Just wondering if you can please share some lunch ideas for bubs around 11 months old :D

Cubed chicken, cubed tofu, fresh steamed veggies, mac and cheese, tuna casserole, homemade soup, homemade sweet potato fries, mash potatoes, peanut butter and jelly cubes, homemade pork fried rice, cubed cheese of all sorts, cottage cheese and fresh fruit, yogurt and fresh fruit, bagel and cream cheese, pasta with homemade cream sauce, homemade hummus and pita bread, beans of all kinds, avocado salad with tomatoes and a small amount of mayo, grilled cheese...ok I'll stop there :) These are some of our son’s favorites. I offer a protein, veggies, fruit, grain and dairy with each meal. You could combine a few items listed above to create a complete meal. When all else fails our son has leftovers from the previous night’s dinner. Good luck and enjoy!

Have you also tried just crackers and cheese, my daughter loved doing that with small slices of meat like summer sausage or pepperoni with a juice box to drink.

my oldest is very picky and it seems that all she will eat is fruit and cheese which yes is good so try simple things like that she also loves pasta so i will cook up a small batch of pasta and sprinkle it with this garlic and parmesan cheese stuff that comes in a shaker that seems to work

If not allergic to peanuts, the PB & J is a great standby! My boy at that age loved mac n cheese the most, or spaghetti. I'll make it the night before and put all the leftovers in small containers. Freeze most of them, save one or two for the next couple of days. Always works. Fruit cups are also a big hit. I bought them for a while, then gave up. It's cheaper to buy the fruit and cut it up yourself, stick it in kiddie bowls with lids and let them go to town on it at lunch.

Make up some hotdishes he'll eat (like Hamburger Helper). Freeze in individual servings so you can take them out and warm them up on different days. I found that much easier than trying to make a meal each day. When all else fails though, there's always mac n cheese. :)
