I'd like to keep some back up food/snacks in the pantry for babies or even young toddlers. I've bought rusks, apple, pear, and vanilla custard. The parents provide food, but I feel better having a back up supply. What would you stock? (of course, I am aware of dietary requirements of all babies and children in my care)

I have seen these things like ruslks but they are rice. The mum of the 4mo has already given me a box of S26 sachets for back up, which is good of her.

There are Baby Mum-Mum Rice rusks which my dd loves. They are rice with a tiny bit of potato added in and they are big and yummy according to my dd. They come in packs of 2, so you don't need to open a whole packet of rice crackers/etc to give the baby one or two.
Otherwise I think your list of pureed fruit and custard and standard rusks is fine. Maybe pureed vegies in a jar (eg. sweet potato/pumpkin) as well.

Yes, Baby Mum Mum, I kept thinking something inappropriate but yes, that was them. I'm after things I can open 1 or 2 at a time.

baby mum mums are great. my kids both loved them. they also love (and still eat at 4 and 2) raffertys garden squeezie fruits. such an easy and healthy snack. what about some kind of cereal like sultana bran buds? they are easy to store and to put on top of yoghurt to bulk it up a bit!
goodluck with it all!
