I am having about 3 one year olds at my wedding. I do not know what one year olds eat. They are too old to eat baby food but can’t only eat only little bits of solid foods? Do they require a kids meal at a reception? Did anyone have one year olds at your wedding? What did you feed them?

Bored6: When my kids were that age and we were eating out, I often just fed them off my plate because they ate so little. Have you asked the parents?

I have an 11 month old, and I just share my food with her. She isn’t picky at all, and she loves things like chicken, pork, broccoli, sweet potatoes, etc. I would probably just leave it up to the parents to figure out what their babies will do for dinner. They will likely bring food along with them or just share their food.
Also, my baby’s diet still heavily consists of formula/breastmilk.

julies1949: I am getting married in July of 2015. My son is 5 months old now but by the time of the wedding he will be 15 months so will the other two babies. I’m not sure if it’s worth paying extra to have kids meals for them since I know they will not eat most of it.

No need to order them a kids meal if the parents are fine with feeding them off their plate, I always did.
May be ask the parents if they are fine with it, I am sure they will appreciate you accommodating the little ones

If I were attending a wedding with a one-year-old, I would not expect the couple to provide a meal for them. I’d either bring my own food along for them, or feed them off my plate.

At our wedding we provided smaller children’s meals for the children aged nearly 2. Any children younger than that, food was provided by the parents.
If I had a 1 year old at a wedding, I would be bringing food for them as well as potentially preparing to feed it with food from my own plate.

I had a ton of kids at my wedding everywhere from 1 month to 14 and I didn’t do a separate children’s meal The babies were still getting milk or baby food that I expected parents to bring (which they did with no problem). The kids that were beyond baby food ate off their parents plate (this was easy because we had a buffet). Older kids got their own plate of food like the adults. I’m a big fan of kids eating regular food, so I’m not a big fan of kids meals. Plus they’re usually not very healthy.

Bored6: The parents brought snacks like puffs for my nieces and nephews and then the kids ate dinner off of the parents plates. I just purposely sat less people at those tables so the parents had room to spread out. When my cousin got married and my almost 2 year old niece was the flower girl they gave her a seperate meal of chicken fingers which she didn’t touch.

I have a 1 year old and he pretty much just eats off our plates. I had a ton of kids at my wedding but didn’t go with the kids meal… I didn’t pay the full plate price, I paid kids prices because I guess they got less… but my caterer adviced me to just go with he same food the adults were eating, just made things easier and it worked out beutifuly for us because some of the kids didn’t eat their meals and so the extra adults tht showed u were able to get that meal.
We have a wedding in 2 weeks and will be taking the baby and I fully intend to just feed him off my plate… I don’t think the parents would expect a whole separate meal for their ‘toddler”. that would be a waste imo.
