Solids
How much food should a 11month old eat in one sitting, generally.
My boy eats about 5 tablespoons of cereal at one go, yogjurt as a snack at 3pm
Supper and lunch I am afraid he is not eating enough.
He will have about the equivalent of 1 medium jar of purity (number 2) of homemade veg/fruit, no more than that, and often he does not finish all of it even.
Is this enough. He drinks a litre of milk a day still.
The purity jars you buy at the shop which say from 10months (number 3 i think) are enormous. Are they meant to be finished at one go?
I just wonder if he is drinking too much milk and not eating enough solids.

He seems to be happy with what he is eating. He seems to be getting plenty of milk which is probably filling him up. The main thing to know is his weight and whether he is gaining weight regularly and growing well.
