I have an 11 month old and was just wanting to compare her eating habits with other children her age. Thanks

My son will be a year on November 11. This is what his eating schedule looks like right now:

7:30 am - 10 ounce bottle (sometimes a little more) with 1/2 water and 1/2 milk
9:00 am - breakfast - a piece of toast with a fruit on the side, or oatmeal with fruit, usually a toddler sized bowl
10:30 am or 11:00 am - snack - fruit or veggie or something like that
12:30ish - lunch - a full meal, like spaghetti, or chicken and veggies or something
1:00pm - bottle with 1/2 milk and 1/2 water, around 8 ounces.
5:00pm - supper - whatever we are having, and he usually eats A LOT
7:00 pm - a snack, veggies usually
8:30 pm - nighttime bottle - 1/2 milk and 1/2 water again, 10-12 ounces

Like Trich, i feel like my son is a never ending hole!! He will ear anything and everything you put in front of him, and more! He's drinking water often, usually with each snack and meal, from a cup and straw (no sippy cup here, he never figured them out!).

I have been unable to find a food that Wes doesn't like - and I am totally serious. He eats everything from spicy food to brussel sprouts!!!

My son is like a never ending pit..... for brekkie he usually has weetabix, fruit and a tub of Yoghurt and sometimes some of my toast... then he has a cruskit, cheese stick or corn cake durning the morning. lunch is usually a Vegimite sandwich or home cooked food of spag bol, casseroles etc etc and some fruit, then he usually has a fruit bar or vegetmite and cheese rusk, then dinner he has home cooked food again, fish chowder or some of what we are having, plus about 100mls of Water from his sippy cup (im still having trouble getting him to drink water) and 4 bottles of Formula of 200mls. and then if im eating anything he usually wants that too...

My daughter has porridge or Weetabix for breakfast,either picky bits for lunch or a jar, in between she will have cheese strings, she loves white buttons and bananas. For tea she will have what we are having or something that we had the day before which i blend for her( spaghetti bolognaise or veggies and meat) followed by a yoghurt. She still has 2-3 bottles a day and loves her water from her sippy cup.

My daughter is still breastfed as well, and she eats pretty much anything she can feed herself! She was mostlydone with being spoonfed pureed stuff by about 9 1/2 months. She does tolerate us feeding her yogurt in the morning though. She typically nurses on waking, and about an hour later has either yogurt with cheerios, or if I have the time, pancakes or waffles cut into bite sized pieces. Lunch is usually cheesy toast or mac'n cheese followed by some type of fruit...blueberries, raspberries or grapes are her favorites. for dinner, she just eats whatever we're having - I just have to give her the veggies 1st, by themselves, or she won't touch them. She LOVES any type of meal that involves some type of ground beef ( shepard's pie, spaghetti with meatballs, meatloaf, baked rigatonia, etc), but she'll eat chicken and ham as well. She had steak for the 1st time tonight and loved it! Throughout the day she usually has 2 snacks - usually fruit (oranges, berries or peaches) and she drinks water from her sippy cup with all her meals and snacks. She now only nurses about 3 or 4 times a day.

Oh, thought I should add..,she is pretty much gumming this stuff, since she only just recently got her 1st tooth (and 3 more seem to be starting to poke through!)

my daughter is 11 and half months, and has been eating our food from about 7 months, i did this early with her cos she could chew although had no teeth (now has 4) i made the mistake with her brother leaving him on jars too long and he is a really fussy eater.

Up until the last week she was also still having formula too, but now she has toast for breakfast, and a 6oz bottle of formula, for lunch she will have a sandwich and fruit, possibly during the morning she will between 4 and 5oz of our milk, for evening meal she has wotever we are having her fave though is anything with chicken, wether it be chicken, chicken nuggets chicken burger anything with chicken, she has a sleep after lunch and will have 4 to 5oz of our milk before her sleep, then wen she goes to bed she will have 6oz of formula milk. Every child is different and i sometimes think my little one eats more than my 6 year old son at times, as long as she/he is healthy and growing and putting on weight evenlly there shouldnt be a problem
