My son will be one on March 18, he is eating cereal and a fruit in the morning, then some cheerios, home made veggies made with chicken at lunch, and some fruit and cereal again for dinner (different flavor) plus he has two bottles of homo milk for naps and one formula for bed time. Should he be eating something else?? Please let me know what types of snacks I should be giving my one year old.. Thanks

I must be a meanie! :-) The day my daughter turned one, I stopped all bottles, pacis, formula, and baby food. My daughter didn't seem to mind - which we were very surprised!!! She has toast and fruit for breakfast, 2 veggies and a meat for lunch, fruit for a snack, and 2 veggies and a meat for dinner. I do 3 - 5 oz cups of milk for each meal, and water or juice with a snack. I'm old and didn't want to read a million books, so I quite everything cold turkey that day! May not work for all, but has worked beautifully for us. And....the savings from no formula and baby food has been GREAT!!!!!!!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Hi there avocado is one of the superfood a for children. They can have all vegetables as long as they are cut into pieces your child can eat. My daughter eats every vegetable you can serve sweet potato, spinach, kale, avocado, broccoli, the leafy greens are great for babies iron !. Also kiwi fruit and strawberries help babies absorb iron. At one try have a variety of all food groups to meet all the nutritional needs and yoghurt and cheeses are a calcium source instead of mainly milk hope this helps ... Don't forget babies want flavour so add herbs and spices as well. There are plenty of great recipes available on the Internet just keep offering foods to baby because they need plenty of nutrients also allow baby to feed themself by offering finger foods that can encourage them
To eat

Not a meanie! I totally agree! We didn't do any of those things either past one. :) Easier to take them away when they're younger and less attached!

The best thing you can do is just keep offering food, with good variety. Is he still gaining weight and developing on track? If so, then you don't need to worry if it seems like he's not eating anything. But, if his growth has slowed/stopped and/or his doctor is concerned, then you might need to get creative with getting food into him. Believe me, I know how hard that is because my daughter has lots of food allergies and is super picky so she hardly eats. Because of her limitations, she goes through times where she stops gaining weight, and she is delayed in her development (not walking till 20 months) because of her diet. We have to add fat/calories/protein in lots of crazy ways. But if your son is growing and learning, then you don't need to worry. Just keep offering him healthy foods and he'll eat what his body needs.

My daughter just turned a year on the 14th. After reading all these replies to your post, it seems our feeding schedule is a bit different.

7:30a - 8a: 20/80 mix of formula/whole milk

9-11a: some sort of fruit, or french toast, or yogurt, or a jarred fruit

12p: another 20/80 bottle

1 -2p: a meat and fruit of some sorts, or bread and meat, or a veggie and meat

4 - 5p, another 20/80 bottle

sometimes another snack of some sort (veggies, or fruit, or cereal, or oatmeal)

8pm: another 20/80 bottle



She just tried turkey hot dog pieces to day. Loves hummus, avacado, kiwi and most other fruits



Good luck thinking of different things your 1 year old should be eating! Remember, everyone is different with how they start out with the milk and other foods. Just gradually add in new things and you'l figure it out!

My daughter turned one on March 18th. She is on Vitamin D milk, and eats lots of veggie soup with beef, cheerios, fruit, peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat bread, yogurt, applesauce, and so on. She is not a picky eater so basically whatever I make for dinner she will eat!

It's a bit overwhelming reading these replies. My daughter turned one on 18 March and she definitely is not eating as much regular food as the rest of your babies. She does try a lot but is still mostly breastfed and will eat some organic baby food. She does have a milk protein intolerance, so she hasn't gotten any direct dairy. I've only recently started to slowly incorporate it into my diet. She just got her 7th tooth, so I'm just now starting to feel comfortable with her having to chew more. She loves her Puffs though! She will eat my (very chewy) oatmeal, tofu, some bread, chicken/turkey and rice. Oh, she also has refused a bottle since 5months and I've been trying to find a sippy cup she'll take to for months now.

My son does about three bottles a day of secondary formula. He's off of the infant mix and is now on a 9mo.-24mo. mix because he can't handle milk yet.

