 1-2 Year Baby Food Routine

 Can You imagine? Your tiny baby is one year old. And you might have celebrated his first birthday very grandly. For every parent, this was the most amazing experience they had till now with their little one. We parents are always curious about our kid’s health and their way of living, we always want them to be healthy and happy and we try our best to keep them healthy always. We talk to doctors and other parents to give the best to our children. And here you are. I want to share with you my experience with my baby. I followed this food chart, which helped me hope it will help you too.

Daily Routine:-

  • Wakeup time (7.00 – 7.30 am) = Breastmilk/Formula milk/Whole milk (150 – 200ml).
  • Breakfast (8.30 – 9.00 am) = one bowl.
  • Nap time = 10.00 – 10.30 am.
  • Mid-morning snack (11.00 – 11.30 am) = half bowl.
  • Lunch (1.00 – 1.30 pm) = one bowl.
  • Nap time = 2.00 – 2.30 pm.
  • Mid-evening snack (5.00 – 5.30 pm) = half bowl.
  • Dinner (7.30 – 8.00 pm) = one bowl
  • Bedtime = 9.00 pm
 

Important tips:-

  • At this age, you can give whole milk, salt, sugar, honey, whole egg, pepper, etc
  • Avoid Biscuits from outside unless it’s an emergency. You can make homemade biscuits with less sugar.
  • Avoid sugar, one spoonful of sugar is enough for the whole day.
  • Never sprinkle salt on top of food after cooking, this can be harmful.
  • Do not give water during meals to baby, this will fill his stomach up and he may not have his meal. You can give a few sips of water before meals.
  • Avoid junk food and fried foods from the outside.
  • Carry fruits or nuts from home when you go outside with your baby.
  • To increase your baby’s appetite engage him in activities.
  • Jaggery is very good for digestion so try to give this after meals to the baby.
  • Milk should be given at least 2 – 3 times a day.
  • Ensure the baby sleeps early at night and wakes up early in the morning. Getting up late in the morning can build up the acidity in the baby’s stomach and when you offer breakfast to him he will vomit. So make sure that you give lukewarm water to the baby after waking up.
  • If the baby doesn’t like to drink plain cow milk, add a pinch of cardamom powder or soap before giving it.
