So besides Puffs, what other finger foods are good for babies? Jon's school asked me to send in more finger foods, and all I have sent in so far were puffs and mum mums. I've been thinking baby goldfish, crackers?, those baby yogurt melt things, but whatelse do you guys give your little ones to pick up but that can be sent to school?

Mason has puffs, Mum Mums, cheerios, crackers, goldfish crackers, diced carrots, diced peaches, diced pears, peas and yogurt melts.

If you look in the regular grocery aisle with the canned veggies you can buy single serving sealed packs of peas, carrots, green beans and potatoes. They are really convenient and cheaper than the baby food. I also get the diced fruit the same way.

Yogurt melts, puffs, graham crackers, diced fruits and veggies, shredded cheese, diced tofu, and seaweed are some of Vi's fave things to eat that can be packaged up pretty well.

I realize it's not the most wonderful thing in the world (and we do them rarely), but you can get Lunchables that have mini Ritz crackers, diced ham or turkey and small pieces of cheese. If I need something quick and easy and portable for Kaija I grab one of them (they come 2 attached) and give Kolbie a few bites of each thing. Other wise we do the same as everyone else.

Riley's favorite finger foods are shredded cheese, yogurt melts (!!!!), puffs, graham crackers, diced apples, etc. This child LOVES food! She very rarely refuses anything.

You can buy mum-mums and yogurt melts at Babies R' Us, Target, and most grocery stores.

Caleb's a shredded meat and cheese fan, but I don't know how convenient it would be to send him to school like that, since they'd need refrigerated until eaten. Cheerios are a fave of Caleb's, along with the yogurt melts. We've never tried the baby goldfish crackers yet, but pretty much any healthy food chopped up into small slices worksfor Caleb: green beans, apples, cooked potato, peaches, strawberries, etc..
