at month three, k has definitely increased her food repertoire with new vegetables: zucchini, parsnip and; fruits: apple and banana; and another grain: quinoa. i often mix her bowls with a variety of vegetables and/or vegetables and sometimes some grain. portions have been 3 to 4 tablespoons and she has been eating it all so we’ve definitely been lucky that she’s such a good eater!

this month, we’re keeping her meals at 3 per day but we’re upping the portions to 4 to 5 tablespoons per meal. we’re continuing to try new vegetables and fruits but we’re also adding dairy: yogurt and meat protein: chicken to her variety. up until now her only source of liquid was milk but now that she’s been eating solids, she can have water!

in addition, i started keeping track of how often k eats each foods we have introduced her to so she has a regular variety. on her Sunday daily notes sheet, i put a little tick each time a food is included in one of her meals and she eats most of the dish, example of 1 week:
