I have a ten month old who is moving quickly in the feeding department. She demolishes stage 3 baby food and seems most happy when she's feeding herself with finger foods(cheese cubes, crackers, easy mac, chicken nuggets, banana chunks). I am very much pregnant and have a super messy husband (constantly cleaning!). I don't have a lot of time for cooking since i spend most of my time off my feet (sciatic nerve and swelling nightmares!) and i'm new at this. I need ideas for super easy meals that are filling. Thanks in advance for the suggestions!
My daughter LOVED the Gerber Graduate Meals! Kinda like a tv dinner but healthier and pieces just right for little ones to feed themselves! I wouldn't feel them to a child every day, but when you dont have time to cook this would be perfect...just pop it in the microwave for a few seconds and you're done!
I feed my kids what we are eating at that point. I have never ever made special meals for my kids. My two younger kids didn't start really eating until they could feed themselves. So, for every meal I just gave them soft cooked veggies, meats, and fruits... Whatever we were having they got the same thing! Or I use cooked sweet potatoes pieces of avocado, blended up chunks of meat with the veggies into smaller mashed up pieces they could feed themselves.
