What are some things you feed your toddler when you're in a rush and have nothing prepared?

Gerber Graduates, the meals that come in the microwaveable trays. They are ready in 30 seconds, and he actually eats all the veggies when I mix them with the sauce or gravy in the entree. He loves the turkey and chicken meals with mashed potatoes and gravy and veggies, and the pasta and veggies in cream sauce with green beans.

PB&J sandwich is always a hit, hot dog and mac-n-cheese (the microwave kind), or quickie pizza (toasted white bread with a little pizza sauce on it, sprinkled with the italian 4 cheese blend that comes in a bag).

We do the graduate meals too, but Connor can eat two at one sitting. So I always have to add other stuff to them. I also give him the microwavable hamburger helper. I have to add veggies and stuff to that too, of course. It's quick though!

Most of the time he eats super healthy so I'm okay with giving him these when necessary.

I feed Natalie the gerber graduate meals most of the time when we are in a hurry or we are having something she won't eat

Oh, I just thought of a couple more. They're not quite as fast, but they're easy. I buy the Birds Eye Voila meals (lol, DH can't pronounce voila) and the Stouffer's Skillet Sensations. I love any prepared meal that has the meat included. It's almost too easy and he gets his veggies too. I put the leftovers in the fridge and he finishes it within a few days. He's a piggy though.

We do quesadillas too. Can't believe I forgot those. He loves them.
