What is everyone feeding their 10 month old babies?

I give my boy baby Muesli with mixed fruit for breakfast, and for dinner its a mix mash of Pumkin, Sweet potato, Zuccini, Carrot and Chicken. Im stuck for ideas for lunch. He also loves cheese mixed in it too! I dont want him to get bored of what im giving him, and am looking for some little meals that i can freeze. Got any good recipies?

our little guy eats whatever we eat.
Breakfast- try to do infant cereal (as he is transitioning to whole milk and need the iron), whatever fruit we have - peaches,pears,strawberries,blueberries, watermelon,avocado, oranges,grapes don't think these much he hasn't had, pancakes, french toast, waffles (NO BUTTER)
Lunch-pasta or some kind of noodle (macaroni or spirals, or shells -that he can do himself) with some sort of veggie or homemade soups
Supper - whatever we have chicken, beef, pork (he hasn't had fish yet) potato
Snacks- gerber puffs, cheerios, cheese, fruit, arrowroot cookies, mum mums,
he seems more interested if he can do it himself so right now he gets anything that can be in pieces for him to do
We do 95% homemade he does not like "baby" food never has with the exception of prunes and an organic turkey veg casserole
He also gets 4oz formula at breakfast, 8oz whole milk at nap time and 8 oz formula before bedtime and water or very diluted juice all throughout the day in a sippy cup
Good Luck -the more they try now the more they like when they are older

We were given a recipe book by my sister when I first had my DD. It is great - Annabel Karmel - Top 100 baby puree's. The meals are soo good my hubby and I are tempted to eat it as well. We freeze in ice-cube containers and pull out 2 or 3 depending on if it is for dinner or lunch. It also helps us with managing what we are eating - she does also get a helping of our meal too... One thing is for certain, my sweetheart isn't shy about food! :0)

Aaron likes to eat anything that he can feed himself. He is on a three meal a day schedule with breastfeeding along with each of them. Our meals go something like this:

Breakfast: Waffle, french toast, pancake, or oatmeal. Fruit: watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, etc (he like them all) and a yogurt.

Lunch and Dinner (like Elizabeth, these meals are very similar for us): Either pasta or a vegetarian chicken patty (he loves these); fruit and vegetable. For vegetable, I roast up sweet potatos, carrots, broccoli, peppers (whatever I have on hand, really) and dice them up after they cool. He also really enjoys diced avacodo with a splash of lime or lemon juice.

When we go out, I use the Gerber Pasta pick-ups because they are so easy. I also use pre-diced fruit and veggies when we go out. But in general I *try* to use fresh stuff. It's not always that easy! I have an older daughter and sometimes it feels like all three meals are thrown together very quickly! I've found that he eats much better when he is able to feed himself. He also does a great job of eating just about anything that we are trying. he loves pizza and spaghetti. I've been trying more often than not to feed him what I am making for the rest of family. It's easier on me and it gets him used to the food that the rest of the family is enjoying. :-)

Great post, by the way. I'm sure we all could use a little more variety in the kitchen! Thanks!

We are transitioning to almost all feed-yourself foods. I've been really surprised at the variety of things my daughter will try - I probably wouldn't be so adventurous with her menu, being a first-time mom, but at daycare she gets everything from homemade chicken noodle soup to fish sticks. Now i just try new things and see what she likes.

Breakfast: waffles, french toast sticks (a little butter, no syrup), breakfast bars broken into smallish pieces, muffins broken into smaller pieces, fruit - halved blueberries, quartered grapes, cherries, strawberries.

Lunch and dinner: I group these together because we do similar things for both meals. I try to get a protein, a veggie or two and a fruit at each - not always easy (and not always successful) but we try. Since Katie eats earlier than we do most weeknights, she usually gets microwaved leftovers (we eat a lot of leftovers these days, too!).

Macaroni and cheese, noodle casserole (egg noodles with frozen mixed vegetables and tuna fish or browned drained lean beef or turkey, with a little cream of mushroom soup and covered with cheese, baked), homemade spaghetti sauce & meatballs (LOVES this!), lima beans, frozen veggies microwaved until soft - corn, peas, mixed vetegables, corn. If we have a roast or pork chops, I cut up some into very small pieces that she can gum - like 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch maximum - sometimes mix them with mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, and she feeds herself (messy but fun). We also do a lot of cheese and yogurt. For "dessert" we do canned pears or another fruit. Seriously, I've found that she can eat almost everything that we do - except green salads and uncooked veggies.

For breakfast I have been doing friuts sliced strawberries, watermelon & mandarin oranges. Lunch I give fish sticks, cheese, apple sauce, french fries, cheese pizza. For dinner I pretty much give him whatever we eat minus the meat if it's not fish. Green beans sweet potatoes,pasta & beans are good choices too....

Yogurt and a waffle are big pleasers in my household. Scrambled eggs are nice too. I am glad you posted this because I feel like I get in a rut with choices also. My pediatrician just suggested turkey meatballs too. I think I'm gonna try that this week.

Breakfast-Oatmeal and applesauce

Lunch-Freezer surprise (i freeze mixed leftovers-usually chicken/pork/beef w/rice beans and others have green beans, peas, zuchinni, carrots)

Lunch may also just be a bottle if its nap time.

Dinner- we usually give him whatever we are eating for dinner- I've been tryin to get him to self feed.

I also like to give him fruit cocktail- its lil peices of diff fruits. he loves it.
