    Default lunch/snack at dcp

    Lo is 9 1/2 months and I am at a loss as to what to send with him for lunch and snacks to dcp (my mom). I feel like I do the same things over and over. I do lots of fruit, yogurt, cheese, and oatmeal, but I need some new ideas. Its hard b/c I need something that doesn't need to be cooked and travels easily. Any good suggestions? TIA.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with the same thing over and over. But if you want some other ideas, I used to give dd strips of lunchmeat (usually turkey) and whole wheat bread and cheese. Or you could send cold cooked pasta with a bit of butter and parmesan cheese or black beans and rice (even better if she is willing to heat things in the microwave).

    If she is willing to heat things in the microwave you could just send leftovers from dinner the night before.

    my DS gets leftovers for lunch every day, plain veggies are great as a standby, green beans, english peas, steamed broc or cauliflower, baby carrots cooked well, a baked sweet potato, etc...

    I also agree with Paige, there's nothing wrong with sending the same things over and over... as long as your LO doesn't seem to be getting bored of those foods and is starting to refuse them, it sounds like you are sending good, healthy choices that are fine for a 9.5 month old.

    Not sure what all things your LO has had so far, but what about things like whole grain crackers, graham crackers, animal crackers, multi-grain or plain Cheerio's, soft pretzels, rice chex, cottage cheese, chedder cheese slices, pasta noodles, bread/toast, bagels, applesauce, bananas, mandarin oranges (canned), diced peaches, lunchmeat turkey...
