His weight is on the 5th percentile and his height is below the 5th percentile for his age. At one year old, generally children can come off of infant formula. He can have finger food at this age and feed himself with his fingers/spoon. 4oz of milk is equal to 1/2 oz of cheese, or 1/2 cup of yogurt, or 1/4 cup cottage cheese to be used as a daily substitute for milk. As a guideline for a 12 month old child should eat the following: Dairy 3 feedings a day – Milk (4oz), cheese (½ oz), yogurt (½ cup), or cottage cheese (¼ cup). Starch 4 feedings a day – Cereal (¼ cup), pasta (¼ cup), rice (¼ cup), bread (½ slice), or crackers (2). Fruits & Vegetables 4 feedings a day – Fruits (including 100% juice limited to only 4-6ozs) & Vegetables (¼ cup). Protein source 2 feedings a day – Meat or fish (1oz), egg (1), or beans (¼ cup). Here are some more suggestions to increase his calcium sources: Give him yogurt, yogurt smoothies (yogurt, fruit, and ice cream blended), all types of cheeses, ice cream, puddings, put cheese on vegetables or make them with heavy cream sauce. Mix yogurt into fruit and have snack cheese sticks. Make pasta and cheese or add cheese to rice and beans. Some children will accept whole milk if you add chocolate or strawberry flavor mix to it. Hoped this helped you.
