My 16th month old, is my second child. My first born, is eight, and with the seven year difference between the two I seriously believe I forgot everything about rasing a toddler....LOL!!! I find myself giving my daughter a bottle first thing in the morning, only becuase I'm not really sure what I should be giving her. I wonder what you feed your baby?

I give my son some type of cereal in the mornings and a banana and a cup of milk. He really likes cheerios and rasin bran, so I give those to him a lot. He also really likes scrambled eggs with cheese melted in them, peanut butter toast, pancakes/french toast. I guess he likes breakfast foods :) I'm curious what other moms are giving their 16 month olds for breakfast now.

My boy just eats yoghurt, toast, cereal of some kind (still will eat Farex, Nurtri Grain, Just Right) and loads of fruit. I just mix up the flavors to keep him happy with it.

The same thing with me, I have a 7 year old and 16 month old twins and I was the same way not sure what to feed them and a little scared that what I fed them that they may choke. This is what I give the twins ANYTHING they want. Every morning they have eggs ,toast(bitesize), banana, and cheerios. And not always at the same time. Good luck!

he gets a bottle of milk first thing,...then about 30-45 min later we eat breakfast. Breakfast varies every day. he always gets some dry cheerios on his tray to eat while I prepare breakfast, and a cup of water. Some days cottage cheese and fruit and a pc of toast. Some days Wheat pancakes and some fruit. Other days scrambled eggs w/cheese on top and some fruit. We also have Oatmeal, Cream of Wheat, Yogurt, Quinoa w/Steamed apples (he loves this!), among others. It all depends on how much time I have before leaving the house (Working Mom). Every day breakfast is different than the day before. General Rule for me: Main Item and Fruit for Breakfast, For lunch: Main item,Veggie & Fruit, For Diner: Main item and Veggies. Some days it's not always perfect, but that the goal I set out for each day. Good luck!

My daughter eats oatmeal with fruit (usually strawberries and blueberries) during the week, and weekends she usually gets scrambled eggs with peppers, onions, mushrooms, and cheese (sometimes with fruit and/or toast). When i think of it, i'll make her a smoothie with yogurt, milk and fruit - she can never get enough of that!

My girl eats (drinks) a smoothie for breakfast. We find it a great way for her to get lots of fruit and calcium and since she takes a powdered multi-vitamin (which is not that great tasting with just water), we add that in too. She is picky about veggies and even some fruit so we find it helpful in making sure she gets enough servings in the day. It is also soo easy to make and I usually have one too. She often also has a little bit of toast and some multigrain cheerios when she first gets up with dad at 6:30, then smoothie at 8 with me. On weekends she will have pancakes (I still want to get a waffle maker) or may be an egg.

My 16 month old son still has a bottle of milk first thing after he wakes up. We have not yet found a sippy cup that he will drink from so he has milk, water, juice in a bottle. After his bottle he will have some cheerios or toast or a cereal bar or anything really. There is not much food that he won't eat. He is the complete opposite of our 3 year old who is very picky. For a mid morning snack he will have some fruit and water to drink. he usually naps shortly after that. Then for lunch it will be something like grilled cheese sandwich or kraft dinner with water or juice. He will have another bottle of milk before his afternoon nap. If he is hungry after his nap and before dinner, he will have some cheerios or crackers or a cookie. Then he will have whatever I make for the family supper with water or juice. He goes to bed about 2 hours after supper and he will have a bottle of milk before he brushes his teeth and goes to sleep for the night.

My 16 month old loves food, which makes it easy for me...for breakfast she always has a few ounces of milk, and then an array of fruit-usually a banana, a tangerine, and maybe some blueberries or pears or half an avocado. She won't really eat toast, although she'll take a few bites if it has peanut butter or cream cheese on it. But she loves scrambled eggs, and will eat a hardboiled egg if I sprinkle it with a little salt. She also loves applesauce & yogurt, and she likes cottage cheese with a little hummus mixed in. I usually drink a fruit & yogurt smoothie, and if I have a little extra, she'll drink it. She eats a very small German pancake (what some ppl call a Dutch baby) on Sundays, and on Saturdays she usually eats half of my croissant. I also buy whole-wheat fig bars that are sweetened with fruit juice and she likes those as well.

Mine eats anything her older sister eats, cereal, pancakes, eggs. But my older girl didn't eat that much stuff at this age, so every baby is different.

I give my daughter her cereal (I use the formula to make it and its not too thick so she drinks it from her bottle) in the mornings with fruit (apple or orange). That's usually about 5 or 5:30am then by 8:am she has breakfast with the family and has whatever we are having (mostly carbs and protein stuff like yam and dumplings with eggs or some kind of breakfast meat) I cut hers thin so its easier for her to chew. For lunch after she gets up from a 2 hr nap about 1pm, we have veggies steamed and cut thin (so she can chew them better) and meat (chicken, fish or beef) and Juice. She has a snack at about 3:30 Juice, A piece of toast with jam or yogurt or cheese. She doesn't usually nap in the afternoon. For dinner (6:30) we have whatever the family is having, usually more veggies with a different kinda meat from whatever we had at lunch. for her supper she has another bottle of cereal then she's off to bed by about 9:30. And of course she has her water periodically throughout the day.

I've tried giving Jeffrey his morning juice in a sippy cup first thing when he wakes up and he will NOT take it any way at that time of the day except in his bottle. Rest of the day he's fine with drinking water, juice and a little soda from a sippy cup but milk must be in a bottle.

I have a bottle of Minute Maid Berry Juice ready-10 oz of part juice and part water when Jeffrey wakes up. I've realized he is hungry first thing but he's really thirsty and milk is to heavy for his stomach first thing. I also have a Yoplait Baby Yogurt and some dry cereal like Kix, Fruit Loops, or Cheerios. As the morning progresses, I might make him something else solid to eat and vary it day to day. My choices include: precooked sausage links, waffles, pancakes, whole wheat toast, and scrambled egg. As the day goes on I have chicken nuggets, fish sticks, hot dogs, cheese sticks, applesauce, pudding, and various crackers. He loves sweet corn, sweet peas, and green beans and will eat a little of whatever we are eating.

Hi! Well my daughter is almost 16 months old, and for breakfast I give her a sippy cup of milk, half a bananna, and some yogurt. She willl normally point out what she wants to eat for breakfast, so it can vary from day today. Sometimes she wants oatmeal and milk in a cup.

My almost 16 month old is allergic to eggs so to avoid giving her the "wrong thing" while half asleep trying to feed her I stick to some kind of cheerios and milk in the morning. If she isn't having a picky day I sometimes give her a half a cup of Trix yogurt since it doesn't have aspartame in it or some fresh fruit. Normally she sticks to just the cheerios though. She doesn't really eat a lot but loves Oscar Myer hot dogs. I am trying to get her to realize she can't eat a hot dog at every meal :-)

hey Laura, thats what we thought too but when we asked our ped he said if there are no allergies in mom or dad than the nut thing is more of a choking issue than an allergy, so peanut butter is ok as it is pureed. Hope that helps :~)

My daughter gets multigrain cheerios, fruit, cottage cheese and juice for breakfast during the week. Eggs, waffles, pancakes and french toast are reserved for special times when daddy is back in town.

Question for those of you that give peanut butter on toast.. I thought you weren't supposed to give nut products until after age two.

my daughter, obviously the same age... I give her 1/2 slice of toast with peanut butter, 1 cup of yogurt, and then the 3rd thing is always different. sometimes its fruit, sometimes its cheerios etc. And she ALWAYS gets a full cup of milk when she first wakes up (and eats her breakfast usually an hour or so after waking up)

My 16 mo. old daughter likes yogurt, oatmeal, all kinds of fruit, cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, whole wheat toast, and she also likes Cream of Wheat. I make it with her whole milk and add a little pureed fruit for added flavor. She also gets a sippy cup of milk.

We are boring. We just have a bowl of cereal or toast, depending on how hot or cold the day is. My daughter won't touch egg unfortunately, she reacted to it some time ago & I've been trying to get her to try again to see if there is a change but no luck.

My 16th month old usually has a version of what we are having: a protein like eggs (scrambled, hard-boiled, whatever, I try to vary it) or a little peanut butter on toast, fruit like squashed blueberries or kiwi, and dairy in the form of Yo Baby yogurt, string cheese, or whole milk (my pediatrician recommends 16-24 oz of whole milk a day). I'm trying to think of good foods to take out and about with me. So far, I've come up with taking along peas, hummus (you can get individual packs at Costco here), crackers, toddler snack products, but it doesn't seem like enough. I don't know, mayb

My 16 month old eats almost the same as my 2 1/2 year old. We eat cereal, oatmeal, fruit, eggs, pancakes (plain or with apple butter), toast with apple butter or peanut butter, raisins, sometimes french toast or waffles. Basically, it's fruit and whatever they request from my list of offerings. Sometimes, they get a breakfast meat -- bacon or sausage -- but it's so rare that they don't even ask for it.
Like the other Moms said, snacktime quickly approaches and breakfast becomes a distant memory. Which leads to snack foods of a different fruit than breakfast, animal crackers, juice, different cereal, toddler poofs, sometimes unsalted crackers or pretzels, or the gerber apple wheels.

Waffles are the hit for my son. However I have given him a hot pocket as well and cut it up real good and he likes that. My biggest issue is lunch and he will not allow me to feed him. Mr Independent

My son will get milk and then waffles/mini pancakes or his big thing at the moment is oatmeal. He loves the stuff and it keeps him nice and full until snack time at around 10:30.

our son usually has toast, waffles or cereal. he does not like eggs no matter how we offer them. If its breakfast with mommy usually toast(cheese whiz, sometimes peanut butter or jam) or cereal (cheerios, rice crispies). If daddy does breakfast it waffles with berries or french toast. He has his times when he'll eat yogurt he is back to liking it again after not touching the stuff for 3 months..... Strange little guy but as long as he eating something. He will share a glass of milk with us. Other than that he usually has water in the Am, Super diluted juice in the afternoon and only has milk after supper.
