hello, off to london this weekend and we're staying in a hotel.
we're going to cook lunch food up at friends for the baby (like sweet potato and brocolli) but in the evening we'll be back at our hotel which won't have any kitchen... just wondering what to feed my DD as she's quite used to have her little buffet of steamed brocolli, and a chunky puree type thing with toast or a rice cake.

i guess jars are the answer? along with avocado or tomatoes? anyone got any other tips? thanks

Hello again, Moodle! My DS loves avocado mashed with banana. You could still do the rice cakes with that. Is your DD a BLWer? If not, you could bring some veg puree/soup from your friend's and give it cold. I know it seems vile, but my DS will eat anything at any temperature! I'm sure there will be plenty more suggestions soon... Will be keeping an eye on this thread myself

When I was in a similar position I used to swap lunch and dinner, so ds had his warm meal, veg and meat puree etc at lunch and then a finger food dinner, usually cold toast, a fruit, yogurt, cheese. The toast can be prepared or asked for at the hotel, you can buy fresh yogurt, cheese and fruit in the afternoon just before dinner. Or you could take a cooler bag with you to your friends place and take out the items just before you go to your hotel.

hello bristols! nice to see you again! yes, she likes to feed herself but to make sure she's eating enough i give her a pot of something as well, so she's a half and halfer!

mum2funkydude and littlelapin - good idea to swap lunch and dinner, will give that a go... not sure about room service, its only a novotel we're staying at.... but i guess we could run downstairs to a nearby caff and see if they'll do it for us.

thanks much!

A banana, and a yoghurt, and some toast, and a hot lunch should do fine!

excellent, consensus for hot lunches! much easier.
thanks again.

what about cous cous?, will she eat that?. only needs to soak some boiling water and hotel rooms usually have a kettle. i used to give it to ds with some chopped up cucumber and tuna, or cheese and tomato.

good thinking - she likes couscous, ta!

make some pasta in advance and when its cooked put it onto cold water to stop it cooking. you can mash the pasta now if needed and store in cold water. when u want to serve drain the water and put boiling water from kettel to warm up (you may need to do this twice if your DD likes her food hot like mine). You can add a little readymade baby puree or take your own (if u make it thick then you can add boiling water to heat it and make it less thick. give her some cheese sticks. Hope this helps.
