    My DS loves anything that's fallen on the floor and been there for a day or so. Especially if it has dust or hair on it!

    I make and freeze batches of banana or blueberry muffins. I do them sugar free made with almond meal, ans stir in a big spoonful of powdered super greens.

    Homemade muesli bars. I use the Donna Hay recipe but subsitute tge sugar for rice malt syrup, and use rice bubbles, dark chocolate, seeds, etc instead of dried fruit. Basically you can substitute anything in so long as it's the same quantities. Again, good for making in batches and freezing.

    Smoothies with yoghurt, milk & fresh berries or bananas, and a spoon of supergreens powder. This is also good for pouring into I've block moulds and frezing for a nice cold treat on a hot day.

    Pizza scrolls

    Home made chicken sausage rolls (great for freezing and just reheating when needed)

    Tasting plates - ham, cheese, rice crackers, vege sticks, sliced apple, etc with some dip.

    We did blw and my kids went straight to normal food at 6-7mths. Risotto, scrambled eggs, ravioli, home made meatballs, falafels and roasted vegetables in wedge shapes were very popular. Pikelets, home made sugar free banana bread and Apple/oat muffins were a good snack too.

    Plus the usual fruit ie watermelon, banana, avo, mango etc.

    DS18 months gets sooo excited when he sees bananas!
    So bananas , veggie muffins (flour, grated veggies like carrot sweet potato zucchini etc, cheese and egg) home made muesli bars (I use a variation of the one handed cooks oat and chia chews) and overnight oats (in a glass container day or 2 before I mix oats milk chia seeds purée fruit cinnamon probiotics and just stir). That's about all he gets excited for but will eat other things like a mild chickpea curry or a veggie stew.
    Also every now and then I do a batch of salmon/tuna patties (canned fish, quinoa, eggs, sweet potato etc)

    My DS2 is 13 months and will basically eat anything as long as it is frozen into an icy pole! So we do banana and yogurt and cinnamon, or fruit and vegetable combinations like orange, ginger, carrot and celery- made into a smoothie then frozen. My older kids think they're a real treat too!

    Are the muesli bars hard? I'm interested
