Baby food recipe for 1 year

Favorite Recipes for 1 Year Olds

Make it easier to feed your toddler with our favorite recipes for 1 year olds. With ideas for each meal of the day, breakfast through dinner, this will help take (some!) of the challenge out of feeding your one year old.

Recipes for 1 Year Olds

I know firsthand how hard it can be to figure out what to feed a one year old. They suddenly are more aware of the world around them and can handle more textures—but often, they aren’t quite up to eating all of the crunchy or chewy or mixed textures of “kid food” yet.

That’s not to say that we can’t serve them much of the same food we eat, only that we need to pay attention to how easy things are for them to eat and allow time for them to continue learning to eat a range of textures.

This is often a very common time for parents to see changes in how the child eats as compared to when they were a baby. It is not unusual for a one year old to eat less food than they did as a baby—the rate of growth often slows during this year as compared to babyhood, so a child may naturally be less hungry.

One Year Old Feeding Tips

When a child does not eat every food we offer, this does not mean they are picky or that you need to take any drastic steps. But you may:

  • Start with smaller portions to limit food waste.
  • Look at the volume of milk (any kind) the child is drinking. If they aren’t very hungry for food or they only want foods that are very easy for them to eat and they are drinking more than 24 ounces of milk a day, it may be time to consider moving much of that milk intake to meal time (rather than in separate bottle feedings). You can also play around with the timing of offering food and nursing or bottle feedings.
  • Remember that a 1-year-old is MUCH more aware of the world around them than a baby is, which manifests in all sorts of new opinions and preferences. This happens both away from the table and at the table. Food preferences are not necessarily a sign that anything is wrong, but could be a sign that your one-year-old is more in tune with their own power in their ever-evolving world. We shouldn’t expect them to eat the same as they did as babies. Their understanding of their world is totally different.
  • Consider your emotional reaction to a meal that went differently than you expected and try not to project onto your child if possible. (An example would be trying not to label a small child “picky” as that will only scale up your anxiety and may build in a set of negative feeding connotations for a child who is simply a different eater than we expect.)
  • Try to avoid comparing one kid to another—either in real life or comparing your child with one you see on social media. The context of your life matters and the environment in which you’re feeding your family is different than everyone else’s.
  • Sit with the kids during meals as much as possible so you can model how to eat a range of foods.
  • Continue offering a range of foods even if they don’t always want to try them. A small serving is an option here to limit food waste.
  • Consider trying the Division of Responsibility as a way to reduce mealtime pressure.
  • Know that there is a giant range of “normal” in how little kids eat.
  • Remember that there are no magic 1 year old recipe, but a lot of great options to feed our kids.

And maybe most importantly, always remember that feeding a family is a lot of work. You’re not doing it wrong.

OK, now on to some easy-to-make and easy-to-eat recipes that are delicious options to make for and share with your one-year-old.

Dinner Recipes for 1 Year Olds

Dinner is often a struggle for this age group simply because they are tired—and you may have a kiddo who tapers their intake, with more earlier in the day and less at dinner. That is normal.

You can try adjusting the timing of dinner a little, offering some of the food that’s ready as you finish cooking it (I often put a kiddo in their highchair right in the kitchen with me so they could eat as I finished making the meal), and remember that this age is fleeting.

Here are some of our favorite dinners for one-year-olds.

Easy Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal (to Share with the Kids!)

Made with just a few wholesome ingredients, this Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal cooks up fast and easily—which is exactly what you want in a breakfast! (P. S. I love it just as much as my kids do.)

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

In our house, apples are one of those fruits that tends to linger in the fridge long after everyone has eaten the grapes, berries, and citrus. Which means I try to find creative ways to use them that the kids are happy to eat. (A tall order, as you can imagine.)

Thankfully, one apple shredded and cooked into oats can transform them into a delicious breakfast—because the hit of natural sweetness makes this apple oatmeal a bit hit with my kids!

Oatmeal is something that I’ve made an effort to feed to my kids regularly, which means that we literally have it regularly on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. This ensures that it’s familiar to them, but the rotation means that they don’t have a chance to get bored of it.

Since all of my kids enjoy raisins, we almost always make it with some in the mix, too.

TIP: We’ve been having a version of this oatmeal since my oldest was a baby—which means that it works whether eaten with little hands or a spoon.

Ingredients You need

To make this healthy oatmeal for a toddler breakfast or family breakfast, you’ll need:

  • Rolled oats: These are also called “old-fashioned oats” at the store.
  • Raisins: You can use regular or golden raisins in this oatmeal. Or another dried fruit like cranberries or cherries.
  • Apple: Any kind of apple works here.
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon: This adds lovely flavor so use it if you have it.
  • Milk: I use whole milk, but any type of milk will work here, including non-dairy options.

TIP: You can make this gluten-free with certified gluten-free rolled oats. And dairy-free if you opt for dairy-free milk.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Here’s a look at how to make this simple oatmeal and the process involved. Scroll down to the bottom of the post for the full recipe.

  1. Assemble the ingredients. Grate the apple.
  2. Heat water in a medium pot over high heat. When it’s almost about to boil, lower to medium low and add all ingredients except the optional nut or seed butter and optional toppings.
  3. Cook, stirring often, until the oats are softened and the water is absorbed, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and let sit. Stir in the milk and add optional toppings and serve warm.

TIP: This is easy to reheat, so you can make a bigger batch and serve it throughout the week if you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of apples are best in this oatmeal?

You can use any type of apple that has good flavor and that you have on hand. It works with all types! I usually leave the skin on since it grates up into small pieces.

How can I add more protein?

We often stir in a few tablespoons of hemp seeds (which really don’t have much texture or flavor, but they do have protein, fiber, and healthy fats), chia seeds, or nut or seed butter. You can also serve this with a dollop of Greek yogurt (or chopped nuts for older kids).

Can I make this with instant oats?

Sure, you can swap them in or check out my DIY Instant Oats recipe.

Can I make this Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal in the microwave?

Sure! To make one toddler-size serving in the microwave, add ¼ cup rolled oats, ½ cup water, a dash of cinnamon, a dash of vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons raisins, and about 2 tablespoons grated apple (or applesauce if it’s easier!) to a heat safe bowl or measuring cup.

Cover with waxed paper and cook in 30 second increments, stopping to stir in between, for about 90 seconds or until the water is mostly absorbed and the oats are soft. Add a little milk to serve.

Tips for Toddlers and Oatmeal

The main thing is to make it taste good and to have it around regularly. If they are totally new to it, it may take a few tries to get them to try it. Avoid pressuring them too much, serve very small servings to start, and let them add their own toppings to personalize their bowl.

If my oldest doesn’t want oatmeal, she almost always comes around if we offer peanut butter (or sprinkles!) on top.

And let it be okay for them to eat it with their hands if needed. When my kids are young and still learning to use a spoon, I load up their spoon for them and hand it over so they can put it into their mouths.

How to Store

To store, place into an airtight container in the fridge and then warm individual servings as needed for about 30 seconds in the microwave.

Best Tips for Success

  • Grate the apple with the peel on to add nutrients.
  • Lower the heat and add a little additional liquid if the oatmeal sticks to the pan at any point.
  • Top with protein-rich nut or seed butter.
  • Stir in hemp seeds, flax seeds, or chia seeds to add fiber, protein and healthy fats.
  • An older baby eating finger foods can eat this with their hands. A kiddo learning to use a spoon can be handed preloaded spoons so they can feed themselves with your help.
