The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) outlines sample meal plans for babies age 8 to 12 months and 1 year old. The best eating schedule will depend on your child, so make adjustments as necessary. For children age 8- to 12-months-old, AAP recommends three meals and three snacks. Each meal consists of 4 to 6 ounces of breast milk or formula, along with two to four small portions of table foods such as cereal, fruits, vegetables, yogurt or meat. Each snack offers another 4 to 8 ounces of breast milk and, for the two snacks of the day, one portion of vegetables, yogurt or a cracker or teething biscuit. For a 1-year-old that weights around 21 pounds and no longer takes breast milk or formula, AAP suggests three meals and two snacks. Breakfast can consist of fortified breakfast cereal or an egg, whole milk and fruit, while lunch includes a half-sandwich, vegetables and whole milk. Dinner contains 2 to 3 ounces of cooked meat, vegetables and a small portion of starch, along with whole milk. Each suggested snack includes milk and a serving of fruit, dairy or whole grains.
