DD has decided she likes to eat lunch in the living room rather than in her highchair. I think it's because she's started walking, so wants to be free to move around. In the highchair, she eats nothing! So I need ideas for healthy balanced lunches that won't wreck my carpet please! She won't eat bread. Atm I'm giving her a bit of cheese and fruit usually, but aren't they supposed to have 3 portions of carbs a day? TIA!
Breadsticks is a good one, and cubes of cheese too. How about plain boiled pasta?? My kids love that, used to take it on picnics too. Ham/turkey/chicken on it's own. Cant you just persevere with the high chair and save yourself the hassell???????
I actually don't mind her walking around with food. I don't always eat at the table, so I don't expect her to. She's only 13 months, and I'd rather her be relaxed about food than make it a big battle to persuade her to eat. I am sure it's just a phase, and she won't mind as much when she's used to being able to walk. She's in her highchair for breakfast and tea, although she eats very little then, so I don't see that there is a problem. She has a lifetime to perfect her table manners. Thanks for the ideas, I will be using them for future lunches.
