Meal recommendations for 1 year old in transpacific

I couldn't find recent results through searching, hence this thread.

Any recommendations for meal selection for a 1 year old embarking on a 22 hour series of flights? Is the NWA child meal selection in the mcnuggets family? Would we be better off to order an extra adult meal and share bits with the toddler? Any advice for appropriate snacks brought from home? thanks in advance.

The child meal isn't really for a 1 year old baby. Last weekend we flew DTW-NRT-ICN and was served ham-cheese sandwich, chicken nuggets, and ketchup fried rice with egg stars for our 17 months old. Skp the child meal request and ask for WBC left-over meals by -- playing NW forgetting to stock child meals onboard.

NW only boards child meals when they are ordered.

Will this be a lap child, or will they have their own seat. If it is a lap child, the only option would be a baby meal, which is several jars of baby food.

The best advice of all. You know your child best and what food they will tolerate. Why take a chance on something else?

Thanks for the comments, everyone. The toddler actually eats just about anything and has her own seat, so it looks like getting an adult meal and combining parts with some homemade snacks should do the trick.

If the toddler isn't on a regular ticket with a seat (not a 10% infant ticket), a regular meal won't be boarded, unless a baby meal has been requested.

Best to order a baby meal, bring snacks, and then hope for extra regular meals, but the crew wouldn't know if there was an extra until after the rest of the passengers have been served.

I recommend pureed peaches. That would be just "peachy"... wouldn't it?