So. First is the bottle at about 0630 then breakfast at about 0830 and that's usually cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, bananas, tangerines, whatever.
Snack and a bit of a bottle at about 1030-1100 and naptime.
then we wing it. There is no one or two things that he likes to eat all the time so I pretty much just share a little bit of what I'm eating for dinner and then some fruit, veggies and grains.

then a bottle near bedtime.

He refuses to drink out of a sippy cup and I have no idea why. He was doing well for awhile and just decided to say "screw it" and stay with his bottles.

My son has the same birthday & really loves spaghetti! Turkey & Roast beef are favorites as well as soups. He really wants to feed himself, so I am mainly doing meats, fruits, veggies, cereal like you plus am switching to whole milk today per his Dr. @ one year checkup. Good luck figuring out what to feed your one year old :)

My son was one yday (march 17th)....and up until a week before his first bday he was nursing 3x a day and having solids 3x...and he suddenly just stopped taking the breast. I wasn't ready for him to give it up, but i guess he was :/ Anyways...now he drinks a 6oz bottle of whole milk mixed with formula (he won't drink cows milk alone, the nurse told us to start with half/half until he gets used to the taste of whole milk)..

he wakes up about 10am, has his bottle
then lunch is about 12ish-he has 2 or 3 second foods plus whatever i have - like eggs, toast, waffles..he loves cheerios! :D
then nap time is around 1-1:30 he sleeps for 2 hours...
and at 4-430 he gets his other meal. a 3rd food meat/veggie plus fruit..i mash bananas, or dice pears..and if i eat something with him ill give him some too...
and he eats the last meal of the day at 730, he eats dinner with the family, we feed him what we eat plus 2-3 2nd food tubs....
bath at 830 and bed at 9

he doesnt take a bottle at nap or at bedtime...i hope he is drinking enough liquids...we will be going for his check up next week :) i offer him water/juice plenty but he usually sips and spits lol

:) HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALL MARCH BABIES!! xD

my son turned 1 on march 10th. he eats ( very little pieces) crackers, bagels, toast, pancakes, nutrigrain bars,cheerios, fruity bunnies (annies oragnic cereal) sliced meats, cheeses and he loves vegetables. the only problem we have is fruit, but he loves yogurt and i give him 6 ounces of apple and eve organic juice every day. he also loves pasta of any kind. he has a really wide variety and for the most part eats what we are eating. the only difficulty is he only has 6 teeth (my oldest had like 15 by the time he was 1) he is also off formula and the bottle (he's a big boy for his age and the pediatrician ok'd it a little before his first bday)......the gerber toddler food line is awesome and beech nut has yogurt nibblers and veggie rice snacks and my son loves them all and they are really convenient for when we are on the go!!

My son, dylan turns 1 on 3/18 :)
7am goes like this: he has a whole chicken breast and i try to sneak in bits of happy baby cereal which he loves and bits of fruit, whatever is in season and ripe. he has a 7oz bottle of formula with his meals. when we are done with breakfast, i will give him a rice rusk, he adores the crunchy sound and it's more fun self-feeding. hot-kids makes really tasty ones. the toddler mum-mums are just a different shape with a little xtra sugar in the form of a drizzle pattern.

10am: cereal and chicken. can you tell how much my son loves chicken???

after naptime dylan has his lunch, another snack-time then dinner

lunch and dinner i occasionally alternate with salmon or some sort of egg dish.

dylan does really like fruit and veg, so i know this is a phase. we have a friend whose son a little older than dylan, won't eat anything BUT chicken. so we have a little leeway :)

My twins turned 1 on the 4th and they do have a bottle of whole milk and "lipil next step" when they wake up , then soon after some rice or oatmeal cereal with fruit for breakfast. for lunch and dinner they eat pretty much whatever my husband and I are eating ( unless we get fast food then the boys get a gerber toddler meal ) . They snack of fruits and crackers... they love the gerber cheese puffs or maple and cinnamon puffs or the diced fruits ......

