baby food?

Postby Nikki_1983 » Mon Jan 08, 2007 8:29 am

My partner and i are wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what we can feed our 16 month old daughter regarding to snacks.... she eats alot of fruit (strawberries peaches etc) but she also has been eating alot of chips when we are in the car (because its the easiest thing to give her which doesnt make a total mess) i dont mind giving her the occasional chip but just not as many as she has been eating.... she is to young to be eating carrot sticks or things of that liking at the moment....
we just really have no idea what else she can eat which is healthy...
any suggestions would be welcome

a friend of mine gives her son air popped pop corn, its very healthy and doesnt make a mess either :) also rice crackers are a healthier alternative but might be a bit hard to eat for a bub

hi nicki

i buy the heinz baby muesli bars for my daughter and she lives them- theyre in the baby food section at the supermarket. i also give her rusks dipped in vegemite, vegie sticks cut up- carrot, celery etc, you can give her some cooked pasta- like large spirals, sandwiches the possibilities are endless!

I was going to say the rice crackers as well. Or corn thins. They do make a bit of mess tho with the bits dropped but its not that hard to pick up when you stop. They don't have much fat in either. My girlfriend always had packets of corn thins all over the car!!! I cant really remember what I used to give my kids to snack on in the car. Its been too long!!!

u suppose it really depends on the time you have etc
but how about

carrot and cellery sticks
fruit like grapes in a containter
sultanas
a sandwich with vegemite cut up inot little squares
you could make her a container of foods like this and let her pick out of it.. while shes sitting on a towel lol.

my niece often has these little packets of cubed cheese in the car.. when i was little i remember my mum giving me a whole punnet of strwaberries and i would put the green bits in the lid lol... dammit now i want strawberries

My daughter loves fruit salad, so if we are traveling, i usually thread some of it on a paddlepop stick (not sharp like skewers!) and it stops alot of the mess. We usually have strawberries, watermelon, rockmelon, honeydew melon, bannana and pineapple. These work good if you freeze them too (especially for teething!!)

you can also make quiche and fritatas, and bake them in mini muffin tins instead of a big pie dish. They are little and manageable then. I usually make zuccini slice for mine. Hubby usually beats the kids to them though :lol:

Probably a little late but I give my girl sultana's, the baby museli bars, fruit, etc and you can also get these little cheese shapes. They are in the cheese section with the kids cheese sticks. Bega makes them and they come in little individual bags, very easy for on the go.

I think my kids were deprived when they were little - they all had water in the car :lol:

But then again, we didn't drive very far EVER so that was ok 8)
Every day I am getting thinner and thinner.....

Hi Niki,

I have a 12 month old daughter who is quite happy to nibble on precooked ravioli, blanched carrots and sultanas when we're in the car. Everything just goes into little tupperware containers, and I put a spare one in the car for all the extras bits that invariably get chucked across the back seat. Lydia loves to nibble and is constantly looking for something to eat ((don't know where she gets that from) so I always have to have food on hand for her.

Incidentally Macdonalds now do a Pasta Zoo happy meal will animal shaped ravioli, a dipping sauce, and milk as the drink - an option if you forgot to pack something, although it's quite expensive - $6 or so, and the temptation to grab somethign for yourself is there too.
