Need ideas for finger foods for 12 month old that can be frozen in batches for cm

Ds has just started to refuse to be spoon fed his main savoury meal in the last week. He is fine being fed his desserts (fruit, yoghurt etc). I work full time and I need to provide dinners to my mum who looks after him. I'm not very adventurous and I don't time to cook every day. What I need is ideas for finger foods that I can freeze in batches, ideally 3 or 4 different meals that will cover all of his nutritional requirements. They need to be easy for him to eat because, although he is 12 months, he has only just cut his first tooth.

what about making a normal packed lunch and have a hot meal in the evening? easy to pack up some sandwiches, bit of fruit, maybe a sausage or some cold quiche.

Thanks ruddynorah. He has his hot meal around 4:30 - 5pm at my mum's. If I made dinner when I got home he wouldn't eat til 7pm. I was thinking of giving him dinner a bit later but I would still need something I could defrost the night before and heat up when we got home.

Thanks for the ideas beans and knickers. Will give those a go. I don't think mum will mind a bit of mess smile

Mum doesn't eat til after the kids have gone home. She's a registered cm and doesn't finish work til 6.

This is the one thing I dislike about BLW - not being able to just grab something from the freezer and blast it in the microwave. I do sometimes make pasta sauces though (bolognese, cheese sauce, chicken & veg etc.) and freeze those, so all you need to cook is some pasta. Fusilli pasta is perfect finger food if you stir it all really well so that the sauce sticks in the grooves.

ooooh - I've been roasting potatoe wedges (just quarters of potatoe in a little oil)and sweet potatoe fingers at the weekend when cooking other stuff and putting them into little portion bags in the freezer to get me through the week - they seem to go down really well and are zapped in the mic in seconds.

Now I sound like some super organized person. Isn't amazing how the internet can be misleading :-)

Also frozen chunky vegetables steam really well in the microwave. I tried to freeze roasted veg sticks though and they just went all mushy.
