    I have just given AJ Lettuce, Cucumber, Tomatos, Ham & Cheese.

    I see allover Facebook people my age that have children saying taking my boy/girl to Mcdonalds, then the next day sausage mash and beans for their tea. I think it's bad that their children aren't given one healthy meal a day.

    I try my hardest to make AJ eat healthily and so far so good, He loves most fruit and veg apart from he doesn't like oranges or carrots. Once in a while a treat is acceptable but everyday:shock:

    My LO has just has chicken nuggets with cheese+brocoli pasta for her lunch. Not exactly packed with veg, but there's some in there, and as long as she's getting it one way or another, then I try not to worry much. :)

    It's pretty nice, but you have to watch out for sneaky salt they put in it these days! X

    My lo had a cheese sandwich, a satsuma, banana, and half an apple. Oh and a yoghurt. He loves fruit! On an average day he eats about five or six pieces.

    Jack had mushroom & tomato gnocchi, a fruit pot & some water. He hasn't even had chocolate yet and won't until he's 1 let alone McDonalds! He refuses to eat finger foods at the moment so I make sure he gets plenty of fruit & veg in his meals! x

    I don't see anything wrong in sausage and mash! We had it yesterday with broccoli too.

    Sebastian didn't have chocolate or biscuits etc until recently (he's 16 months now) and then it's only once in a while but we don't make a big fuss over it being special or a treat, it's just a different type of food. He still hasn't had crisps or mcD's though he did have a grilled chicken burger with apple and water from burger king last Friday.

    Today we had ham, cheese and salsa quesadillas, a banana and a yogurt for lunch and is currently tucking into chicken and vegetable stir fry :)
    Clairebear can I have your gnocchi recipe please xx

    Once Jack's a year old it'll be everything in moderation. TBH the in-laws will try to pump tons of junk into him at the weekend (they'll have a fight on their hands lol) so i'll let them fork out for treats and not give them to him during the week

    Amy i'll PM you too, typical of Jack to not be tired when I have things to do lol x

    ALL of mine & OH's family can't understand why we haven't let Jack have chocolate yet! My MIL is the worst, she's even bought him a baby tin of chocolate oudding even though we've told them he's not trying chocolate until he's a year! Every bloody weekend she mentions that it's in the cupboard and we had chocate gateau for pudding last weekend and she said' Can I give Jack some choclate moussy stuff off the top?'. I nearly said 'is he 1 yet?, No, well what do you reckon then?'! Instead I just firmly shook my head!

    Funny thing is though I know for a fact he'll take it, lick it (if they're lucky) and chuck it on the floor like he does with all other finger foods!! The only thing he'll suck on is raw carrot sticks, apple slices and a stick of cheese and even then it's only once in a blue moon! x
