dinner for 9 months old
Working mummies! What would you give your 9 months old for dinner if you only reach home around 6.30pm everyday?
- Hello mummies, please share with me what's the estimated portion of your 9-10mths LO eating for BF, lunch and dinner. What is the food you served? Fruits you give every meal or give during snack time? TIA ??
Hey! My baby is 9 months plus.. she will have 2 meals for now.. breakfast + lunch.. for breakfast its really random, depends what we have at home.. Eg yogurt with fruits, scrambled eggs with spinach, toast with avocado. Lunch recently we will have porridge/pasta/noodles. For porridge I normally cook 1 tablespoon of rice with other ingredients. She usually eats at least half.. I will serve with fruits as well for lunch.. Because my daughter doesn't eat too much at each meal, I will start serving 3 meals soon! I don't encourage snacking because I don't want her to have the habit when she grows older..Pon Lim
When my kid is at that age I usually gave her either soup with rice or noodles with soup, added either fish or minced pork/chicken + vegetables. I’m a SAHM but at times when I need to be out for a whole day, I will prepare the ingredients in the morning, put all in the rice cooker then set timer let it slow cook for around 2-3 hours usually it will keep warm so by the time we are home the soup is ready, if I want to add green veg I will add it when I came home and make hot (same way as noodles), if I want to give her rice I will either get it from caifan stall or use a steamer or ELB. During the cooking time, I will do a wash up for my LO and change her clothes since she just came back from CC by the time I’m done the food should be almost ready, just nice can eat.SPeiyee
- Working mummies who are always on the go, how do you store your ebm? cos ice packs usually can only last for 4 to 5 hours, by the time reach home after 9 hours, ice would have melted. Can the milk still be used? TIA
As long as the ice is still cold and can keep the milk cold, it should not be a problem. Use more ice packs so that ice packs keep each other cool for longer periods! What I do is I will have 2 500g ice packs ($2 each, Daiso) for the front and back then squeeze in little cuttable 50g ice packs ($2 for 6, Daiso) in between the milk. Another alternative is to get the fridge-to-go that can last you for 12 hours. I couldn't convince myself to spend the $79.90 and it's bulky and heavy. Something like this would do as well. Just have more ice packs and see what works for you.Samantha Bek
