What do you feed your One year old for lunch and dinner? I'm running out of ideas :)

Breakfast is breastmilk, sometimes cereal that he can feed himself, sometimes fruit if we have any (had a hard time affording it lately),
lunch is breastmilk and usually black beans sometimes another kind of bean (for some unfathomable reason he HATES chick peas, my favorite bean!) and some kind of veggie, fresh broccoli, fresh cucumber, steamed zucchini, etc.
dinner is breastmilk and usually what ever we are having or if he can't eat it (like a sandwich) it will be similar to lunch.

He will not let me feed him, he refused any and all solids until 10 months being exclusively breast fed until then as he wasn't able to feed himself yet. Now he feeds himself finger foods, and I'm about to start letting him learn to use a spoon. Thinking about starting out with this recipe:

mine eat what ever we do.. from cereals, oatmeals, fruits, yogurts, diced hotdogs is one of their favorite lunch time items, rice with veggies, chicken and they love fresh trout or salmon.. spagetti is a favorite but i agree it is very messy.. they have their snacks too and one of their favorites are pretzel sticks.. they just love those soo much.. mandarin oranges and blueberries are another favorite.. they arent picky eaters.. the only thing we have found that they dont care for is squash..

On a normal day...
For breakfast we do a bagel with cream cheese or oatmeal. (eggs are one of her two dislikes)
For lunch we do fresh fruit and yogurt. Bananas, oranges, pears, melons, berries, mangos, etc.
For dinner she eats anything and everything that we do.
She has small snacks between every meal of Cheerios, graduates, veggie sticks, etc.

Breakfast is whole milk and cereal. Lunch is whatever we had the night before...veggies, any meat, fruit with about 8oz water. Dinner is whatever we are having too. Always fresh fruit and fresh veggies.
Snack are cereal, yoghurt, veggie straws, fruit

hi jaclyn, i got an idea for my baby from an african friend of mine...the best food for your baby is to be cooked at home...take a corn flour+oatmeal+sugar+butter cook it, its delicious my son likes it alot...that for dinner...and for lunch i feed him sweet potatoes...or cassava its nice and healthy for them and they become more strong...hope to get new recipes from you too as we can change ideas...

Zachary also eats whatever we're eating. He goes to day care during the week, so he has the pre-made toddler meals by gerber or beachnut. It makes it easier for me and them. Zachary literally eats everything. For breakfast he usually has cereal, oatmeal, cream of wheat, or grits. He loves pasta, fruits, veggies, bread, chicken, ham, beef, you name it and he'll eat it. We recently found out that he loves black olives.

Mine eats mostly what we eat, she loves chili, lasagna, stir fry, meatloaf, fish, beef, pork, fruits veggies if cooked, mostly anything! Yogurt, cottage cheese, regular cheese,raisins, prunes, dried any type of fruit....
I don't do 'meals' for her per say, just feed her something whenever we eat. Sometimes it's what we eat, sometimes it's something snack-like.
