    Default Which solid food is always a hit with your baby/toddler?

    Red lentils & sweet potato (make balls and freeze)

    Chickpeas

    Cut up veggies (cucumber, carrot, celery, caps)

    Raisins/sultanas/cranberries

    Rice cakes (u can get apple & cinnamon flavoured ones) in adults not baby aisle for much cheaper

    Also recommend annabel karmels food books - many great ideas and easy to follow

    A big thanks for all the great ideas! So good to read that lots of your little ones are happy with cut up veggies. Mine used to give them a red hot go, but had no teeth. Now has teeth but won't eat them!! He still loves homemade hummus, just not into the veggie dippers.

    I really want to give those chicken apple meatballs a go. They sound yummy!

    Sweet potato, roasted. Any kind of fruit but big hit is banana. Also pizza bread dd just love and did since she was very very young to munch on that. I used to give her a piece about the size of a 20 c piece and she went stupid over it!!

    Bananas! I have to be careful to avoid bananas in the grocery store otherwise DS will see them and start shouting "NANANANA!!!"
    He is a great eater and eat pretty much anything I put in front of him.

    Grapes are a winner and sweet potato. Also loves noodles, but that's a messy one.

    DD (18mo) is a bottomless pit at the moment and will devour most things, but favourites are:

    Fruit - especially banana, kiwi, blueberries, strawberries, pear, grapes
    Dairy snacks - cheese & yoghurt, even the slightest mention of either of these sends her bolting for the fridge
    Pasta - with bolognese or another hit is an avocado 'sauce' made with avo, lemon juice, olive oil and garlic whizzed in the mini food processor (I mix in some steamed peas at the end). I also make spinach and ricotta cannelloni which she loves.
    Veg - sweet potato chips baked in the oven and peas are the biggest winners, and mashed potato
    Baked beans
    Bread - toast or sandwiches (an avo and cream cheese sandwich gets devoured)
    Scrambled eggs
    Meatballs - either beef or chicken in a tomato based sauce

    I'm sure there's heaps more, as I said she just eats constantly lately!
