My 15 month old eats what we eat for meals- cut up into small pieces.  So last night she ate small pieces of ham, noodles and green beans.  With some exceptions for choking hazzards they can eat whatever you eat.

By 14 months, babies can for the most part, eat the same things as the rest of the family.

My baby isn’t to the solid food stage yet, but I fully intend to feed him whatever we eat! (Unless we’re eating something super-spicy, or something he can’t have until he’s older like honey.) Just chop/grind it up if need be.

That’s what my sister did with her kids, and they will eat almost anything! They are in the pre-teen/early teen age now, but even when they were younger, they’d eat anything: sushi, clams/mussels, ethiopian cuisine, etc. Because that’s what my sister fed them, there was no “adult food” and “kid food”, just “food”.

@busybride215:  Maybe your baby will be inspiration for you to eat healthier. You can steam a chicken breast or a piece of fish and some veggies in not much longer than it takes to bake a pizza.

@busybride215:  I would suggest him eating what y’all eat.  I understand that with work schedules and what not that you nutrition habits are not currently what you want him to have.  Now is the time to change that.  He is at the age now where he is forming ideas of what meal time looks like.  If you use this opportunity to start preparing traditional meals,it will be much better for his long term eating habits.  My girls are the least pickiest eaters I have ever seen at six and four, and I wholeheartedly believe it is because we had them eating what we were eating from a young age.

My son was very picky with the texture of foods for a while

a quick and easy recipe I found in a baby cook book was 

 

Baked beans and pumpkin 

1/2 cup cooked pumpkin

1/2 cup of baked beans

1 tablespoon of grated cheese sprinkled on top

heat in microwave 1 minute  

 

Scrambled eggs  

1 egg in a small bowl

approx  half cup of milk 

whisk with a fork 

heat in microwave for 2 mins 

 

minced meat with pasta 

add to cooked mince carrots ,capsicums (red peppers) , onions 

 

cook some penne pasta ad your baby can play with it and feed it themselves

Try to eat healthier and let him eat what y’all eat. I was doing that as well, until I put my foot down. She can’t eat healthy unless she sees me doing it as well. Just letting her eat it is good, but not enough. I don’t even eat pizza now unless it’s a special occasion.

Try to stock you pantry with a lot of things to make veggies more enticing. We always have a meat and veggie for dinner. I buy the Green Giant frozen ones, so most times I toss them in the microwave and I cook enough meat for 2 days, so the next day, I can just warm up left overs. It’s hard coming hom from work, then working out and finally cooking every night!

I hope that helped a little!

My son is 15 months old and we keep a variety of frozen vegetables that we cook up for him.  You can always give your child fruit to.  We don’t eat the best either but I tend to make sure have all kinds of nutrionial stuff for him on hand.

my 14 month old eats exactly what we eat with some exceptions ofcourse but for the most part we always have some part of the meal he can have. i even have made homemade chinese food that he eats. i think it good to get them use to different flavour and foods now while they will eat almost everything.
