    Can you have him sit on your lap with his food in front of him and yours far away? That's what I do if we are at an event where we don't need a booster. Or like him on one knee with you facing the other direction with your food. If that makes sense.

    And I usually bring cheerios/puffs/organic snack thingies but that's usually just to hold him over while we wait for our food. He generally gets whatever we eat, or we order a side of veggies for him. BLS is great!!!

    I've done this before while we've been out at picnics or downtown, and it's worked reasonably well for us.

    I usually just get something for myself that I am comfortable giving to X, or I'll bring some fruit, veggies, some cut up roasted chicken or beef, cheerios, and/or those organic freeze dried yogurt snacks if I know there won't be anything that I can give him.

    The others have covered what I use to take with us when we were out and about. I found the easiest things were whole apples (peeled and cored early on, but left whole), and pieces of cheese. I found cheerios messy

    If it was a restaurant I didn't bring anything, and instead just ordered whatever veggie medley was being served and gave him things from my plate.

    This is my problem. With DS1 I could have a container of little things--cheerios, goldfish (the cracker, not the aquatic animal :grin) and he was able to pick them up reasonably easily. (Very good fine motor skills!) DS2 is much messier and could not just eat out of a bag or container if I didn't have a surface to spread them on.

    I am thinking I might fix him some toast. Easier to grab than crackers or cereal.
