was young when i had her and didn't really think about the nutrition stuff. She is very picky, I'm surprised she hasn't turned into a chicken nugget yet. if you have any ideas how to get her to explore with food that would be great too!

Our son enjoys chicken cubes, beef roast, lamb, tofu, fresh fish, mac and cheese, whole grain pastas, fresh steamed veggies, beans, homemade soups (cream of broccoli is his favorite), cornbread, whole grain toast with all natural jam, yogurt and fresh fruit, homemade pizza, sweet potatoes cubes, cottage cheese, cheese cubes, whole grain crackers with cream cheese, oatmeal and fresh blueberries, melon of all kinds, whole grain rice and stewed tomatoes.. and the list goes on. I love to cook and have homemade our son’s meals since he started eating solids at 6 months. We have fun exploring foods of all kinds, and cooking together as a family has become a regular thing :) I hope this gives you some good ideas :)

At that age, my sons favorite food was mashed avocado on toast, yo baby yogurt, mashed bananas and unsweetened all natural applesauce. There is also http://www.wholesometoddlerfood.com/ to check out for your daughter. Easy ways to sneak things in her diet is to puree veggies and add them to soups and sauces she will eat. Also, wheat germ is an excellent source of vitamins and I have made my own homemade chicken nuggets with half wheat germ and half flour and then pan fried them or baked them. Much healthier! Also, if she's a mac n cheese kid as well (what kid isn't?) make a switch to Annies brand. It's all natural and nothing artificial. I like the creamy kind the best. Another easy switch is to all natural peanut butter and jams that contain NO HFCS just actual fruit. She gets to eat the same things she likes but you know that they are better for her! Always make sure you check your breads as well...they will put HFCS (unnecessary sugar) into everything these days! Nature Bake is an excellent brand.

My 9mos old loves chicken/spinach lasagna, papaya, guava, jimaica (the canned topical fruit in fruit juice instead of syrup), broccoli, whole wheat rice, scrambled eggs w/salsa, guacamole, avocado, butternut or acorn squash/pumpkin in a soup form or in other ways be creative and spice it up with mild curries and cumin, plain whole milk yogurt with whatever fruit chunks you want to add in. Try a variety of ethnic foods (Indian, African, etc.) and don't be afraid of spices. Have fun!!

My son is ten months and we started feeding him early at 3 or 4 months. He eats everything some of our favorites are tofu, flavored tofu it has some sugar but also healthy soy bean, blue berry pancakes, cucumber cut off the hard part, he likes grape fruit I just cut then spoon out the sweet stuff, homemade soups like pumpkin and potato soup or chicken noodle, our newest vegatable is jicima just peel it and cut it thinish. I will think of some more later.

How old is your daughter? Have you tried giving her healthy "dunking" foods? fruits with cottage cheese and celery with cheeze whiz or peanut butter and raisins to make "ant on a log" ... that kind of thing? Also I've heard kids will like eating vegitables mroe if they've grown them theirselves...have you tries having her plant her own veggie garden? Or help to prepare a healthy meal...might encourage her to eat it if she makes it. As for the 10 month old, you can try give him crackers, cooked pasta or rice, dry cereal like cheerios, or meat chopped up small so it's not a choking hazard.

Do you give finger food like toast? Potato scones are a favorite here at weekends! Mashed potato with some fish mashed in and some veg? I buy the frozen cod fillets and microwave them and give it to him in chunks to munch on. Also lots of fruit - fromage frais. Make pasta dishes like lasagne - just don't add salt.
