I need to find some more nutritional snacks for my daughter . She is wanting anything she sees when we are out and screams for it . She has never even had candy and she saw a bag at baby's R us ( at the hight of the stroller - how smart of them....) and started to scream for it. Help! I fear daily melt downs from her and me...

Right now I make all her food and she is also brestfeeding. She does not eat bread, pasta or grains other than Quinoa.

Lately we have been giving in if we are at families houses or at a restaurant and let her have a piece of bagel or bread to chew on . The last time I brought my own toast ( the sprouted bread) and gave her that.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

try firm tofu too - it's not too firm and it can be easily gummed. my two started eating it before teeth and at 9 & 7 still eat it. it doesn't have a lot of flavor but it's a great source of protein!

Thank you Iris,

She is 19 months old. and I guess I am not doing too bad, She loves bannans, and I do give her the rice "o"s that are veggie . Lately I have been giving her organic pretzels to chew o ( she loves these for teething) I have also given her teething cookies that are pretty healthy . I have not gotted her to eat may veggies that are not pureed in her food. She loves plain yogurt and I use it to get her to eat her meals sometimes. I just wanted to find out what other healthy minded moms do for their kids.

How old is your daughter? You could try giving her cut up bananas and those baby cookies , the ones that melt in her mouth. And if you want to give her some kind of junk food. Give her the soft cheesies, known as cheespleesers. They will melt in her mouth. You can also give her jello and puddings and yogart. The youngsters seem to like that !!!
