My 1 year old always sits and eats dinner at the table with us but sometimes she doesn't eat a lot. We want to make sure she has enough to eat before bed so my wife doesn't have to nurse as much through the night. What are some healthy and filling snacks we could use to supplement dinner time?
According to BabyCenter, your child's nutrition is actually a lot easier than you think it might be:
This thread over at TheBump.com also includes a possible feeding schedule for a wee one that you might find enlightening.
As far as "filling" goes, FitDay had this to offer:
So, stick to nutrient rich foods -- especially proteins! -- and you should be fine. Also consider adding a little fat to their diet with cheese; a lot of people (myself included) find that a little cheese after dinner is immensely satisfying, and is not uncommon for a meal to end with cheese, depending on where you're from.
