Now that baby boy is one, we are trying to expand his menu a bit, past the Gerber’s stage 3 foods he has been eating almost exclusively, but I’m finding myself at a loss for what to feed him (especially for lunch) so I thought I’d throw the question out to all of you more experienced mommies: what kinds of things did you feed your 1 year old for lunch?
I want him to eat a healthy, fairly well-balanced diet…no nuts…trying to stay away from eggs right now…but beyond that I’m not sure what to give him! I feel so clueless. So far my only ideas are Annie’s macaroni & cheese, Annie’s spagghetio’s, cut up “quesadilla’s” (tortillas w/ cheese & maybe mashed up black beans), cut up string cheese/crackers/cut up lunch meat, cooked/cut up carrots, baked potatoes, pastas….and I’m out of ideas.
The finger foods he already eats regularly are grapes (cut into eighths), Gerber’s puffs, cheerios, Gerber’s wheels and little crunchers (similar to Veggie Booty), bananas…and that’s about it.
So I’d love to hear from you. What did you do? Thanks!
