    Hi girls :D

    My little boy is 19 months and we went throught stages of him eating a lot, nothing, little....

    But now I am just worried he has too much. I just don't want to him to get overweight.
    That is what he has on average day.

    Breakfast: Either baby porridge mixed with milk (approx 200 gramm or the size of 2/3 of Avent large bottle) or toast + 2 baby youghurts.

    Lunch: Approx 250 gramm (size of Avent large bottle) of main course (either soup or a stew) + 100 gramm of fruit puree or half a banana + sometimes 1 small baby youghurt

    Tea: Same as lunch or finger foods like 1 banana, some cheese, 2 baby biscuits

    7.00pm: his milk feed before bed (approx 8oz)

    11.00pm: another 8oz milk feed

    He is very energetic and we go with him for long walks (approx 1-2 miles) few times a week. He walks himself. And is generally very active during the day.

    Do you think it is the right amount of food he has?

    I think it sounds fine, if he's eating it all with no problems I wouldn't worry about it. We always feed what they want. I have a 19mo old too :) He turned 19mo on the 15th. How big is your little guy?

    They need to eat little and often and 8 tiny "meals" are better than 3 big meals anyway so snacks of toast, apple etc are great. The only thing I might try to cut down is the yogurts/baby fromage frais coz they contain an awful lot of sugar. You might give him 2 coz they're small but bear in mind the high sugar content and try to just give one per day.
