At 11 months (well, 11.5) Dave eats most of what we do. The only things I haven’t introduced yet are peanut butter and fish – and that only because we haven’t had a chance. He still prefers to self-feed, and I’ve begun giving him a plate and a spoon just so he can start getting things figured out. He eats just about everything – but isn’t really a fan of pieces of fresh fruit. I think it’s a texture thing. He’ll chow a pouch of strawberries or blueberries, but doesn’t like eating chunks of them.
His favorite foods:
- Sweet potatoes
- Tomato sauce
- Have I mentioned he likes cheese? 😉
Anyway – here’s an assortment of meals form the last couple weeks or so.
He has what we’re having – which is often eggs. This particular day it was eggs scrambled with broccoli and cheese, roasted sweet potatoes and an Ella’s Kitchen pouch.
This one was a portion of a Plum Organics toddler meal (this one) with some avocado and cheese. I think he had a pouch prior to this as well. We don’t usually do packaged stuff (since we’re usually cooking anyway) but this day got away from me and he wanted lunch NOW.
Grilled cheese, strawberries and a sippy of Tomato/roasted red pepper soup. He wasn’t sure about the soup-in-the-sippy business (this is neither breastmilk nor water Mother, WTH?) , but he chowed the grilled cheese and had some strawberries.
Quesadilla, broccoli and blueberries.
Winter Minestrone topped with parmigiano reggiano w/ strawberries.
Green beans, sweet potatoes, avocado and cream cheese.
So, that’s what Dave’s munching on lately. I’m not sure if it’s normal, but it’s what works for us!
