Having seen some similar blog/vlog posts I thought I would do a 'what Samuel eats in a day' post. It may become weekly/fortnightly as it will inspire me to try new things rather than give him the same things all the time.
This is all from the same day and I have not jazzed it up in the slightest for the purpose of this post. It is just an average day.
When Samuel wakes I will breastfeed him. This is usually half an hour to an hour before breakfast. Depending on what he had during the night depends on how long he will feed for. Last night he slept for 10 hours and didn't wake up until 6am (never happens Samuel usually wakes at least once for a feed and few more times just needing reassurance) which meant he fed on and off for about 10 minutes.
Whilst I prepare Samuels main breakfast he will sit in his high chair and snack on dry cereal. Today he had Weetos and Rice Crispies.
He then had Weatabix with whole cows milk which he feeds himself. Yes it can get a bit messy.
I also add his vitamins to a small amount of water which he drinks during his breakfast.
Samuel only ate half of his weatabix today so I popped some Ella's Kitchen Round Ones in his tub and he ate those whilst I had a shower (Samuel was in the room with me so I could see him).
After Samuel wakes from his morning nap he usually likes a little snack and a drink. Today he had some Kiddylicious veggie straws and some water. This will usually see him through until lunchtime.
Today Samuel had left over rice, sweetcorn and cucumber. This was followed by a box of raisins.
Again he had a drink of water as well as a Fruit Shoot Hydro.
Sometimes Samuel will have more milk in the afternoon either breast or formula however today he didn't show any signs of wanting any. He had an Ella's Kitchen the red one smoothie, another box of raisins and half an Kiddylicious carrot bar as well as plenty more water to drink. This wasn't all in one go it was over the course of the afternoon.
Today Samuel had whole grain breaded chicken, potato waffles and mixed veg, followed by strawberries. He had water to drink.
He ate most but not all. Actually Samuel can be quite hit and miss with what he eats. Perhaps I should call this post 'what I give Samuel to eat' rather that what he actually eats.
Samuel has a bottle of follow on milk and today he had a top up of breast milk. It depends on how tired he is or how much he has eaten throughout the day.
So there we go – what I gave Samuel to eat today. As I said it is not jazzed up in anyway. I would love to hear what your little ones favourite foods are.
