    Default Sandwich ideas for 1yr old

    I've just started my nearly 1yr old on sandwiches. We are both getting sick of veggies for every lunch & dinner, so I don't want him to get to the point where he refuses them altogether.

    He is allergic to dairy so it limits our food variety unfortunately. So far he has tried avocado, jam & ham with no problems. He already has vegemite and p'butter on his morning toast.

    Please suggest some other filling ideas we can try - remembering his age so can't be too thick or chunky. TIA.

    Turkey and cranberry? heheh. sounds a bit snobby but my toddler loves it.
    Mashed pumpkin on sandwiches.
    Creamed corn.
    Mashed banana.
    Has he tried spaghetti? Might be better when he's older - cold spaghetti jaffles, yum yum yum!

    Cashew or macadamia nut butters
    Hummus , baba Ganoush or avocado
    Mashed egg and lettuce
    Turkey or chicken & lettuce shredded
    Prawn and rocket ( chop prawns)
    Also try rice cakes or moutain bread wraps instead of bread all the time to mix it up!

    I am sure you check ingredients OP, but to save time for you tuna spread contains dairy

    Have you tried the soy cheeses on a sandwich? My fav brand is Cheezly mmm yum!

    Thanks yes I thought as much, but using plain tuna would be great.

    Unfortunately DS is also allergic to soy, so no cheese/yoghurt etc for him