They drink some juices and their whole milk during the day .... and a bottle at night

My son turned 1 today! He also prefers to feed himself, and usually likes taking bites of things rather than having me cut it into small pieces (I always sit with him and watch to make sure he doesn't choke). He only has 6 teeth, but he does well with it. He eats a ton and takes his time. He'll usually sit and eat in the high chair for 45 minutes. I offer him water in a sippy cup throughout the day and will be trying whole milk this week (in a cup...don't want to do bottles only to take them away again soon). Here's a typical day:

7:30 - breastfeed

8:30 - breakfast: some grain (bagel w/ cream cheese, English muffin, waffle, toast, multi-grain cheerios...) and fruit (banana, applesauce, mango, peaches, cut blueberries...) or sometimes yogurt instead of the bread

(9:30 - nap)

11:30 - lunch: some kind of protein (don't have much success with meat, but he LOVES any kind of cheese and will eat a lot, or sometimes kidney or black beans), more whole-grain bread or pasta, a veggie (peas, corn, avocado...) and fruit

1:15 - I was breastfeeding at this time until this week, but I will start giving him a cup of cows milk here before his afternoon nap

(1:30 - nap)

3:00 - snack: any kind of cracker, puffs, nutri-grain bar...and fruit

5:30 - dinner: whatever we are eating, cut small

7:00 - breastfeed, then sleep



By one year old, they can pretty much eat anything we eat, sometimes with some alterations (steaming to make soft, peeling, dicing), except nuts which I think you're supposed to wait until age 2 to introduce. If you have a family history of allergies, then you may have to wait longer for certain things. We have to wait until age 3 for nuts b/c my husband has a peanut allergy, but everything else is fine. Hope this helps give you ideas on what your one year old should be eating!

Our little man turned 1 on March 2nd, he is a great eater. He is however persistent and has been self feeding since he was 9 months old. A typical day for him is like this.
7:30 - 6 ounces of formula
9:30 - Yogurt and 1 piece of whole grain toast with either cheese or peanut butter
11:00 - snack - Any of the following: pickles, crackerswith hummus, LOVES Goldfishes, grapes, pears or other fruits, dry cereals and a 6 ounces of any beverage: water, watered down juice or homo milk
12:30 - Whatever we're eating for lunch - 6 ounces of soup and 1/2 grilled cheese sandwich, chicken with noodles and cut up veggies, homemade sweet potato fries with breaded chicken pieces.
2:30 - 6 ounces of either homo milk or flavoured toddler formula
4:30 - Snack - yogurt drink and any of the snacks mentioned above
6:30 - Dinner - again whatever we're eating. Spaghetti, Fish, Pork, Rice, veggies, stew. Again always self feeds.
8:30 - 8 ounce bottle of formula.

He was breast fed until his 1st birthday and I'm sure he would still love it. We've been really happy about his willingness to try and take new foods. He hasn't ate traditional baby food since 9 months. He's 24.5 pounds, in the 50%-75% and is 33 inches long.

my son was 1 on the 2nd xx

not a big eater, sometimes takes food from a spoon, sometimes only wants to feed himself............ so we snack for most of the day. just trying to get as much food in as possible.

snacks- cheese, rice crackers, corn on cob, fruit pieces, bikkies occasionally, sandwiches cut up small -avocado, tuna, crm cheese, vegemite, peanut butter, dried apricots or sultanas

My son will be one year on the 30th!!! Right now he eats roughly 3 meals per day, 2 snack times....and then some graham crackers etc ALL day long. He also has water and milk cups with each meal...and he nurses about 4-5 times a day still! It seems like so much, and he's still only in the 10th percentile for weight~~~doesn't get it from my side of the family ;)

My son will be 1 on the 16th it's gone so fast! I suppose every baby is different my daughter at this age was off bottles and on cows milk but not so lucky this time, my little man loves his bottles. I would prefer not give him bottles from one year old so have been trying to put milk in cup but with no success at the moment! He also doesn't really like finger foods so won't eat for snacks. His routine is as follows
6am breakfast - porridge with stewed fruit & toast
9.30am 200ml formula bottle
12.30pm - mashed veg & meat or soup
2.30pm - crackers & jar of fruit
5pm - mostly eats what we do at night now just mash it up or cut it smaller then a yoghurt
6pm - 200ml bottle

My little Bella will be 1 on the 30th!!!

7:00a.m 7oz bottle 20/80 (20% formula 80% cows milk) I do this because she had a milk protien allergy and after nursing for 4mo was put on Alimentum Hypo-allergenic formula.

7:30a.m multi grain cereal and a pureed friut and some of what we are having, begals, eggs, waffles pancakes, whatever.

