Dear K
At the age of 1,5 years a child should no longer need to eat Purity foods, but be eating mashed or minced table foods that the rest of the family eat, just in much smaller portions because small children have small stomach capacities. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'DietDoc's articles' and search around article 65 you will find a whole series of articles on 'Diets for Toddlers' plus one article on 'Menus for toddlers' and ideas for health snacks, etc.
Hope this helps
Best regards
