Stuck for lunch ideas for my nearly 9 month old DD. I seem to do the same thing - sandwich fingers, jacket pot or beans on toast. Anyone have any more ideas? (She doesnt like egg). Thanks!

Chunky soup if spoon fed, hummus and breadsticks/crudites for when they want to eat with their hands. Or keep a small portion of last night's tea aside, I often used to do that when mine were that age.

Big chunky pasta shapes and pesto/tomato sauce? Will she eat eggy bread? Savoury pancakes with melted cheese, or other fillings. Chicken leg, my ds loves these as he likes to hold the 'handle' and gnaw.... I always find protein best at lunch and carbs at teatime.

Oh, and loaded potato skins, scoop the middle out of a jacket and add tuna and cheese or ham and cheese, you could add egg as well if you want her to eat it without her knowing. We all eat these, ds is lucky to get a look in!

Anything you'd feed her for dinner

Soft steamed/boiled vegies
Bits of meat/chicken/sausage
Pasta with sauce
Casseroles and curries
Cut up cucumber, capsicum
Cut up fruit
Sandwiches with different fillings to normal - tuna mayo spread thinly, cream cheese, low sugar jam
Couscous with puréed vegies/sauce mixed in
Roasted vegetable cubes - potato, pumpkin, carrots

I find quiche excellent as it melts easily enough on their mouth but holds together quite well.

Sweetcorn fritters - there is a good bbc food recipe

American style pancakes good too

Thanks v muh all - some really different things there that i wouldnt of thought of. DD will eat egg in things like the savoury muffins that i made but not on its own. I havent tried eggy bread with her - will try that.
