Meal planning for 7- 10-month-old

This meal plan will help you regulate how much solids and formula you’re feeding your baby during 7-10-months of age. The amount of formula and food wont really change too much during this period of time. 

You might also want to check out the earlier post about what 4-6-month-old eats and how to introduce solids here.

Meal planning

7-month-old eat from 227g-340g of solid foods. Baby’s diet should consist of dairy, porridge and vegetable and fruit purees. Baby should  also have about 708g-907g breastmilk a day. You can have for example 4 nursing sessions and feed 170g-226g at a time. Give solids after the milk.

When your baby is 8-month-old don’t smash the foods fully like you used to. This is the step you can take before moving into finger foods. Baby’s meals should consist of fish, fruits, vegetables, chicken, fruits, vegetables and dairy. Now you can also start combining different foods and offer your baby for example some chicken curry. Feed 2-3 times a day during breakfast, lunch and dinner. What comes to formula/breastmilk you can keep feeding about 708g-907g daily.

Your 9-month-old can start trying finger foods. At this time your baby’s meals could consist of soft rice and bread, chicken, fish, beans, cereal and noodles as well as the foods you have introduced before like fruits and vegetables. You can even make a little pasta salad with some lentil pasta, pieces of cheese and cucumber. Chop the finger foods into long strips that baby can more easily nibble on them. Also make sure you pick soft foods as finger foods like cucumber, pear, cheese etc. Your baby is still having quite a lot of formula / breastmilk 708g-907g a day. 

Meal plan for 10-month-old consists of beef, chicken, fish, turkey, finger foods, dairy, fruits, veggies and porridge. Your baby still needs 3-4 nursing sessions that come up to 708g-907g of formula a day.

Welcome to my blog! I write about healthy diets, weightloss and money tips. I have struggled for years to lose weight and tried many different diets. When I finally decided to focus more on my health than just wanting to lose weight I started losing weight naturally. It was a full lifestyle change. One key point through this transformation was basically going on a paleo diet. You might want to check out Dr. William Davis.

As a person who moved to a different country I know how hard it can be to get a decent job. I wanted to include different money tricks and tips on my blog to help people who have ended up in similar situations.

  1. Hi there
    Just wondering why spinach and squash are on the do not feed less. There’s lots of baby cereal spinach pancakes that are great from six months up. As well as squash is a good starting food?
