Simeon is 8 months, but he is pretty much on what we eat now so I thought I'd post what he's eating as he will probably be on the same next month.
His routine is:
Morning: 8oz milk, porridge
Mid morning: 4oz milk
Lunch: Cheese on toast / Home made tuna pasta / sandwiches and a fruit puree
Afternoon: 4oz milk and sometimes an organic biscuit (for babies) depending on how much he had for lunch
Dinner: Anything we have chopped up usually - such as Salmon, potatoes and veggies / chicken, rice, veggies / mild curry / pasta and a fromage frais for dessert.
Before bed: 8oz milk
