Bananas, Apples, cut up sandwiches (simple ones like vegemite), a plate of crackers with deli meat cheese & pickles etc, or as the others said bake when DH is home.
Then you could do healthy whole wheat muffins, veggie scones, noodle cakes are great! (Just packet noodles less the seasoning boiled and cooled, add grated carrot or zucchini, frozen peas & corn, egg and cook in fry pan! Great for your DD too (if she can eat egg?)

Ooo yes coconut oil and coconut cream or milk are great dairy substitutes, dh often bakes banana cake using these instead of butter and milk.

I used to live of those nut bars after having DS. Also cans of tuna...fruit. Maybe those squeezie yoghurts? All very good for milk production and a healthy mama

When breastfeeding I loved dried apricots. They had to be the Angus Park Soft and Juicy ones though! Although not really cheap.

I lives on hommus, crackers and veggie sticks. I made the hommus so it's cheap as and made a huge batch at a time. A few tins of chick peas, few cloves of garlic, tahini, olive oil, cumin. Would cut up a few carrots/cucumbers etc and have them in a container in the fridge so could just grab both containers, a packet of corn thins and munch away. Good iron and protein too.

Grapes and nuts were my go tos in the early weeks.

I had bananas at all times of the day and night when I was breastfeeding.
The other thing I loved for about the first 6 months was Up & Go. I had one overnight when I was feeding, however the individual packs do work out expensive. I'm not sure how the 1tr cartons compare, but they were great to help with hunger.
Nuts/Seeds/Sultanas were good to nibble at. I kept a small container in a basket that I had a bottle of water, the phone, burp cloths etc in that sat next to the couch where I usually fed.
Otherwise smoothies are also a great option if you can find time to pre make them.

You can pre make and freeze smoothies. I blend some berries, banana, yogurt honey and flaxseed and freeze them in iceblocks, then defrost them and mix 50/50 with some milk. This is what I often have for breakfast, much better than hauling out the blender every day.

I was going to suggest a trail mix- mixture of any nuts and dried fruits that take your fancy.
I would just stick with natures foods I think as the main source- veg sticks, fresh fruit- even the little tubs of fruit that SPC do?
Then things like crackers and dip, muesli bars (bought or homemade), yoghurt etc.
Maybe with the veg sticks you can chop them up when both the kids are in bed and then store them either on damp paper towel in some tupperware or actually in water?

I never thought of coconut milk as a substitute. Thanks for that suggestion
I have discovered almond milk is actually really yummy