9:00a nap till 11

11:15 yogurt and a few crackers or toast or granola bars

12:30p (today) cut avacado slice cheese and a piece of whole wheat bread with 1/2 c

diced friut and noodle soup a 1/2 slice of bread with butter.

2:00p 7oz bottle (cows milk) nap till 4-4:30.

4:30 another finger food snack animal crackers, dried friut pieces along with pudding, custard or cottage cheese

6:00 dinner multigrain cereal with a pured friut and veggie and whatever we are having, tonight beef stroganoff so I will puree her meat and let her pick up and eat her cut up egg noodles with sauce.

8:30 7 oz bottle 20/80 again then nite-nite.



Thats what she is eating these days, she will pretty much eat anything as long as I cut it small enough. She prefers regular food over pureed lately, she just wants to do it herself and although she will hold a spoon she hasnt quite mastered spoon feeding herself so she would rather be able to just pick it up and eat.

My son, turns ONE TOMMORROW!!! he eats...

7am breastfeed

7.20 breakfast - cereal (wheetbix / porriage ) and fruit (a banana or puree apple or peaches)

9.30 breastfeed and fruit (a nectraine or grapes or a pear or a plum / some sultanans and apple etc) Usually one ot two pieces of whole fruit cut up

11.20 lunch - meat, vegies and rice or pasta or cous cous (about 200gs) then yoghurt and fruit puree

2.30 bfeed then a snack which might be - fruit toast, pikelets, cheese on toast, ham, cheese and crackers, apple and sultana muffins, avacodo and cream cheese sandwhich

5.20 tea - vegies and rice / pasta / cous cous (around 200gs)

6.30 bfeed



So thats his day, he may have a rusk or some dried fruit or rice crackers if we go shopping or for a walk to keep him happy!

I make all his own food including his yoghurt and dried fruit. He also may have finger food for lunch or dinner, this may be quiche or salmon rice loaf or meat and roast vegies. I mainly still cut up / mash his foods and feed him to ensure he eats most. He is getting very good at feeding himself now with a spoon.

He loves his food and eats quite a lot compared to some of his friends but he is a good size and we are all happy. He eats EVERYTHING and will eat what ever is put in front of him. We try to eat lots of fresh, healthy foods.



I hope this helps you with what your one year old should be eating.

1:15 - I was breastfeeding at this time until this week, but I will start giving him a cup of cows milk here before his afternoon nap

(1:30 - nap)

3:00 - snack: any kind of cracker, puffs, nutri-grain bar...and fruit

5:30 - dinner: whatever we are eating, cut small

7:00 - breastfeed, then sleep



By one year old, they can pretty much eat anything we eat, sometimes with some alterations (steaming to make soft, peeling, dicing), except nuts which I think you're supposed to wait until age 2 to introduce. If you have a family history of allergies, then you may have to wait longer for certain things. We have to wait until age 3 for nuts b/c my husband has a peanut allergy, but everything else is fine. Hope this helps give you ideas on what your one year old should be eating!

My son, turns ONE TOMMORROW!!! he eats...

7am breastfeed

7.20 breakfast - cereal (wheetbix / porriage ) and fruit (a banana or puree apple or peaches)

9.30 breastfeed and fruit (a nectraine or grapes or a pear or a plum / some sultanans and apple etc) Usually one ot two pieces of whole fruit cut up

11.20 lunch - meat, vegies and rice or pasta or cous cous (about 200gs) then yoghurt and fruit puree

2.30 bfeed then a snack which might be - fruit toast, pikelets, cheese on toast, ham, cheese and crackers, apple and sultana muffins, avacodo and cream cheese sandwhich

5.20 tea - vegies and rice / pasta / cous cous (around 200gs)

6.30 bfeed



So thats his day, he may have a rusk or some dried fruit or rice crackers if we go shopping or for a walk to keep him happy!

I make all his own food including his yoghurt and dried fruit. He also may have finger food for lunch or dinner, this may be quiche or salmon rice loaf or meat and roast vegies. I mainly still cut up / mash his foods and feed him to ensure he eats most. He is getting very good at feeding himself now with a spoon.

He loves his food and eats quite a lot compared to some of his friends but he is a good size and we are all happy. He eats EVERYTHING and will eat what ever is put in front of him. We try to eat lots of fresh, healthy foods.



I hope this helps you with what your one year old should be eating.
