    My twins are 13 months old but i keep giving them the same stuff for snacks + trying to save money. any ideas on snacks they can have between meals. they do have the odd biscuite but i try and stick to healthy foods.
    at the moment they like

    Rasiens
    bluberies
    grapes
    biscuites
    bread sticks
    banannas
    apples (infact most fruits)

    I usualy give them yogurt or fruit for desert and they eat quite healthy meals. but fruit is getting very expensive as they eat such alot of it. anyideas on snacks that are not fruit? maybe something i can make and frezze. I will still be giving them lots of fruit and veg but think cutting it down alittle wont hurt them or my bank balance.

    oh and we do BLW so can eat most things.

    How about a bit of toast.
    Organix do rice apple cakes, or blueberries rice cakes they are delicious and full of wholegrains so they are nutrious, they are cheap and keep lo fuller for longer

    Or if you wanted to do it a lot cheaper buy your own big plain rice cakes and put sliced kiwi or strawberries on them.
    Organix do loads of little puff things.
    Bread sticks. My lo loves crackers and also chunks of cheese.

    What about dried fruit? We don't buy the ones from the baby aisle, we get it from the baking section. A big bag of things like chopped apricots or date and I just put them in a little tupper ware pot if we go out.

    What about normal rice cakes, crackers, breadsticks.

    Banana or cheese muffins you could freeze and just defrost and warm up.
