This topic has probably been discussed before, but how much solid food does your baby eat in one sitting? Connor eats a lot of different foods but he doesn't eat a lot of it at a time. He often only has a few bites of something and then he's fussing to come out of his highchair. The only thing he would eat continuously is banana but I don't want him to eat only that.
Summer was mostly doing purees, 3 jars a day. Now she will hardly eat for me I think she got used to the puffs and goldfish that she prefers to feed herself now. This makes it difficult because she does want what we're eating but we don't have the best of diets so its hard to always share :/
Emily eats jarred food at school 2x a day and either pureed food for dinner or whatever we're having. She also gets 3-4 5oz bottles, puffs and other bits of food throughout the day. We don't have much of a problem with her turning away food - the kid loves to eat! She actually throws fits sometimes when her food is gone or I cut her off.
Usually bits of what we're eating. Breakfast tends to be fruit (bits of pear, nectarine, etc.) or a 'toddler muffin' (has squash carrots and banana), lunch is oatmeal (like a package of it), and dinner is what we are having or if its not appropriate, a pouch, and then apple sauce for dessert. He also has cheerios as a snack throughout the day.
Jack eats really well most of the time. He honestly eats anything we put in front of him, but the amount changes depending on his mood. We do a combo of pureed foods (from the pouch) and table food, with the majority being table food.
He eats three times a day (varying amounts though) and snacks of Cheerios, yogurt melts, graham crackers, or fruit throughout the day. He still nursing and taking bottled breast milk during the day a lot too!
Mine has started eating his pureed food at such a slow pace that I get tired of feeding him for close to an hour in one sitting. I think instead of refusing, this is his polite way to indicate that he does not want to eat. Oh well, he will start eating whenever he feels like
Breakfast - 2-5oz formula and a serving of baby cereal or Oatibix, if she's still hungry she might also get a yogurt or a few "soldiers" of toast.
Lunch - 1 savoury baby food jar and 1 fruit pot / yogurt / sweet baby food jar plus finger food snacks (these can include corn snacks, biscuits, pieces of banana, soft cooked pieces of broccoli, carrot etc, garlic bread, pizza, cheese...) and baby fruit juice.
Dinner - As lunch. Sometimes she has a serving of "pureed with bits" version of what we are having, if we are having a meat-veg-carbs combination.
Supper - 3-5oz formula plus usually a yogurt or fruit pot.
She has juice throughout the day and is given finger food when suitable finger food is being eaten by other people, however the finger food after meals and throughout the day is really just for fun and practice and she usually picks at it and plays with it rather than eating it all.
