Breakfast: muesli (only ate half); half banana; mango. Then some toast scavenged from the neighbours (this is a regular occurrence. Honestly, they must think I don't give my daughter breakfast ::) )
Snack: banana walnut muffin.
Lunch: Vegetable soup; cheese, tomato and spring onion scones with coriander pesto.
Snack: Crackers; soy milk
Dinner: Spaghetti carbonara; cucumber; one piece each of broccoli and cauliflower. Jackfruit and watermelon.

Breakfast: 2 weetabix, toast and honey
Snack:  Biscuit and water at play group
Lunch: Breaded cod (adult sized), sweetcorn and green beans, two bowls of full fat strawberry yoghurt
Snack:  Milk
Tea: Sausage casserole (recipe to follow soon on my blog) and garlic bread

I think he's on a growth spurt, this is a lot even for him and everything was finished.  Yesterday he came back from nursery after three meals (and seconds) and had a pate sandwich and some "eat your greens" soup (recipe to follow soon on my blog.)

I am pretty sure we are in a growth spurt over here, the amount of food eaten today was crazy!

Breakfast: one large pumpkin-oatmeal pancake
Snack: almond milk
Lunch: 2 turkey and avocado sandwiches (he was asking for another one and was angry I didn't have one ready, so I figured to see how much more he'd eat -- he polished off two no problem)
Snack: cheerios
Dinner: Bowl of rice pasta with tomato sauce, rotisserie chicken, and homemade applesauce

Hello, I'm new here :) I thought it would be great to record what my  newly turned 12 month old was eating in a day. She's on the smaller side but quite enjoys her food!
Early morning 6am- breastfeed
Breakfast 8am- 1 organic weetbix with whole milk. Half a slice of fruit toast (picked at).
Morning tea 10am- breastfeed ( didn't take much, fell asleep)
Lunch approx 12.30- fresh blueberries cut up (devoured them!) , probably a quarter of a banana, baby low sugar yoghurt - half a small tub, some shredded cheese ( she loves cheese), a bit of whole milk in a sippy cup. Half of a whole grain slice of bread with vegemite which was just picked at ( was not into lunch today!)
Snack approx 2.30- rice cracker, breastfeed
Dinner approx 5.30- homemade spaghetti bolognaise with lots of spinach, carrot, tomato, etc in the mince. Fresh ravioli pasta to go with it (she ate most of a baby portion). Some more blueberries ( maybe 10 cut up) some slices of banana, a small dollar sized pikelet, some grated cheese. Water to drink
Supper:- approx 7pm, breastfeed
Will then breastfeed again maybe once during the night ( which I don't mind:)
I look forward to posting more of Eloise's food intake which is usually a bit more varied than today!:)

Audrey is often not a big breakfast person but she had a couple of spoons of porridge, like 10 Cheerios, a couple bites of banana

Lunch she had a big portion of spinach (wilted in butter), egg-fried rice, a couple of dried apricots and a pear.

For dinner she had a portion of 'egg roll in a bowl' (ground pork cooked up with a ton of fine diced/grated veggies with asian spices) over egg noodles. Ate loads and had a second helping. And then a little bowl of natural yoghurt (full fat) with a squirt of strawberry/peach puree in.

well- i wasn't at home today- but yesterday he had:

breakfast: 2 mandarins
Morning tea: 2 weetbix and milk, and half a cup of milk (maybe less) (he requested the weetbix!)
Lunch: piece of toast with vegemite- as offerred cheese but didn't eat it
Afternoon tea: Sandwich with gluten free bread (that's my mum's doing ::) apparently wheat will kill you) mashed banana, chicken and unsalted peanut butter
Late afternoon: yoghurt- natural with some fruit
Dinner- wasn't there... so i THIN?K he ate a sausage with some tomato sauce... but cant be certain.

Then he had a yoghurt iceblock and a small piece of chocolate. :-[ it's easter...

He went to mum's for the afternoon yesterday- hence the sandwich. Usually with me he tends to graze all day. We are often out too so he has little bits here and there. I usually offer fruit, cheese, yoghurt, toast with vegemite cut into shapes like dinosaurs and puzzles.

Another favourite snack to graze on is steamed carrot rounds... they sometimes go down a treat!

ooh good ideas for my baby...steamed carrots that's a good one for a snack since they are naturally sweet. DD loves peas too.

i am pretty much running out of food at my house but my DS was home sick last 2 days so not able to run to store.

our day has just begun but so far she has had:
Breakfast: BF, cheerios in milk (trying to get her to use a spoon - somewhat successful!), dried blueberries, hard boiled egg
lunch:  i'm going to makes some spinach like anna since i have some i need to use up! thx for that idea! ...the egg roll in a bowl sounds delish!
dinner: we are going out to eat for DH's bday

katy - DD figured out quickly how to open easter eggs and ate a peanut butter egg under her grandad's watch! so i guess no point in me delaying peanut butter anymore! need to give her another taste to make sure she is not allergic (my DS has a tree nut allergy)

So far he's had:

B: Dry Rice Krispies multigrain and a cup of milk (he's going through a dry cereal phase)
Refused snack (breakfast was late, he didn't get up till 7!!!)
L: Home made pizza, he chose and put on the toppings (sweetcorn and prawns) http://mamacook.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/wholemeal-pizza-for-whole-family-loads.html
He's gone to a party with his Daddy this afternoon so he'll be filling up on rubbish and I'm not sure if he'll want tea but if he does I'm making him a pork mini meatloaf with pesto in it (recipe soon) as I figure it will probably be good cold tomorrow if he doesn't want it today.
