    Macaroni soup (made with chicken stock) with carrots and other veggies
    Steamed egg with minced meat
    Fish fingers
    Spaghetti bolognese
    Chicken a la king
    Sweet and sour fish
    Hamburger patties
    Fried rice
    Udon soup with veggies and meat

    Actually, my LO likes marmite toast, almonds, bacon, pinenuts and gherkins. (Not always at the same time.)

    I find dishes that are the right size for little fingers go down best (e.g. a chicken leg in the hand etc.)

    I also bought a little fry pan so as to easily poach small amounts of meat and fish

    * Salmon slices from the sashimi/sushi bar fried lightly in butter with avocado pieces
    * A chicken leg browned, then poached with canned peaches or apricots
    * Chicken shredded with mashed avocado and spread on toast or mini rice crackers
    * Whole-wheat animal pasta shapes from M&S with Bolognese, or tuna and creamed corn
    * Couscous with tomato, veges and little pieces of beef
    * Little meatballs in a tomato sauce
    * Steamed baby sweetcorn spears

    Love all the recipes out of the Gina Ford Book of Weaning. A lot of them you can make for you as well. Favourites are:

    Corn chowder with toast fingers
    Minestrone soup with toast fingers
    Moussaka
    Baby bolognaise
    Cottage pie
    Chicken and sweet peppers
    Chicken Oat Crumble.

    My little one is not that good at feeding himself yet so he couldn't cope with a chicken drumstick by himself. The above can be blended or mashed depending on age of baby (from 9 months up).

    PS agree with Cara - when we have a meal for us that is suitable for him as well then he has that - just chopped up a bit.

    by 18 months, almost everything should be suitable for him.

    Agree with Starbucks2 & Carang, my children eat what we eat for dinner. We don't make special meals separately for them.
