Portable and not too messy snacks for 8 month old

DD has very quickly got less keen on milk so needs some snacks on top of her three meals a day (still has milk morning and evening so getting 500ml a day which the health visitor is happy with).

At the moment she's eating a LOT of bananas. Possibly slightly too many bananas! What else could I try?

Also popular: babybel, rice cakes and peanut butter, pineapple chunks, strawberries, bocconcini
Not so popular: carrot/cucumber sticks

Ideally, things that can be popped in my handbag and not make too much mess!

(Appreciate everything is messy to some extent with an 8 month old, I meant more not messy to transport, I'm ok with her getting messy!)

My 9 month old is the opposite - slow to wean but LOVES finger food so we feed her by snacks. LOL YY we are all about banana too!

I take ... organix banana biscuits (bought but pretty ok ingredients), rice cakes, home made pastry cheese straws, washed raspberries, little egg "patties" made by baking beaten egg in a cake tin, brioche and croissant (mumsnet stereotype lol), bread sticks, cornflakes (she loves to eat them like crisps lol), bread with peanut butter or cheese spread.

I bought a mini cool bag off eBay which I store under the buggy. They have similar ones in poundland at the moment - just means cheese etc stays cool and fresh.

Hard boiled egg, pasta, steamed apple, raisins, toast, peanut butter sandwich, cream cheese sandwich. I'm a big fan of non staining snacks!
