Need Help!

Dear Lovely Readers,

My daughter is less than two months away from a big diet change to more table food and less monochromatic (i.e., boring) food. She's doing great eating well--almost too well. My grocery bill is growing in leaps. This girl consumes A LOT of food at each meal. So, I'm looking to you for some new, fresh ideas. Here are the big players in our daily diet right now:

Sweet potatoes
Black beans
Avocados
Bananas
Mangoes
Blueberries
Strawberries
Raspberries
Broccoli
Peas
Carrots
Zucchini
Watermelon
Almonds
Coconuts

I'm staying away from rice and flour until age one. She's tried yogurt, but it made her break out, so she's off that until she turns one. Any ideas? Snack ideas are especially welcome.

Thanks so much!

It's so hard to remember what Sophie was doing at that stage and we're not quite there with Mabel. If you're looking for snacks that are easy to keep in your bag for when you're on the go, Sophie always like freeze-dried mangoes from Trader Joe's. I know you don't have a TJ's there, but maybe they have something like it at another store? She liked other freeze-dried fruits, but the mangoes didn't stain and the stick shape was easy for her to hold and suck or gnaw on. I'll try to think of other ideas!
