Since Miya is 8months old, she started to show her personality. Ada character..ada attitude…and I really hate it that now dia dah mula show her personality and attitude towards her food.
It is important to note that even at this stage, not all babies between the age of 8-12 months old will be eating the same amounts nor will they be eating the same foods. Tu la yang buat mama miya ni pening and resah.
Selepas almost a week of compiling menu and mind boggling thinking process, I came up with this menu. These menu mama miya come up after knowing miya’s favorites and also have been tested and waited at its proper time period to detect an allergic reaction.
· ½ cup Fruity Yogurt, 1/2cup Oatmeal with Fruits (pisang/prune/apple puree)
· ¼ Toast with cheese & fruits, 1/2cup Rice Fruity Tofu Pudding
· 1 panini cheese with prunes
· 1 panini/tortilla with cheese + banana
· 1cup Angelhair pasta with pumpkin sauce (pumpkin puree, garlic oil & grated carrots)
· 1cup Spaghetti with Popeye Pesto (Garlic Oil, spinach, cheese & green peas=all pureed)
· 1cup Spaghetti with Potato Chunks & mince beef (buat ala2 goreng2 with butter/olice oil)
· 1 bijik Ketupat with Ayam carik2/mince beef & vege chunks.
· Rojak Singapore Ala Baby (kentang goring, tofu goring & steam vege, tanpa kuah rojak)
Dinner or Snack time
· 1cup Beehoon/ketiau Soup with chicken soup or vege soup
· 1cup Oats with vege/chicken soup
· 1cup Oat with milk & fruits
· Rusk with milk
· Baby bites chicken vege flavoue.
Well tu la menu yg I plan for Miya, but the thing is dia still picky….kekadang I have to sediakan 2 jenis makanan, Sweet & Savory..so dia akan makan half of the sweet & half of the savory. Experts keep on saying that:
“Do NOT feel as though your baby should be eating solid foods according to any schedule! Your baby will eat as much solid foods as your baby needs - trust your baby's cues!”
But I don’t know why, my little heart still worries, wondering if Miya is having enough calories as required by her active body or not. I just pray that makanan yg I sediakan ni contains enough nutrition utk Miya grow healthy, so kalau dia makan sikit pun still mencukupi utk dia terus sihat. Also now, I never miss giving her the Appeton infant drop. Hoping the multivitamine, lysine & whatever healthy stuff in there will help my darling daughter grow healthy and grow better appetite too.
*note- geram sgt, cik minah ni sibuk nak main & explore dunia sampai kurang makan. She used to swallow the whole tub of food..now nak habiskan satu tub tu sejam..
