    Default Finger food suitable for travelling and eating out?

    We are about to head off on a two week driving holiday with 10 month old DS. He eats like a bird and increasingly refuses purees in favour of finger food so I'm looking for ideas on what I can feed him while we are away. He makes SUCH a mess with the finger food and I'm sure that it won't be appreciated at restaurants etc so I need something relatively tidy and something we can easily bring in the car or prepare in a hotel room. Your ideas would be very welcome!

    Some things I pack:

    - pre made toasted sandwiches, DS likes them cold
    - bananas
    - cut up apple
    - dried fruit
    - rice crackers
    - cold roasted veggies

    I like to pack things which are dry and usually only make crumbs - toasted sangas are the best for that and I always pack more bananas than I think I'll need.

    Don't worry about mess , my DS was BLW and we ate at a lot of restaurants ! just pack lots of bibs, wipes and avoid tomato based pasta! Most restaurants you can find easy finger food ideas so you don't always have to bring something , most can do you up a plate of steamed veg or pasta or noodles or eggs etc , at ten months he can eat what you eat

    The best no mess finger foods are rice cakes or cruskits, bananas , grapes, apples ( if he has teeth!) cut up cucumber, tomato, olives , melon etc and I always carried organic baby puffs ( happy baby brand ) and freeze dried fruit ( Bellamys organic do freeze dried apple)
