Re: Food Chart for a one year baby !!!!!!!
Hi, just wanted to pitch in another idea. A chubby, chubby child may look very picaresque, but comes with a risk of childhood obesity, Type 1.5 diabetes and weight issues as she is growing up. Frankly 9 kg is a perfect weight for a 14 month old. Mine was still 8 kg and boys are supposed to be marginally heavier.
Once infants start getting mobile, they will stretch out a little becoming leaner and longer. That's perfectly normal. Active toddlers will tend to become taller than plumper. If your child is not fussy and is active and growing well, then YOU ARE providing her with good nutrition. Try not to worry so much.
Respect your child's desire to eat and her signs of fullness and you'll be teaching her how to eat healthy all her life. Pushing a child to finish something till she vomits (like my family did with me) will result in your child having major body image, food-related issues like anorexia (like I did).
Sorry,I dont mean to lecture or scare you; but this is a tetchy subject for me given all the problems I'd to get oner and others I am still trying... I've been having major issues with pre-diabetes and poorly controlled sugar levels from my late 20s even though I eat quite healthy now.
When a child fails to behave appropriately, is not a reflection of a parentís lack of commitment or skill. It is not an indication that the child is lacking in any way. It is simply a facet of humanness. - Elizabeth Pantley in No-cry Discipline Solution book
