As you know, my baby boy turned 1 a few weeks ago! Which meals no more formula! It also means, I have one more person to think about at meal time! I have to admit, I already miss the convenience (and easy cleanup) of formula!
He had been eating finger foods for a few months now, but more as snacks than on a regular basis. So when my doctor stressed the importance of feeding him a balanced diet along with whole milk, I was a little intimidated! So I came home and what else.... googled! I found tons of meal ideas for 1 year olds, but I decided to compile a list of all the options in one place and use it to make meal decicions! It's also a nice thing to have when my hubby is home alone with the little mr. and need ideas for what to feed him.
I usually choose 1 thing from 2-3 of the groups for each meal. Now keep in mind that these are all things that MY little boy can eat, he has no allergies (that we know of) and he has about 6-7 teeth now. I know some doctors don't agree with eggs or peanut butter before age 2, so if that's the case for you, just cross them off. If you have any other ideas of what to feed little ones, I would LOVE to hear them!
All I did was Slip this list into a sheet protector (totally optional) and tapes it up into the 'baby' cupboard, where we keep all the sippy cups/bibs and stuff like that.
*Remember to ALWAY cut up food small enough and cook it well enough for your little one to eat!*
