These are some of the foods I try to have on hand for Emma that are pretty easy or quick to prepare and usually require no cooking or a minimal amount of cooking:
Chobani Greek Yogurt Tubes – Supposedly greek yogurt is healthier than regular yogurt and Emma seems to enjoy this brand
Grapes – Just wash and eat! Some people are paranoid about choking so you might want to cut these in half if your little one hasn’t mastered chewing and swallowing yet
Watermelon – I like to buy the mini ones from Trader Joe’s and just cut it up to have ready when Emma wants a few pieces. Buying the smaller ones makes it easier to cut!
Bananas – One of Emma’s favorites! I also use it to make “healthy” ice cream and pancakes which I will write about in another post.
Raisins/Cranberries – Emma loves eating those little red boxes of raisins. We will also add cranberries to her oatmeal sometimes. I also recently discovered you can buy reduced sugar craisins so I might try those next time
Frozen Peas/Carrots – Sometimes when I make Emma’s meals I make her a bunch of little sides bento-style. This is an easy way to fill up one of the compartments.
Sweet Potatoes – These are great because they keep for awhile and you can either microwave them for a fast and tasty treat or cut them up into fries and bake them. Emma loves them either way
Dr Praeger’s Spinach Pancakes – One of those frozen foods that I have on hand since it incorporates veggies and Emma loves any type of pancakes
Trader Joe’s Microwavable Mac N Cheese – Surprisingly, Emma doesn’t really like mac n cheese except for this TJ’s version! Hey, at least it’s made of organic wheat macaroni hehe.
Trader Joe’s Veggie Sausage Patties – These are the best tasting veggie patties I’ve had and Emma loves them too
Green Chopsticks Frozen Dumplings – I love Green Chopsticks! They offer “all-natural” Asian food that are quick and easy to prepare. You can buy these at Costco!
Roasted Seaweed – Emma loves these but they can get a little messy!
