Hi everyone. I was just wondering If you can offer suggestions for meals for my LO. Cambria is almost 17 months but didn't even touch "Baby food" till she was 1. She wasn't on it long and I gave her a few bites of our food soon after. She LOVES Pasta ( of course right? ) but I feel like thats all I give her! Oh and she doesn't have a big appetite either. For Instance If I make the Pasta Pick ups that Lil container will last her 2-3 days! For breakfast she gets half a banana and almost a whole container of those Yobaby Yogurts. Fruits she likes mostly everything, Veggies she likes Corn,Peas,Carrot's. Ive given her Lunch meats and small bites of chicken but she chew's them forever and when she goes to swallow she chokes a Lil. Can you guys suggest some Ideas for foods other then Pasta? haha Thanks!
I'm stalking your again. Oliver is a very picky eater too and it can be stressful for me. He will like something one day and not touch it the next 3 times it offered to him.
Does she like bread? You can do grilled cheese. What about soups? She might not eat that since she didn't like pureed foods. Mini pizza? Hummus and pita bread? I'm no help because I struggle to find something to feed Oliver every day. It was so much easier when he was 100% breastfed!
Yep, I just offer Ben whatever we're having, unless I know it's too spicy for him to handle. Sometimes he eats almost nothing, sometimes he gobbles it up. I just try to make it a rule to serve at least something I know he likes. He LOVES spaghetti (and I can sneak some meat into him this way), mac & cheese, chicken, sweet potato fries, etc. He also loves pasta like Cambria, and I usually try to mix in some chopped meat or veggies so he gets those as well.
For breakfast, I usually do whole wheat toast with a tiny bit of jelly, cut into strips. Or dry cereal. Or french toast sticks. Or blueberry pancakes. Or oatmeal. Ben is big on feeding himself, so I can't do a lot of things that have to be spoon fed, but I do give him yogurt every other day or so.
Ben doesn't have the healthiest diet, but I ALWAYS serve him a variety of things, even if I know he won't eat them. He doesn't usually eat his veggies very well, but I always give them to him and sometimes he surprises me! Just be persistent, even when it seems like she isn't eating anything, and try not to be a "short order cook" for her. She won't starve.
