My 9.5 month old starts at the childminders next week and I am to provide her lunch.

Any quick and easy lunch ideas I can do the night before / in batches etc.

She’ll eat anything but really doesn’t like being spoon fed so more finger foods.

I know sandwiches are the go to but then I have a mind block hmm She struggles with vegetable sticks as only got two bottom teeth still and can’t seem to mush them up enough with just her gums grin

What about a box with lots of little compartments and fill each one with different things? Cooked strips of chicken, cubes of cheese, raisins, fruit fingers, sandwich fingers, crackers or breadsticks, ham, leftover cooked veggies?

Egg muffins are great for this age and you can get lots of veg/cheese into them.

You could ask your childminder. I asked ours just so my LO had something similar to others in the group. First day I went to pick her up I found her chomping on another child's lunch something that she refuses at home 😂
