What to Give Your Child After Weaning

With this menu, you can help the child go through the routine of washing his hands and face (especially after playing outside and after perspiring) before sitting down to eat. Let him eat the food slowly and chew the food well. The following menus are suggested:


6 a.m. – Glass of milk. This will keep him quiet while his mother prepares breakfast for the rest of the family.
7 a.m. – Breakfast with the family: Oatmeal or rice or bread broken into small pieces and soaked in milk or puto with margarine; soft-boiled egg.
10 a.m. – Mid-morning snack of fruit juice before and after his bath; then he takes his morning nap.
1 p.m. – Lunch consisting of broth with added strained vegetables like kangkong or camote tops, squash, chayong, etc.; scrapped beef or flaked fish; banana or papaya.
3 p.m. – cup of milk before he takes his second nap.
6 p.m. – Supper of rice with broth, a little mashed vegetable, flaked fish, scraped fruit.
One glass of milk before going to bed at night.


Two-year olds can be given more solid foods that can be chewed with their molars. At this time, the child shows a desire to feed himself, using his fingers. Cut up the vegetables, and the meat or the fish (deboned) into small pieces that he can pick up with his fingers and pop into his mouth.
