    Hiya, I'm trying to get vegetarian ideas for lunches for madam. She only eats what we eat and what she can feed herself so other than bread and cheese and egg mayo I'm kind of drawing a blank. I'm wanting to get away from bread to some degree as she's mad for the stuff, I think it's the butter she loves as she turned her nose up at a piece and jam. Help!

    She's 11 months and had 7 teeth - no back ones yet though. I tried scrambled egg and toast yesterday but she would only eat the toast. I bought tinned fruit to try as well but she wouldn't even try the peaches. Keep the suggestions coming please.

    Cucumber sticks without the skin.
    Carrot sticks
    Crackerbread is quite soft.
    Bananas are so much fun, mess everywhere!
    Also..what about potatoe waffles...they go in the toaster for about 7 minutes and done!

    rhys loves sweetcorn patties!

    225g tinned corn
    3-5 tbsp flour
    ½ tsp baking powder
    5 tbsp double cream
    splash soya sauce
    salt and pepper
    sunflower oil, for frying


    Mix the corn, flour, baking powder, cream, soya sauce together in a bowl, add seasoning, and allow to settle for a few minutes before forming into small patties in the palms of your hands
    Heat a few spoonfuls of sunflower oil in a frying pan and lower the fritters carefully into the hot oil. make sure they are brown well on one side before turning over carefully onto the other.
    i usually give rhys a dollop of ketchup too
