DD mostly has finger food although some jars too. But I really don't know what to give her when we are out. For example today we were going to eat out but were running late so DH and I stopped and got sandwiches. She won't eat cold jars so what could I have bought in Sainsbos to give her which isn't just fruit? I am really stuck for ideas.

I tend to cook some carrots/brocolli/peas and maybe some salmon or chicken in advance.
My DS quite happy to eat it cold.
I can't think what you could buy to give.
Maybe breadsticks and hummous?
Bread and cheese
Yoghurt afterwards
Not sure ...

Well today I took out a tub of mixed veg, cold cooked pasta, bits of chicken and bits of cheese and just let her at it. She chucked it on the floor and played around a lot but some went in and it was much more fun for her. Thanks for the suggestions.

Rice cakes, with philly, or a teensy bit of marmite, or get the flavoured ones - apple and cinnamon are nice (I get these for me, not DS blush)

Steamed carrot sticks and babycorn have always been a hit with DS.

Have also bought pitta bread, philly, some little sticks of cheddar and some dried apricots so hopefully I can knock something up out of that. She absolutely adores my muller rices. I don't give her the fruity bit at the bottom so it's just rice pudding really but she will not touch any type of baby rice pudding with a barge pole.

eyeballs, tesco do pudding rice, which you just mix in the rice with milk and heat up for about 5 minutes. (supposed to then put sugar in but i leave this out).
so much cheaper than buying pots of rice (see me on my skinflint mo, as maternity pay stopped last month!!)
ps can't go wrong with a tub of bits and bobs! leftovers are fab. dh and i are eating so much better, as i make stuff, so that ds can have it following lunchtime.
