Once a baby turns one, whole milk may be substituted for formula and the milk should be offered in a cup. Breastfed infants can be continued to be breastfed if that is the mother and child’s preference. 

Appropriate finger foods for one year olds include cooked vegetables or soft fruits that are easy to grasp, pieces of whole-grain breads, crackers, macaroni noodles, soft cheese, and well-cooked pieces of hamburger or chicken, turkey, and tofu. 

When a child is offered a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables, grains, milk, and proteins, his nutrient needs will be met over the course of meals even if he does not eat foods from each food group at every meal.
