    Default BLW lunch ideas please

    Just after some ideas for my 7 months old lunch...Lately it's been sandwiches,scrambled egg,or fruit,like myself and the older kids,but I don't want to give DD bread every day....I don't have a lot of time to specially make something at that time of day so quick and easy things would be great.
    Dinner is usually whatever we are having, or steamed veg and fruit.
    Thanks

    At that age for lunch I would make a batch of homemade finger foods and freeze them for lunches or if we were going out to someone's home for dinner, I also don't give bread everyday , rice cakes with avocado or almond butter is still our favourite quick lunch or snack when I have nothing else prepared!


    - nuggets - either chicken or turkey or salmon with veggies, chia seeds

    - fish or crab cakes - again with herbs and veggies

    - mini meatballs - I did lamb or beef

    - mini falafel balls

    - ricotta pasta - boil pasta and toss through ricotta cheese and cooked peas ( or spinach)

    - mini pizza - I make a batch of dough and just defrost as needed, DS liked spinach, feta and tomato pizza

    - zucchini slice, make it in mini muffin tins , easy to hold and perfect size

    - corn fritters

    - grazing plate - boiled egg, cheese, dips, cherry tomatoes, olives , cucumber

    - egg pancake- 2 eggs, herbs, tomato ( or whatever vegg I have) chia seeds - mix and fry in mini frypan ( pancake size ) cut into strips - takes exactly 3 minutes

    Some great ideas already.

    Veggie mini muffins
    Frittata
    Homemade chips (potato and sweet potato)
    Roast veggies (my baby will eat these cold, so I cook enough to last a few days)
