How much should I feed my 1 yr old???

So now that my son will be off of formula I am getting concerned that he wont be eating enough healthy nutritious foods from fruits & veggies.  With formula it was easy since he was getting all his vitamins from that plus he was eating 3 meals a day.  Now that he will be getting all his calories from meals it worries me that he will not eat enough or get enough healthy foods since he doesnt particularly like veggies.

Age: 12 to 24 months

Signs of readiness

  • Can start to use a spoon (though proficiency will take a while!)

What to feed

  • Whole milk
  • Other dairy (soft pasteurized cheese, full-fat yogurt and cottage cheese)
  • Same food as rest of family, mashed or chopped into bite-size pieces
  • Iron-fortified cereals (oats, barley, wheat, mixed cereals)
  • Other grains (whole wheat bread, pasta, rice)
  • Fruits: melon, papaya, apricot, grapefruit
  • Vegetables: broccoli and cauliflower “trees”, cooked until soft
  • Protein (eggs; cut-up or ground meat or poultry; boneless fish; tofu; beans; thinly spread smooth peanut butter)
  • Citrus and non-citrus juice
  • Honey is now okay

How much per day

  • 2 cups dairy (1 cup milk or yogurt, 1 cup = 1 1/2 ounces natural cheese or 2 ounces processed cheese)
  • 3 ounces grains, preferably half of them whole grains (1 ounce = 1/3 cup cold cereal, 1/4 cup pasta or rice, 1 slice bread)
  • 1 cup fruit (fresh, frozen, canned and/or 100 percent juice) Emphasize whole fruits rather than juice.
  • 1 cup vegetables (Serve vegetables that are cut in small pieces and well cooked to prevent choking.)
  • 2 ounces protein (1 ounce = one slice of sandwich meat, about 1/3 of a chicken breast half, 1/4 can of tuna, 1/4 cup cooked dry beans, or 1 egg)
