    Default Snack food ideas, please.

    DD has chosen, by herself, to go along the BLS road (she's 13 months, but is behind in her eating and developmentally).

    I'm looking for snack food ideas, this afternoon she's having scrambled eggs as I just don't know what to give her.

    I'm sick of just giving her toast, and so is she.

    I'm looking for DEAD EASY recipes and ideas.

    I'm not worried about mess, I used to be but am over it. She's making one hell of a mess with her scrambled eggs.



    Thanks, ladies.

    • yoghurt
    • mini muffins - sweet or savoury. someone posted a recipe on here ages ago for a recipe that is simply creamed corn, flour & cheese & you use the corn can to measure the flour & cheese. i often add grated vegies to it as well. DS absolutely loves them & they're nice warm or cold. they freeze well & they're a great size to pop in a snack box if you're going out. it's also nice not to have to measure all different ingredients etc. plus you can make any sort of muffins as healthy as you want.
    • home made pizza - using pita bread & some ham, cheese & tomato. quick & easy
    • mini quiche - there are some nice, easy, quick recipes around
    • crackers/vegie sticks & dip
    • fresh fruit
    • stewed fruit
    • plate of salad & cheese
    • cheese & biscuits

    Being a very non-cook person lol I keep it simple.

    Big hits in this family are boiled pumpkin, sweet pototo and carrots cut into sticks, hash browns, mashed up cantelope, watermelon, bubble and squek, weet bix. Homemeda lentil burger were a massive hit as they are nice and soft. Custard, fruit salad.

    My DD is unusually happy with eating veggies and prefers them over everything else, and she loves her fruit. She went through a stage of not eating so we had to come up with things that we could just leave her with rather than us sit and watch her. So we would do up platters with alittle bit of this and alittle bit of that IYKWIM.

    Quick and Easy snacks in our house are the following

    Cruskits - either plain or with some butter/vegemite
    Fruit Platters - a colourful mix is usually a hit
    Mixed platters - eg half a sandwich, some cheese cut into sticks, fruit bars
    Pasta - DS LOVES spaghetti (hot or cold) hahahaha

    hard boiled egg
    cooked noodles
    meatballs a bit bigger (but not rissole sized) so they have to 'bite' and can't shove it in all as once IYKWIM?
    I often make the muffins Sloane posted about and add ham or herbs or grated vegies
    cheese cut into sticks

    rice cookies / malt-o-milks
    leftovers - rice / couscous
    polenta that's been pressed and grilled with some parmasen and some leftover spag sause

    Cheerios / saveloys / "little boys" / ****tail franks (skinless)

    Toast fingers with vegemite & butter
