15 (12-18) months Food Chart/ Toddler Food Chart

This 15 (12-18) months Food Chart / Meal Plan will help you plan your recently turned toddler’s meals with ease.

At 15 months, you must be noticing huge changes in your baby in the last few months. Your little baby might be a proficient walker now. Even if she has not yet taken her first step alone, it is just round the corner. You will find that she wants greater control over everything and that includes eating. The baby might seem to want to move all the time and the memories of her sitting quietly in the high-chair while you feed her might appear distant.

 

 

15 (12-18) months Food Chart / Meal Plan

Feeding a toddler can be a challenge. They can suddenly start refusing their favorite food or may take fancy to something completely unlikely. Your baby who was eating like a dream might turn into a fussy eater overnight. Now is the time to allow her the freedom to feed herself by offering finger foods.

Points to remember when feeding a 15 months old 

  1. You may have switched to cow’s milk by now or might still be breastfeeding. Remember to increase the quantity of solid meals now. If your toddler does not like milk, see how you can replace milk in her diet.
  2. Limit your toddler’s intake of milk to less than 2 cups a day( around 400-500 ml).
  3. If you have been giving purees, stop them right away. At 15 months, your baby is capable enough to chew her food.
  4. Give finger food which the toddler can feed herself. Small pieces of paranthas, rotis, vegetable sticks, paneer sticks, potato and sweet potato fries can form great finger food.
  5. Try not to get too stressed over the amount being eaten or mess being made. This too shall pass!
  6. Avoid temptation to feed sugary items just so the tot eats something.
  7. Serve variety of food to ensure balanced diet.
  8. Try to give a wholesome meal every time but do not count on it to be finished. Every child is different. Some might love one pot meals like khichdi, pulaos etc. while others might insist on separate food groups. Try and figure out your child’s preference.
  9. Try to make food interesting and fun by making different shapes out of chapatis and making food more colorful.
  10. Try not to run behind your active toddler with a plate of food as it can set you up for next few years. Either let them feed themselves or feed in a chair.
  11. Include raw fruits and vegetables (salads) in their regular meals. This is the age to inculcate good eating habits and taste towards healthy food options.
  12. You will have some important vaccinations at 15 months mark. View and download the IAP approved Immunization Chart here.

 13.   You can safely give non-vegetarian items if you waited till 1 year to introduce them. Eggs, fish and chicken are usually safe to be given. Some recipes below:

Chicken and veg soup/broth

Baked chicken lollipops – Kid-friendly

Chicken curry for kids

Fish for first-timers

      It is best to leave quantity to the child as every child is different. As long as they are eating and are active and healthy, you don’t need to worry. 🙂
