My son will be a year on May 1st and I was wondering what you other moms feed for snacks. We use the gerber snakcs a lot but is there anything else that we can give for good snacks? I saw another woman on cafemom say she gives her child goldfish, are these ok for him?

  • My son is one and i give him greber snacks, unsalted saltines, chez its, cherrios, toast, chesse, gold fish are fine. One years old can eat almost anything you can just in little baby bits. My son eats what we eat just small bites (if i make something good and healthy, if not he eats greber toddler foods)

  • I take the cheese they sell in cubes and cut them in fourths. Fruit cut into tiny bits, too. Tiny bits of broken crackers. Frozen peas nuked in a cup of water for a couple of minutes are one of his faves. Cooked, diced apples and pears. Banana slices cut into quarters. Canned canellini beans cut in half (he LOVES them). Pasta spirals cut into smaller pieces.

    My kid's not difficult to please. :)

  • Babies love avocado (and they are loaded with brain-building good fats); frozen blueberries; hummus; baked sweet potato spears; puffed rice; puffed kamut; cooked beans; tofu chunks (also fun to squish between those cute, chubby fingers); kiwi (more potassium than banana, more vitamin C than an orange)
