Babies: 9 - 12 Months

Snack Foods

At LO's nine month appointment, our pediatrician said to stay away from eggs, nuts, honey, and strawberries. She said anything else was fine to give her as long as it was soft. I've been trying to come up with some snack food ideas (that doesn't have to be prepared) for when we are in the car or in a store. I'd like to offer LO some variety. Here's the ones we are currently using: cheerios, puffs, yogurt melts, and lil crunchies. Anyone else have some ideas?

Thanks.

  • We do cherry tomatoes with mozzarella cheese, fruit, avocado, puffs and coconut cream melts.

  • We tend to do snacks that are fruits and veggies rather than real snack foods. We do cheerios though. Dried apricots, blueberries, pieces of plum, pieces of cheese, peas.

  • We do raisins, blueberries, or clementines for a lot of snacks. Raisins would be great for on the go!
  • Peas and blueberries buy me a lot of time!  And cheese.  Bananas.  I also look in the Italian section and buy cookies that are more cracker-like, not very sweet.  Call them "Dunkers" in my family ( to dunk in your coffee), but they are usually pretty airy so they dissolve easily.

    Raisins are a choking hazard from everything I've read. OP, I also would not give a baby this age snacks in the car as its also a choking hazard.

    I cut them in half, same with the other foods I mentioned.
  • There's a lot of new studies out that say to not delay foods, except for honey, unless there is a history of allergies. My dd has had all of the above with no problems.

    For snacks, our go to finger foods are dried fruit, fresh fruit like apricots, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and chopped veggies. Also dehydrated veggies, like corn, are a big hit! Once or twice a week, I will give her a fruit pouch. I think they are the laziest things, but great when you're out and about and in a pinch! Ha

    Also, I give dd raisins and she eats them just fine. I make sure that they are the plump, soft raisins, though.
  • DS loves blueberries, cut up peaches, pieces of string cheese, puffs, small pieces of whole wheat tortillas with a little hummus, mango slices. Basically anything I'm eating as a snack that is healthy and can be cut up into small pieces.

    He also loves grapes that are cut into fourths or smaller. I know grapes as a whole are a choking hazard but in really small pieces he does great with them and they are chewy enough that they are easy for him to gum and swallow. I only give him the grape pieces with me sitting right there with him. Those are his favorite snack.

    100% this! I never give DS snacks in the car.

  • Never knew about waiting on strawberries.  My 9 month old had a strawberry when she was 7.5 or 8 months and had no reaction.  But every Dr. is different.  I had a question for everyone.  My DD has no top teeth yet (coming in soon though I hope!) so are cheerios, crackers, etc good for her?  She has 3 teeth on the bottom (well really 2 b/c 2 are double tooth, fused together on the bottom).  I'm just worried about her choking b/c she can't chew the food up well.  She eats puffs and yogurt melts and small cut up bananas.

    We started strawberries at about 10 months maybe and they are his favorite food right now.

    DS is just getting his first tooth right now and he has done fine with Cheerios and things like that. I usually cut things up to be about the size of puffs or if I give him big pieces of something I make sure it's softer [like banana or bread] so he can break it off with his gums. I love hearing him crunch up Cheerios with his gums, they are tougher than we think.
