A friend of mine recently posted a recipe for fried Cherrios - scoop of butter in the skillet, melt then put in enough Cherrios to cover the bottom and add salt. Haven't tried it yet, but I'm willing to bet it will go over well, with the salt factor and all...

Hope eats cheese like it's going out of style...good thing we live in Wisconsin! :) Other snacks include crackers of any kind, she loves the wheat thins toasted chips-the garlic/rosemary ones! Nutragrain bars, high-fiber flat bread cut up with peanut butter on it, yogurt. Wow we need more variety it looks like!! Poor kid! When she's by my mom's house, I'm sure it's nothing but baked goods and other sugary snacks--those grandmas!! Although, it's all my brothers and I ate growing up, and we turned out ok :)

applesauce cups, clementines, bananas,cheerios, cheese crackers, vanilla cookies. I also make a yogurt/oatmeal bar the recipe is on the back of the Quaker oatmeal can - I add raisins and some chopped up frozen fruit like blueberries or raspberries to it. She likes Gardenburgers cut in strips, lunch meat like turkey or chicken and cheese slices

Orren likes apple slices (peeled), edamame, cheerios, peanut butter on homemade whole wheat bread, bananas (his favorite thing in the world!!), bagel, cucumber, strawberries, tangerines, cheese, tuna on crackers, and yogurt.

The bottom line is Orren will eat anything that does not eat him first!! His favorite thing is veggies and fruits, though. I love that about him!

My 13 month old son loves fruit (cut up apples, strawberries, grapes, bananas, etc.) and yogourt of any flavour (Dairyland Lil Ones it is naturally sweetened with fruit juices). He also LOVES chick peas (raw or roasted with different spices!!)! Also can't go wrong with cubes of cheddar. Sometimes, I'll make little pinwheel sandwiches by flattening a piece of whole wheat bread (can also use tortillas) and putting different ingredients on it (peanut butter & bananas, cream cheese & veggies, etc.) then rolling and cutting into little pieces.

OMG, Kendra, my daughter LOVES mini marshmallows LOL. It's so bad I know, feeding a baby marshmallows. She also cannot go into a Starbucks with me and not get a petite scone or one of those madeline cookie cakes, she goes nuts if I don't get her a treat, I've created a monster. She also eats the good stuff! She loves applesauce & yogurt and I keep trying cottage cheese but she doesn't like the texture I think. We tried regular cheese cut up small but she doesn't seem to like that yet either but she did munch on some bits of quesadilla w/ the cheese melted inside. As far as other stuff she can just eat all by herself: Nilla wafers, graham crackers, fig/fruit bars & cookies, cereal puffs, white cheddar cheese puffs, left over pancakes or french toast cut into bits. All kinds of fruit chopped up like bananas, pears, fruit cocktail cups, anything soft enough really w/o the skin and steamed veggies. Hot dogs are too salty so I still buy those little turkey sticks in the baby food jars. She's teething late, just now getting all 4 front teeth at once, so I feed her cold raw apple slices and baby carrots in those little mesh teething feeders. I also got a bunch of new suggestions from your posts, thanks mommies!

Is a sultana a raisin or a grape? Or both? I'm not familiar. I give my daughter grapes cut in half or in quarters if they are large. Raisins don't seem to 'digest', as I find them in the diaper later that day. We eat avacodo, bananas, cherrios, puffs, bits of ham and cheese, any fruit or peices of granola bars (soft ones) for snacks. And she loves fruits smoothies, homemade or the premade type you buy where the yogurt is sold.

There are a lot of good ideas on here. I usually give him crackers, fruit, string cheese, apple sauce and rice krispy treats that you can buy. It is nice to see some different ideas. We just tried banana peanut butter sandwich and he likes it my 3 year old loves it.

my daughter LOVES food... but I find that one of her favorite snacks is crackers I usually give her gram crackers... I just tried fig newtons as well and she seems to like them. Yogurt, fruit cups, wheat toast, and there are tons of snacks that I have for her from the baby isle at the grocery store.

My son's favourite food is banana - he could even say it at 11 months "nuh-nuh-nuh" which he's now shortened to "naan" and refers to any food. He loves mango lassi's (like a mango smoothie but made with natural yoghurt and little milk), peanut butter toast, sultanas (but only if I split them open first). He eats and eats and eats!

I love that there are so many mommies on here from all over the world. We dont have much vegemite here in the states.... I dont think I've ever tried it.
Anyways, our little boy eats all day long, so we like to give him bananas, softened apples, string cheese, nutrigrain bars, mandarin oranges. Really any fruit. When we go on car rides, string cheese is nice because its not messy. We also get the graduates yogurt melts for the car for the same reason. Blake is picky, but those are his faves! Hmmm.... I just read dried fruit... havent tried that yet. Sounds like a good idea!!
