My son has been eating everything I eat from age 1 on up. He is now 3. He eats sweets, soda, fried food, veggies... whatever he feels like eating.

My 17 month old eats pretty much what we eat. If we're having something too greasy or too spicy, I make her something else, like soup or pasta, or an omelet.



I never give her dessert (I'm not against dessert in general, but I just feel that she's young and I want her to get used to healthy snacks before she develops a liking to sweets) and she rarely gets fried foods.



During the day, she snacks on fruit or vegetables. She loves apples, grapes, canteloupe, carrots, tomatoes, pears, strawberries, etc.)

Started solids at 7 months. First year was just plain and all organic whole foods;
fruit
veg
chicken
fish
grains like couscous and amaranth and quinoa
He only drank breast milk until he started water at 9 months but didn't drink it regularly till after a year old. He also had herbal teas from maybe 10 months old.



After a year i added in home baking for snacks with spelt flour and sauces.
He was getting 3 meals and 3 snacks a day from 14 months - he would just pick things off my plate at meals and i'd leave a snack plate out to take whatever he wanted whilst playing. At 16 months he started drinking abit of cows milk aswel and around 18 months he started drinking smoothies. Around 22 months he started having watered down juice with meals.



After age 2 he got to have little pieces of chocolate. At 2.5 years he was given some candy and i let him have it and i bought store made cakes and he drank hot chocolate too. He only wanted his own bowl and serving of food since being 2.5. The sweet processed foods have increased from occasional to frequent between 2.5 yrs and turning 3 but we're moving back to a less processed diet.



This all reflects my own diet too and he's always had whatever i've eaten. The only difference is that prior to age 2.5 i used to eat junk food at night after he was sleep, but as i started eating it in the daytime so did he. We both need to be a little more healthy. I have IBS so i don't eat much stuff with a lot of bad fats or greasy food, but we do have fried fish and fries a couple of times a month. DS is allergic to MSG so he can't have some foods.

Soda?



OP: My daughter eats what we eat, but we don't give her fast food a lot, she's had mcdonalds maybe like 5 times in her life and she'll be 4 in Dec. She's never had soda or anything. She likes cold veggies and fruit so she gets a lot of that in her lunches.

I agree with what you said about sweets for sure. We give ours desserts but I think you did it correctly. What they don't know about they can't miss. There's a lot of time for kids to eat junk when they're old enough to make their own choices.

Breakfast: (pick one)
Eggs and yogurt
Eggs and fruit
oatmeal and fruit



Lunch:
Veggies and fruit



Dinner:
Whatever we eat. usually a protien, veggie, & rice.



we give puffs occasionally. other than that no processed sugar. No 'junk food' really, we give veggie sticks or goldfish sometimes. We mostly eat things made from scratch, rarely use boxed/processed foofs. Never canned.
She is 13 months & nurses on demand. Some days she nurses more than she eats and vice versa. we do not drink cows milk, but we do eat yogurt & cheese occasionally. she prefers veggies over fruit :)

He's 14 months. I try to feed him healthy things only, with a very occasional treat. His favorite thing is cheese, so he eats a lot of that. He'll eat eggs, rice, oatmeal, frozen peaches, bread with strawberry jam, graham crackers, he loves the Gerber puffs. And he also eats everything I eat. So, pastas, chicken, stew, soup, cereal.. You get the idea haha. I just have a hard time getting him to eat vegetables.

The effects of these choices show up later in life. our society as a whole is not healthy. Cancer, diabetes, obesity, the list goes on. these are resilts of what goes into our body (through food, chemicals, ect). To say he is'healthy' does not prove anything. Yes, he didn't die, because our bodies 'survive' even in sub par conditions.



we drink water only. Sometimes smoothies with fresh fruit as a treat :)
