Eli is 17 months old now. He eats like a champ. When he first started eating foods at 6 months (when he could sit up, showed an interest and didn’t tongue thrust). We decided to give him chunks of food instead of puree-ing everything, and we skipped baby cereal altogether. It worked very well for us – and we never had a choking problem.
Cheese & Salsa Quesadillas
Scrambled Eggs & Apple
Mandarin Oranges, Watermelon, Pineapple, Mangoes, Grapes, Raspberries, Peaches, Blueberries. He doesn’t seem to care for Strawberries.
Sweet Potatoes, whole peas, carrots, avocado
Spaghetti & Sauce (any pasta really)
Toast and muffins.
Cheerios, Shreddies, Pretzels, Raisins, unsalted tops.
Cheese (Havarti is his favourite)
Chicken, Ham, Fish, Pork, Beef….. Bacon!
He is so excited to use a fork or spoon. And yes, he’s had a lick or few of ice cream.
He still nurses throughout the day, drinks milk, water and sometimes OJ.
*Note: Eli also gets a daily serving of dirt. This may or may not include twigs and bugs.
