Actually, at age 1, my kids were eating adult food, minus the chilli. They didn't really eat anything different for dinner.

For lunch, sometimes no adults, so they eat different food. This is what my 14 mth old eats usually:

1) Chicken/pork macaroni
2) Spaghetti with beef or sausages with carrots, broccoli
3) Fish and chips
4) Porridge (chicken, pork, fish)
5) Fried Rice (with egg, sausage, some vege, fishballs)
6) Bee hoon/mee swa with fish slices and vege;
7) Greek chicken (can find in this website under slow cooker recipes) and
7) Steamed fish with rice & some vegs

These are all I can think of at the moment, but the above are generally liked by her. Smile

HTH!

unless your child have certain food allergies, you should let him/her try all kinds of food. However, should not add too much seasonings.

And fish balls are still a no-no unless you had it cut into smaller pieces.

Like my nephew has egg allergy..he only started eating eggs when he was 3 years old.

Wow.....Sashimi, your 14 y.o kid is eating almost like adult food leh.
My 18/19 months old boy is basically taking cereal in the morning & porridge or rice in the afternoon n evening.
Basically, it's porridge with pumpkins which I always buy n with fish etc. Sometimes, if my mum cook rice, then he will eat rice with soup etc.

Hi Karrine

Yup, my 14 mth old has been eating our food since she was about 9 - 10 months. She's a foodie like me, what to do? Embarassed

On my part, I also couldn't wait to start her on our normal food, so much more convenient!

Melisa

its better to start them young to learn to enjoy food..all kinds. so they are not spoilt on kiddie food always or fast foods. when you have to travel for leisure, it makes more sense.

imagine lugging around big and small containers of home cooked porridge or Heinz baby foods.. island

Actually,
I'm a lazy mother. I don't bring porridge out for him whenever we go out for dinner. I just feed him whatever he can eat too.
I don't cook at home, so he's at my mum's place during day-time n usually eat whatever my mum cooks for my niece n nephew...no seperate food for him too. If he can eat, we'll feed him too.
He's now always asking for sweets.......how huh?

Sometimes I give... some battles are not worth fighting. :roll: Maybe compromise by giving only one sweet, and try to find healthier sweets (if there is such a thing).

I am guilty of bribing my kids quite a bit.. hee hee... what to do? Sometimes, I just don't have the energy to argue/persuade them!

True loh, I think there are some healthier gummies. But I heard it's not so good for them to eat gummies as they cant chew very well n may lead to indigestion. I just bought him a bottle of Multi-Vitamins last week from Pharmacy. cost me $25++..It's in tablets, luckily he knows how to suck them. It's recommended for kids below 4 years..

I'm taking those Lakerol/Ricola gummies type of sugar-free sweet n he always ask for that, knowing my bag has it...but I dun dare to let him have too much, as sugar free usually contains something else.

Haiiiiii.......they always have it one after another......

As an alternative, I give biscuits! Small ones, like those goldfish biscuits (soup crackers). Healthier also, I feel.

Can try that?
