10 Month Old Feed Schedule and Food Menu Ideas

At 10-months old your baby should be enjoying three solid meals a day. She will also be ready to tackle more complex foods as solids gradually replace milk as the main source of nutrition. Your baby will still need 500-600ml of milk per day until the age of 2.

Below is an example feeding schedule with food suggestions to give you an idea of how to nutritionally structure your little one’s day. It should just be used as an example to help you plan meals and mealtimes. There’s no need to stick to it rigidly or serve the same menu day after day. It’s important to give your baby a variety of foods. The more foods you can introduce them to while they’re young, the less chance of them becoming fussy eaters as they grow up. A mixture of spoon fed and finger foods is great for variety. Let your baby set the pace and be your guide. 

Aim to serve your baby the following daily portions:

 

  • 3-4 servings of starchy foods such as potato, bread, pasta or noodles.
  • 3-4 servings of fruit and vegetables
  • 2 servings of protein such as meat, fish, eggs or beans.
