Fresh fruit cut into bite size pieces. Bananas, kiwi, strawberries and of course things like blueberries that do not need to be cut. Children tend to love fruit and it is the best way to introduce sweets! They contain natural sugars that are not harmful to the body like cane sugar (in any form...raw, brown, etc.)!

Check out a book called Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron. It has recipes for super porridge which is made of grains, beans, fruits and vegetables. It is easy to make yourself, inexpensive, healthful and variable. She also has lots of recipes for other toddler favorites.

French Toast sticks are great and easy, my two year old loves them! You can also give them some fruit with it for something a little healthier. Bananas are great for young ones.

Have you tried scrambled eggs with cheese? My daughter loves them! I also make her omelettes and put in green peppers, cheese, and tomatoes and cut into tiny prices. I make her turkey bacon once in awhile which is a great treat. I always feed her yogurt with fresh fruit along with whatever else I make for her but I have a VERY healthy eater on my hands who can out eat her momma some days. Just have fun experimenting! It's funny how motherhood turns us into nutritionist as well

Cheerios are nice. My son loves them!!! Toast, banana, pretty much anything you can eat. Bananas are usually mushy enough that just slicing is fine. :)

mush
cereal and milk
bagel with cream cheese
toast with peanut butter or cream cheese
omelet
french toast
pancake (you can buy some frozen ones at wal-mart that microwave up really nicely)
fruit--bananas, clementines, apples, applesauce, etc.
cereal in fingers (cheerios, frosted mini wheats, LIFE, kix, etc.)
raisins
granola bar (read labels if there are any allergies)
biscuits and gravy

Basically, at one year old, your child can eat most of the same stuff you are eating, just try to keep it healthy and cut it up small enough that he won't choke. My daughter who is 21 months, usually gets baby/toddler mush made with whole milk for breakfast and a sippy of milk. This is to ensure she is getting enough protein and the iron from the cereal is good, too. Then she gets whatever else she asks for. Sometimes it is eggs, cereal, cheese, fruit (usually she gets some kind of fruit mixed into the mush, too), yogurt, toast, etc. We let her tell us what she wants, and keep it on the healthy side.

Good luck!

Hi All,

I am thinking of getting an IUD as a contraception, has anyone got this, if so how is it and did it hurt.
If there is another good way of contraception, then can you please advice me.

Thanks

Hey have you ever tried banana bread. My little one loves having them. Quite easy to make and they are healthy too.

Thank Guys,

Am overwelmed with all you comments and great ideas. i have actually tried most of the ideas over the past week. I tried to give him boiled eggs, he only liked the white bit not the yellow, and then i tried to give him pan cakes, which he loved.
I will be trying the others to. :)
Thank you for everyone with their comments.

I take stale bread (a day or two before the due date) put it in a mixture of eggs and milk. Then in a pan with a tad of oil fry it both sides. It becomes this yummy softy bread and you can put almost anything on it. Jam, syrup, sugar, cinnamon. Its great to make and yummy. I used to only give porridge too ..I still do most days but weekends are great to add new things to their diet.

my son likes rusks made into a paste with milk.
Defunately bananas are an easy fruit for babys to eat. I agree with other comments boiled egg is a good idea. (obviously make sure it is not to hot)
What about waffles my little boy loves them as they are soft and easy to eat.
Broiches are quite good my best friend uses them for her baby and her baby apsolutely loves them

May I make a couple of suggestions? First, if he likes porridge, see if he'll accept some new additions to it. If he likes it plain, maybe he'd like adding some blueberries or peach or nectarine chunks or a little sprinkle of brown sugar or maple syrup (pick something you already know he likes)? The idea is to introduce new flavors but in a way that lets him continue with something he knows and is comfortable with. If he already likes to add things to it, see if you can find other things he likes already but has never added before. This helps stretch his mind in the direction of new possibilities.
The other idea I have is: get him involved. No matter what he's having, get him to helping prepare it. If you'd like him to try a hard boiled egg, after it is boiled and cooled, show him how to bang it on the table to break the shell, and let him bang away. So what if you end up with a few smashed eggs. Show him how to peel the shell away, then let him go to it. If you want to let him put some salt on a bite before eating it, pour just a tiny touch onto his plate and show him how to dip the egg into it and then take a bite.
No matter what you want him to eat, try to figure out some way to safely let him help somehow. Getting him invested in the preparation gives him a kind of ownership of the finished product, and that often encourages kids to try THEIR creation.

A friend of mines son was a very picky eater but loved to drink milk and well... Only milk so I suggested smoothies. It's a great way to introduce all kinds of fun and healthy things to your child's diet...maybe even sneak in a few greens.:)

I've been giving my son pancakes, french toast, all kinds of fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, scramble eggs. So far he's been loving it especially pancakes.

MALT O MEAL, GRITS, OATMEAL, AND ALL THE OTHER HOT CEREALS IN THE HOT CEREAL SECTION OF THE GROCERY STORE. ALSO LOOK IN THE ORGANIC OR HEALTH FOOD AISLE. THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT GRAINS THAT CAN BE COOKED LIKE PORTAGE. AS WITH ANY MUSHY CEREAL THE THICKNESS WILL MAKE IT MORE OR LESS LIKELY TO MAKE A TODDLER CHOKE.
HAPPY EXPERIMENTING!

When my son was 1 we had already introduced multiple fruits and yogurt so we started giving him smoothies! He loved it and you can add ingredients such as spinach and broccoli! Hope this helps!

When my daughter was 1 i would cut bananas into circles and then cut those in half and put some peanut butter on top, along with some fruit cut into small pieces. I hope this helps. Hugs from my family to yours.

My boys liked Hard boiled eggs at that age. Finger foods are easy, and fun. All fruits are good with cottage cheese. French toast sticks; just slice the bread into third's after it is cooked. Whole grain waffles or buckwheat pancakes are healthy and easy, make them silver dollar size so again, he can pick up and dip in agave syrup or apple sauce or anything. Hand to mouth is easiest at that age. Be creative and have fun
