Just wondering about the amount of food a baby should eat

Hi
I have a health 10 month old baby boy who loves his food, But I am wondering if I am over feeding him, Just wondering about serving sizes and the amount of food a baby should eat. At the moment this is his diet:
Bfast- 1 weetbix, and 1/2 to 1 piece of wholemeal toast
Mornign tea - 1 banana or other fruit
Lunch vegies, and sometimes a 1/2 vegemite sandwich
Afternoon tea more furit or a milkarrowroot biscuit or cruskit or youghut
Dinner Vegies and meat and sometimes a yoghurt

IS that too much?
thanks

Leann...
Answer: Hi There, It sounds to me as though you are blessed with a great little eater. If you bub is happily eating his solids and they aren`t interfering with is `milk` intake and growing at his usual rate it is likely that he is going just great. My son ate just as much, so it really does look fine. All the best, Leanne
