    Default Help me - non-perishable food recommendations for friends babies/toddlers

    Hey ladies,

    We have a lot of friends with babies and toddlers (we are ttc) and I need some ideas for non-perishable food so I can have little snacks for them to eat. Any ideas?

    Also, should I get a few toys? Any ideas?

    I am also going to buy a baby gate for entertaining on our deck.

    I hope this doesn't make me seem crazy since we don't have kids yet. I just want to be baby friendly!

    That is very sweet! If you go to he baby food section of the supermarket, they have sugar free biscuits, muesli bars etc. for littlies. I would grab a few boxes of those (just check the expiry date, but they tend to last a while.) Fresh fruit is always a good option, though

    As for toys, just some basic stuff would be OK. Perhaps some wooden blocks or cars, maybe a couple of kid's books, pencils and a colouring book? A ball always seems to be popular!

    Agree that fresh fruit is always a winner! As is toast.

    Or you could make mini muffins and freeze them?

    I usually have some biscuits here, but generally fruit is the winner. Bananas, kiwi fruit, mango, avocado, strawberries, watermelon, rockmelon, honeydew melon, all easy for bubs and toddlers.

    With toys, I have one small plastic container with a few board books, some peg puzzles, a little box of wooden alphabet blocks, a couple of rattles, a little glo toy that plays music, think that's it. I keep it in the cupboard in the hallway to use when littlies turn up.

    Thanks for all the tips!

    I bought a baby gate on Sat and was able to use on Sunday!
