    Default Ideas for a 1 yr old

    So my baby is gonna be one tomorrow. Makes me cry!!! But my question is what are some ideas for meals and snacks to feed her. I'm having a brain fart I guess. She eats banannas, cheese, mac n cheese, crackers. But other than that she has her gerber graduates for dinner and lunch( that I stock up on when they are on sale) She only has 2 teeth, we eat a lot of chicken and she can't chew that.
    I don't know, Help!!!!!

    Here in Holland they have mini rice cakes (I think that's what they're called in English) for little kids. My boys just loved them.

    What about a grated apple or yogurt?

    It seems like ages since my 2 boys were that young. I can't remember what else.

    Baked sweet potatoes mashed or cut in chunks, soft and gently seasoned chicken salad alone or on bread might work. My DS loved canned green beans at that age, he ate them cold with his fingers.

    At that age, I gave DS pears that were cut up really small (they're softer than apples), strawberries, peaches, melon, any veggie that was steamed until soft (I would steam baby carrots and he would eat them with his fingers - even ate them cold).

    I would take some small pieces of chicken (like super super small) and use my food chopper and chop up some veggies, chicken, add a little broth or cottage cheese....and spoon feed that to him.

    He loved lasagna and ziti, just cut it up super small.

    If I think of anything I'll come back and post..

    pretty much any kind of casserole - as they usually come out pretty soft.

    Just about anything you eat, just watch the consistency and size. Frozen peas can be great finger food.

    My son loves french toast sticks for breakfast. He eats most veggies and some I do blend, baked or mashed potatoes, or fries. He loves beans and eats cut up soft fruit. Chicken nuggets and fish sticks cut up small and pasta,ravoli, applesauce, pizza, toast and peanut butter. He can eat just about what we eat now

    Cheerios (or the generic equivalent) work great! Also, my kids and now my grandson loved to be able to "dip". I'd give them a piece of lightly toasted bread cut into four stips and some hummus to dip it in.

    Grapes cut in half, pears pealed and cut into shoe-strings, lima beans (or any other kind of bean), nectarine wedges cut into thirds, etc all make great little snacks in addition to what you mentioned.

    I never gave my kids store-bought baby food. I just mashed up what-ever we were having. I think that's why they weren't ever picky eaters (and they developed early a taste for garlic!).

    It's amazing what one-year-olds can eat with two or three teeth!

    My son loved mandarin oranges at that age! Also those Gerber "puffs" but any puffed cereal or cheerios works just as well.

    He was more into eating what we were eating, so he didn't eat those graduates meals at all. I just cut his food up really tiny and he ate it that way.

    I always just ground up what ever we were eating. . . chicken livers will mash with a fork after you boil them. . . chicken thighs are moist, and I'd just grind them a bit in a meat grinder.

    Soft fruits, such as ripe peaches, bananas, etc.

    I'd mix ground turkey, broth, rice and carrots for a baby dinner.
