Ok, we are staying in a motel and I am being so not creative feeding my ds.

Any simple meal and snack ideas for a 14 month old? He has not had any nuts yet (my dh has bad nut allergies) and he doesn't have molars yet. We have a small fridge and a microwave. Anything easy to pick up at a grocery store or fast food restaurant would be good, too.

So far we're doing a lot of breastmilk, about an avacado a day, bananas, spinach quesadillas, and bean burritoes all the time.

just in terms of snacks...applesauce, veggie booty, organic yogurt, string cheese, crackers in hummus.

we still make a meal here and there of a wide array of snacks...

hope that helps. (isn't it nice to know that your little one is getting such ggod nutrition by nursing? i still feel that way, and my little one is nearly 2! but he goes whole days without eatting much of anything besides breastmilk...ha!)

-Baby carrots (steam them with a little water inthe microwave...it takes about 2min for 6 of them in our microwave and dd loves them!)

- Whole wheat bagels with nothing or with cream cheese or a little butter

- VEGGIE BURGERS!!! (Kiera ADORES them and her obsession with "hamburgers" began @ around 14 months)

- I second the microwave Mac "N CHeese - add some steamed veggies and viola - a meal!

- Grapes and cherries really do keep forever in the fridge and are ocnvenient.

- Has enyone said yogurt in a tube? Dd loves that and it doesn't require utensils!

HTH...I will keep thinking...

Chunked extra firm tofu and frozen peas (thawed, natch) have been good for the Small Friends when they've been about that age.
