I work at a day care with 12-18 mo olds. We have four 12 and 13 m.o.'s in my class, so I can help a little. One of the little girls always gets pasta and fruit, usually Annie's mac n cheese, berries, and canteloupe. Another little girl gets cut up canteloupe, smiley shaped fries, vegetarian meat balls, a slice of cheese, and some sort of veggie puff snack. One of my boys gets pasta, sometimes with red sauce, sometimes mac n cheese, shredded cheese, and cheerios. Another one of my boys gets cut up canteloupe and watermelon, pasta (with red sauce or cheese), and cut up chicken.
Really, whatever you feed the little one at home! Any kind of pasta, fruit, or PB on bread is always a hit in my class. Just send in left overs from the night before. Yogurt is another favorite in my class. HTH!
