Default quick meals for a one year old?

Tips for quick easy meals for one year olds (eg on working days etc)

So far - fish fingers (with veg and beans)
- pancakes and cheese (then fruit)

All suggestions welcome.

Try and batch cook things like burgers/fishcakes/chick nuggets etc then freeze them. Then in the morning just take out what you need to defrost and by tea time all you have to do is cook it!

I work fulltime and hubby is away alot so dinner time is MAD MAD MAD inour house Leah likes her dinner AS SOON AS SHE COMES IN! So I have to be prepared. I tend to batch cook things like:
Mince & onion
Stew
Casaroles
Lasagne
Spag bol
Chili
Etc so that I can then freeze lift out the night before and then ding in micro when we come in just need to pop on some pasta or either I boil the spuds the night before and mash and they can be dinged as well.
My oven is great too, I can pre set it so if we want something like chicken nuggets and wedges, sausages or for example we are having salmon tomorrow night, i will just lift out of fridge tomorrow before I go to work set oven and pop it in.Its ready for when we come in!
NO bother!!!

Also try looking at some of the crock pot (slow cooker) recipes. You can prepare the night before and put it up before you go to work and then presto ready dinner!

think most of them covered above.

I batch cook bolognese sauce mainly for emergencies, then defrost and reheat in microwave and serve with fresh cooked dry pasta or rice.

Sandwiches (made with bread/ rolls/ baps/ bagels/ ciabatta/ focaccia/ flour tortilla wrap etc.) are quick and easy. you can prepare a filling the night before and leave in the fridge if that helps - tuna and sweetcorn mayo/ grated cheese/ dairylea/ or go for something easy and spreadable like marmite - or something more exotic like cream cheese and smoked salmon!

Tilly can be a fussy miss so cut them into fun shapes with pastry cutters and this is working so far as she thinks they're funny!

for cupboard standby, you can now buy tinned spaghetti in a hidden veg sauce as well as the regular tomato one. and beans have been mentioned before of course. Yummy with buttered toast and grated cheese on top.

and as well as fish fingers/ chicken nuggests - you can also sneak veggie nuggets in too.
