Well! We usually just go with the flow and what we have in the house! I shop week by week, so sometimes I run out of things by Thursday! So She eats stuff like ravioli, I usually rinse the sauce off, grits, fruit, cheese, lunchables, and really just anything that isn't seasoned or fried or anything like that.

Hi, my youngest just turned 12 months. I feed her steamed or mashed potatoes, fish, canned green beans without salt, mixed canned veg that are sodium reduced or sodium free, different pasta shapes, poached chicken meatballs. I make enough at supper to give her leftovers for lunch so it's not too time-consuming to make lunch. I hate meal prep so once a day works better for me. i also make home made mac and cheese and she loves it. Basically, anything that is fairly soft in texture is fair game.

My daughter (16 months)is in daycare all day and when she started eating regular food, I asked the daycare what people send in & they said the best is just leftovers from dinner the day before. My daughter isn't too big on the whole meat thing alot, but she'll eat it if she has cottage cheese- I guess so it's not so dry- I've used applesauce also. She's not much of a dinner eater at times, but I've notice that has alot to do with how late she's getting dinner. Chicken nuggets are great, cheese sticks, yogurt, my daughter won't go a day without a banana, just experiment. Also remember just because your LO doesn't like something today, doesn't mean it won't be their favorite next week.

My son is 16 months old and has a huge fruit tooth. His lunches normally consist of yogurt (Dannon has those danimal yogurts in a 2 ounce size) cheese cubes, grapes and pretzel sticks. Some days when he's really hungery he'll have a cheese sandwhich or if i'm feeling adventurous I make him the Tyson Dinosaur chicken nuggets. He loves those. I however seem to have the opposite problem in times of eating. He pecks at breakfast, eats well at lunch and then normally devours dinner.

same here on the ketchup! She loves to dip her food, even if it is gross to us. Sometimes just putting ketchup on the plate makes a world of difference.

Bobby loves mac and cheese. He too doesn't like to eat at dinner time. He'll eat breakfast great, lunch okay, and then dinner is hit and miss. He loves cheese and crackers too. So if I can't get him to eat what we have I at least get him to eat something. Also he loves ketchup so sometime just putting a bit of that on his plate will get him to eat whatever it is. I also trick him by giving him a few tortilla chips and letting him think his food is dip (he loves to dip stuff). He'll eat an entire bowl of hamb. helper if he can dip it.

I have a 19 month old who is in daycare all week. I send the toddler graduate meals just to make easier on the staff. And she also likes yogurt and cheese sticks.

She has also started to eat pb&j on toast. Won't eat it unless it is toasted.

Something else I have started to do to try and get a little better food in her is to buy some of the soups like curly chicken noodle or vegetable, something with some substance in it and then after heating it up just drain out the liquid. It works pretty good.

Also at Wal-mart you can buy these long skinny lunchables that have toddler size crackers, ham, and cheese. Wal-mart also has corn, carrots, and green beans separately in little plastic microwavable containers. They come in 4 packs like the diced fruit bowls. Which I also buy, she loves the mandarin oranges.

Even though I know it isn't the best food in the world I also buy the $1 Banquet microwave meals just to have on hand when I need something quick.

Apparently, it isn't uncommon for them to not eat much at dinner. Abby doesn't either. They get most of their nutrition and food from breakfast and lunch.

I have an almost 3 year old and an 17 month old. Both my kids eat wonderfully at breakfast and lunch, but come dinner time getting them to eat anything is a fight. I think it is just timing for us. We try to eat as a family, and that means putting dinner off until after 7 for my husband to get home. I don't see anything wrong with giving them yogurt or breakfast foods if they want it. Also, everything seems to taste better coming off your plate. The transition from formula to whole milk was hard for both my kids, too.

Hey there, how are you? I do even dinner foods for lunch. Chicken cut up, pastas, rice, potatoes sweet/baked cut up or mashed, pretty much anything we eat cut up into smaller pieces. My rule is to give her what I am eating and then one thing she defininitely likes.

NO EXCUSES

Hey wonderful ladies! I though I would give it a try and come ask all/any of you for idea what to feed my almost 11 month old son (will be 11 mos on the 26) for LUNCH?! I give him something to eat while everyone else is eating lunch. I already give him plain piece of bread, cheese sandwich, and cereal, and hot dogs (of course all cut up to right size). I am tired of giving him the same things over and over again and have actually stopped giving him cereal because he gets that in morning for breakfast. So any ideas?!

and the other Q is he eats adult breakfast foods and adult lunch foods (by adult I mean stuff we eat not baby food) just fine but why is it for DINNER most the time he wants NOTHING to do with adult food?? There will be rare occasions where he eats it but then next time you try that same food or any other adult food he wont have it. Why is that?!

Thanks to any who give opinions!! :)
