Snacks for LO's

What are your go-to healthy snacks for LO's? DD is 11 months and is constantly asking for food all of a sudden. I still nurse her a million times a day, whenever she asks. I guess she is just really excited about food now. Or maybe she really does need a little more in her tummy now that she's more active. I need some good ideas for food that she can have throughout the day. I was letting her have some organic Cheerios knock-offs since it's such an easy and mess-free food (until I step on them lol), but her Eczema has gotten bad all of a sudden and I think it may be a wheat sensitivity. Thanks for your suggestions!

 I always liked those mesh things in the store where you can put fruit in and they can chew and suck on it but you don't have to worry about them choking.

Peas are a good idea. I'm trying to find things she can eat on the go because she's all over the place now! I don't want to make her sit in her high chair every time she wants a snack because I'm always eating on the go too, kwim? I haven't done dairy yet. She seems to have a sensitive digestive system so I'm holding off on that.

 totally understand! I didn't do dairy until later either. There are almond, coconut or soy based yogurts as well. Also dairy based yogurt digests very differently than other dairy products. Dr. Sears says instead of brat diet, that you can do the braty diet (bananas, rice, apple sauce, toast and yogurt) when you have stomach issues. If you are not wanting dairy based yogurt, than the other ones are good :) We didn't do much of highchairs either until much later as well. For the eggs, you can hard boil the eggs and give just the yolk :)

Steamed carrot sticks worked really well when my dd was that age.

I haven't tried yet. She only has two bottom teeth, Idk if she could bite into them yet. But I may try some chunks in a mesh feeder.

DS loved applesauce.  We purchased cups of organic (comes in a package with 1/2 plain and 1/2 with cinnamon) from Costco then DS would drink the thick applesauce using a straw...

I just found out that breaburn apples are soft enough for my dd to eat better then other kinds.
