i have a 15 mo that sometimes isn't all that interested in food at mealtimes which is fine if we are at home, i just keep what he doesn't eat around for when he gets hungry, but as soon as we are out & about and he asks for "snack" if we are just out running errands for an hour or so i usually just have a container of organic pretty healthy crackers, but i hate to have him filling up on these all of the time. i do sometimes bring fruit. just looking for ideas on foods that are easily transportable & not messy.TIA!

i have seen dehydrated corn and apples stuff like that at the health food store but never tried it. they look like they are easy to eat and take with you.

We're hsers, so we sometimes need to bring snacks to various outings.

We pack our snacks with a knife, napkins, & drinking containers, other necesseties e4tc. We tend to put whatever we like in the basket and go. No big plans, usually.

Apples and/or whatever fruits. Sometimes cut up in a container, mostly not. We most often cut once there. It's easier to grab things and pack them in the basket than to cut and decide at home. What we don't want/eat, we bring back.
Ice pack in summer
Jar of nut butter
1/2 loaf bread or crackers or pretzles
Cheese
Harboiled eggs
Carrot sticks (or other raw veggies, depending on what we have-- this is *much* easier in summer).
Baked goods (muffins, cookies breads)
Seeds/nuts
tortillas
hummus
leftovers
whatever we have and we like that tastes good unheated

ditto on hardboiled eggs. Bananas, cashews, orange, dried fruit, cubed raw cheese or cheese sticks.

when I know we will be out at snack time I will take cheese cubes, cut up fruit or small sandwiches. Basicly the sort of things we would have at home. Also a sippy cup with milk will usually hold DS over till we get home.

For just in case I tend to carry a little pot of dried fruit. Raisins are the current favorite, apricots are also popular. Rice cakes are another thing I regularly carry.
