My 22 month old eats ( I say eats- hes very picky) what we eat, for the most part. I think he probably did at 16 months too, with few exceptions

its just a matter of cutting is small enough so they can eat it

I think i have the only kid on the planet who HATES cheese! lol

At that age, he can eat anything and everything you eat. There is no need to make him anything special.

Supposedly giving kids peanut butter before a certain age increases the risk of the allergy. I don't know.
It's a wonder all of us who grew up on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are still alive.

We have a mini food processor. I believe it is for herbs and nuts maybe...It is small...Anyway, I would grind up whatever we were eating. My 22 month old decided she was done with baby food at around 8 months...and of course she only had a couple teeth...

We did oatmeal, eggs, buttered toast, cherrios, yogurt, cheese (grated until she got used to it), steamed veggies, grated raw veggies (carrots), pastas, applesauce, rice, mashed potatoes, cottage cheese and some soups, like broccoli and cheese...

Anything we were not comfy with (consitancy wise) we just tossed it in the processor. ANd she ate it right up...The processor was like 20 bucks and now I use it for a bunch of stuff when I am cooking... Great little investment.

Good luck!

Neither did I, but I'm only 27. I don't know why there are so many peanut allergies now. It baffles me.

My 2 1/2 yr old eats what we eat & it has been that way since 12 months after the ped gave us the ok.
From the get go he loved veggies & fruits, especially peas, oranges & grapes.

For a "special treat", I put whip cream on top of yogurt for him; he gets a kick out of it.

He would have lunch before nap: usually soups. Here is what I like about soups: you can make them ones in 3 days and not worry about lunch for 3 days. You can mix bunch of vegetables and small pieces of chicken or beef in there. You can throw spaghetti and rice in there as well. There are just so many things you can do with soup and it's healthy!
You can make beef meatballs and chop them finely with pasta and throw in small pieces of carrots and veggies in there.

For a snack after the nap, he would have cottage cheese, or mix of avocado with banana and apple (some fruity mix).

For a bed time, he would have either a cream of wheat, or oatmeal (if he didn't have it in the morning). Basically something filling to sustain him thru the night and also a bottle again.

In between those meals I would try to let him try some of the foods I eat: some potato, some veggies, some greens...anything he is willing to try and taste to establish his taste buds.
Reading this makes me hungry. I wish I could be Max for a day. The only thing I'd feel funny about is the goat milk, maybe.

Assuming no allergies: small cubes of cheese, Cheerios, sliced avocado, canned peaches (in pear juice, not in syrup), little YoBaby yogurts (they need the whole milk products), full fat cottage cheese, steamed carrots, steamed frozen peas, steamed broccoli (I used to cut off the stems and just chop up the florets), baked sweet and white potatoes, very soft shredded chicken, eggs, bananas, mangoes, peeled and chopped up plums.... I don't remember how many teeth they have at 16 months, so for fruits like apples and pears, you might want to chop up and steam a bit first, otherwise just slice very thin and cut off the peel. You can make a grilled cheese sandwich, kind of pat it down flat and cut into very small chunks... use whole wheat bread. I used to buy whole wheat ditalini pasta and mix that with some steamed veggies and olive oil, and that would be a good, easily packable lunch if you're going out.

Ahh, baby feeding... before baby gets picky, LOL!
