Now your child is 12 months old, they should be having 3 meals a day. They may also need 2 healthy weaning snacks in between (for example fruit, vegetable sticks, toast, bread or plain yoghurt).
Remember, they don’t need salt or sugar added to their food or cooking water. Children shouldn't eat salty foods as it isn't good for their kidneys and sugar can cause tooth decay.
Your child is now ready to eat healthier meals with the rest of the family — just in smaller portions and cut up into smaller pieces.
You can continue breastfeeding for as long as you both want. As your child eats more solid foods, the amount of milk they want will decrease. Once they’re 12 months old, first infant formula is not needed – toddler milk, growing up or goodnight milks are also unnecessary.
Our breastfeeding section has advice on breastfeeding when you go back to work.
