Can you tell me if the meal routine I've been doing with my son is ok? I realize at this age, self feeding is more for the learning then anything, and I've asked his ped who said really whatever they will eat at this point, but I want to make sure that what I am giving him is nutritious and not just empty calories. He breastfeeds on demand (won't take breastmilk from a sippy cup or bottle though) and we plan to breastfeed through the winter with this H1N1 so he'll be at least 1 1/2 yrs unless he self-weans sooner.
Breakfast - Gerber graduates cinnamon maple puffs and yogurt melts (he only wants to self feed and refuses yogurt, cereals, etc), pancakes if we are having them
Lunch - cherrios, cubed bananas or apples, shredded cheddar cheese
Dinner - Daddy is usually able to get him to eat some Earth's Best stage 3 foods, and he eats a little of whatever we are having (potatoes, broccoli, peas, rice, etc)
He usually has a sippy cup with half water half juice at some point during the day as well. Note he is allergic to eggs and only has his 2 bottom teeth....
Any suggestions you may have to help round out these meals would be greatly appreciated!
