Food diary of a 10 month old

Before I start I just want to make clear I am not the mom police, this post is not here to tell you what and when to feed your child. I spend a lot of time reading up on what other moms do to get ideas for myself, so I thought I’d write a post to help anyone like me wondering what everyone else is feeding their children.

Ava is just over 10 months old and this is what she has on an average day. We do baby led weaning so everything is suitable for that, we do however help her out and spoon feed her when it comes to eating trickier things like Weetabix and yoghurt, this way works out best for us, nothing is puréed.Our main meals are usually home cooked purely because I enjoy cooking.She is offered water throughout the day and at lunch and dinner times.

Breakfast

Weekdays

Cereal – usually shredded wheat/shreddies/cheerios

Fruit

7oz formula

Other ideas – Toast/porridge/eggs/eggy bread/porridge fingers/pancakes

Lunch

My go to lunch

Cheese spread sandwich

Veg or fruit – usually tomatoes

A few veg crisps, normally the organix ones

yoghurt.

Other ideas – pasta with hidden veg sauce/cheese sauce, omelette, savoury muffins, savoury scones, savoury rice cakes and cheese.

Dinner

Ava has whatever we eat as long as it’s suitable, I freeze a lot of things like spaghetti Bolognese, chilli, cottage pie,tuna croquettes and stew in Ava sized portions for the days when she can’t have our dinner.

We normally give her a fruit pouch or a Ella’s kitchen pudding for desert.

Bedtime

7oz bottle of formula

Emergency/can’t be arsed days

We all have those days when we can’t be bothered or we are too busy and don’t have time to cook up a meal. For those days I keep the freezer stocked with things like fish fingers, flipper dippers, waffles, ready cooked chicken and lots of frozen veg. I keep some tins of vegetable ravioli in the cupboard for quick lunches too.

I also like to keep things like ricecakes and baby biscuits on hand too for emergency meltdown situations.

If there’s any recipes you’d like to see or have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for reading

Love Amy xx
