Oh we didn't take anything. A had a fine old time with the canapes, they are finger food aren't they haha. I guess that made it easy as we just handed him food and he ate it. He did spit a bit out which we just caught and binned. I'm sure in a buffet there'll be a fair amount of finger foods. Maybe take some of the food Frankie suggested and keep it in your bag as a backup but I bet it'll be fine!

I swear by those plastic bibs that catch the food that misses their mouth too.

Damn we have those, should have taken one!
We take cheese spread sandwiches for A after swimming (although he's a bit older). Find they stick together quite well, so not a lot of mess. And we ALWAYS use pelican bibs (I have a very messy eater!)

If we're out I just put some bits in a lunchbox, although at weddings we've been too shes just had whats on offer. The following are common lunch box items for Z: cheese sticks, slices of pepper/tomato/cucumber/avacado, rice cakes, cold meat, breadsticks, bread with spread on, slices of fruit.

I would take the usual things i have in the changing bag and maybe a sandwich in case the food is delayed, but i expect that there will be plenty he can eat. I like the coverall bibs for these types of occasion, the ones with the arms. You can put a pelican bib over the top if you wanted to.

He doesn't really like rice cakes or any of those organix crispy things. I was hoping he would because stuff like that is so much easier. He just sucks it a bit then waves his hands around with it stuck to his fingers until it flies off! Ill try breadsticks though, they might be better if its the rice texture he doesn't like?
For stuff like cucumber, pepper sticks would you take them in a cool bag? Just thinking about the amount of stuff we will be taking...
Not tried pelican bibs so will try them, thanks ladies :)

I dont bother to keep it cool, it wont be out of the fridge for long. Tesco do mini breadsticks, Z likes hers dipped in houmous, but that might be a bit messy for a wedding! Pelican bibs are great, we use one in addition to a long sleeve one and alot of what come out of her mouth just goes in there. Then you only have to worry about the stuff that gets thrown!

I would imagine that a wedding would have the food you want but I guess it's the timing of it. I would take a little box of snacks like cut up fruit (unless you're up to whole fruit which is easier to carry), cucumber & breadsticks. I was a bridesmaid at my sisters wedding & even though we'd had breakfast I was so busy getting ready that I didn't even think about my daughters lunch & had to make a stop en route to the church (annoyingly my hubby had taken the bag of fruit out of the car & into the hotel) & then of course my daughter didn't want to give up the apple my hubby bought her so she walked down the aisle as a flower girl whilst eating an apple!!
