    Default no fuss day pack snacks

    Good morning.

    I am looking for some healthy recipes that use normal everyday ingredients from an average persons pantry and fridge. These recipes should be aimed towards 1yr+ children.

    The recipes need to not require refrigeration (ie I can go out for the day without needing a cooler bag).

    Also preferably
    1. Be able to be made in bulk and stored either in the freezer or pantry for a decent amount of time
    2. Quick and easy to make
    3. No or little sugar

    I think that should about do it. I'm looking forward to all recipes and advice given.

    Happy hubbing!

    :-)

    I'll have a think about more later, but my DD LOVES these biscuits. She'd eat them all day if I let her.

    They freeze well, and are really versatile.

    You can swap the apple puree for eggs, swap/remove the dried fruit, add spices (ginger's a winner here), use quick oats if that's all you have, skip the coconut, add other seeds (I like poppy seeds in them)....etc.

    I put these zucchini savory muffins in my DD kindy lunchbox straight from the freezer so they are defrosted at lunch time and feed them to my 1 year old as well. They are delicious. I add a small tin of corn too.
    Also I use half cheddar cheese as it's cheaper and more mild than Parmesan.
    Grating all the veg is a pain but using a thermomix or food processer makes it super easy!

    I hope the link works I have never posted a link before on here!

    Actually I had taken frozen ones out the other day but my toddler got hungry and they were still basically frozen. I gave him one anyway and I think he enjoyed it more... Occupied him for ages too hahaha

    Wow thanks for the link Renn , I have just been cruising through this site and it has some great ideas, I'm def going to make these carrot cookies.

    I noticed they have a travelling lunchbox link with some more ideas on it as well http://onehandedcooks.com.au/the-travelling-lunchbox/

    When DS was that age and we were going to non friendly food places I just used to make zucchini slice in mini muffin tins or chicken/fish and veggie nuggets ( but I did have them in a lunchbox with a ice-block if we were out all day) or even easier I took rice cakes and an avocado ( just take the avocado keeper) or a small tub of almond butter and a little butter knife! Whole apples are great at that age as it keeps them occupied for ages!

    Wow guys thank you so much for your responses! I'll have a look at all of these ideas! My son Conrad sends his thanks! Bub number 2 is in the making so he/she will benefit from this also! Love to hear any more suggestions also. My kids will need lunch box snacks for a long while to come! ;-)

    Scones (lemonade or pumpkin or savoury etc...) freeze and defrost really well and don't need to be warm or cool. Mini muffins are also a winner here.

    Muesli or zucchini slice I use this recipe as a base and just tweak it to use whatever I have in the pantry http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/15978/muesli+slice

    I have some others but I'm shooting out the door so will be back.
