Re: Please help me feed my 1yo.

I run into this problem, too. My DS just would rather nurse than eat, still! We feed him frozen multi-grain blueberry waffles (thawed, of course), bananas, cheese cubes or slices or sticks (he seems to like mozarella best because it's mild), yogurt with maple syrup, applesauce, cut up fruit (though half the time he won't eat it), any type of bread (I try to stick with whole grains), Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, gerber fruit melts, graham crackers, carrot and broccoli sticks, homemade french "fries" (I have an awesome recipe--we love them too-- cut your potato into sticks, toss in beaten egg white, sprinkle with paprika and a small amount of salt--bake in 400 degree oven until crisp--these freeze REALLY well and you can just reheat in the toaster oven), and he gets anything we are eating-- beans, cornbread, baked or grilled chicken or fish, corn, peas, green beans, oranges, eggs, etc...

Re: Please help me feed my 1yo.

My son HATED anything pureed or anything he had to eat off of a spoon. Then, one day, he just started liking them again. I think he was just trying so hard to be independent and wanted to feed himself, but still wasn't sold on the whole "solid food" concept. Have you tried letting her feed herself with her own spoon? It's messy, but fun for them.

He loves yogurt. I no longer make any pureed food for him (like I did when we first started out) but still buy those organic food pouches and he likes those occasionally.

Usually, though, he just eats random bits of whatever. He loves his fruits (especially blueberries, cherries, and watermelon) and veggies (especially broccoli, green beans, spinach). He likes bits of meat, and beans. CHEESE! Bits of quesadillas. He still loves puffs (we buy the HappyBaby ones, they're organic and have whole grains and some good stuff in them). I just bought their yogurt melts and they are yummy and he loves them, they're a nice little treat (we got the berry kind). Oh, and he likes scrambled eggs... I haven't done egg whites yet, but I've done the yolks with some cheese, pepper, and sometimes spinach. Loves that.

Usually just whatever we're having, or simple things that are quick to make. I like to buy organic frozen veggies, they are quick to heat up and nice to add to what we're eating.

This is a good idea (freezing the pancakes). My son loves my whole wheat blueberry pancakes, so next time I might double the batch and then freeze them.

My ds also likes frosted mini wheats soaked in milk. It's a favorite of everyone in the house though lol!

Applesauce and goldfish crackers, kashi soft cereal bars, the crust from dd and ds pb&js cubed. He drinks whole milk too, which is nice and filling also. Maybe your milk isn't as fatty now? Still nutritious but not as filling?

I had never thought of this...

I just read a study but I don't remember who referred me to it...maybe the Ds bf'ing threads??? Anyway the abstract showed this not happening and I believe that the milk was more nutrient dense after the first year. I will look for it...

I know it was found to be higher energy(calorie), but I don't remember about fat content....

OP, thanks for this thread, the responses reminded me I had a big ol' mango on the counter for James!

My almost 1 year old just got back into purees and yogurts and things because she learned to USE A SPOON HERSELF!! It was only really messy for about 2 weeks, but now she's really good at it!

Yes maybe this is part of it. She loves using a fork or spoon but isnt quite skilled yet. She uses the spoon with one hand and picks up food with the other hand .
