How old are children when they start eating 'normal' meals?

My boys pretty much ate normal food when they turned 1 year ols. The meal need to be cut in small portions so they won't choke on them. I always have Kaden eat his meal with water or milk.


Even if my kids were eating at 5, we all tried to sit together at that time and then if my husband and I are later, they would sit with us and could try whatever we had.

I'd say kindergarten is when we all started to eat at the same time. Early enough for the kids but late enough for us that it didn't feel like a late lunch.
