In order to make sure your 1 year old baby is eating a balanced diet, you’ll want to make sure he/she is getting a variety of foods throughout the day.

According to WebMD your 1 year old baby should be eating the following amounts of food.

  • grains (3 servings)
  • dairy (2 servings)
  • fruits (1 serving)
  • vegetables (1 serving)
  • protein (2 servings)

These foods can be at meal times and also snacks.
