So far, eating has come naturally to my wee one and the whole transition to solids has been a dream! My only concern is ‘How much should she eat?‘ She doesn’t seem to know when to stop and will keep eating until I stop her – no matter what she is eating! I know that you shouldn’t put a baby on a diet, and I’m not doing that, but there comes a point where if I take her out of her chair she is fully satisfied and doesn’t look for food till the next meal – despite the fact that if she stayed at the table she would have kept eating.
So, how much should I give her? I’m fairly happy with her meal portions as she gets two courses and often picks away on lots of veg until we have finished eating, but afternoon snack, between lunch and tea, I think she would eat a whole meal if I let her! This is yesterday’s snack – all eaten with hardly a break for air! She is eleven months old – I’d appreciate any thoughts on quantities! On other days she would eat a bowl of berries, or a whole banana. Equally, other snack ideas would be welcome!
