HELP!! I need ideas of things to give Jackson to eat. His main staples these days are fruit (any kind-he loves it!), yogurt, cheese, Nutrigrain blueberry waffles, and puffs. He will try a few bites of a grilled cheese, pasta (tortellini), and some other things, but doesn't seem too excited about meat stuff. He is not fond of deli meat right now. Should I stress if all he wants to eat is yogurt and applesauce?? What do your kids like to eat?

That sounds like about the extent of my kids' diets too. Not that their eating habits are something to emulate though! I certainly wouldn't stress over the meat thing. I don't think my boys started eating meat until their 1st birthday. Don't worry, it will come! I used a book called "Super Baby Foods" by Ruth Yaron that I really liked, if you want to try that. It doesn't have meat ideas in it though. I still use it or I'd send you my copy.

It sounds like a pretty healthy menu to me. I really wouldn't worry about the meat thing. He is getting a lot of protein from formula and breast milk and the cheese and yougurt. Don't stress. He's doing great!

Kyle still doesn't really eat that much meat. He will ask for chicken or a hamburger every now and then (he's only asked for a hamburger twice and eaten the entire thing, but if I offer it he will have nothing to do with it). Laurie's right - he's still getting protein so don't stress over it.
