Snacks

I am looking for snack ideas. I was packing shortbread cookies, nilla wafers, or butter crackers. I was told these items were okay by the dietician. I've switched the sandwich meat to Oscars myers naturals. I just feel like all the items that I am told are okay for her isn't. She was never placed on a liquid only diet. Due to weight loss, a high calorie diet was recommended. She is currently tapering on prednisone and is able to drink 3 to 4 nutritional drinks a day.

My daughter is on the SCD diet, but to help her with calories I make smoothies with avocado and yogurt made from half and half. Peanut butter on apple slices. Cheese on whatever I can add it to. Crackers or muffins with cream cheese and so on.
It may be that you can fit in another bottle of formula or two to add the calories. You can bake with the formula, add it to smoothies or possibly move to higher calorie formula like Ensure Plus (although my daughter didn't like those as much).

We do crackers with cheese, muffins (which freeze well - I used to just make a batch over the weekend and give her one for school every day), graham crackers, string cheese etc.

Is there a brand that you can recommend or do you have your own recipe for the muffins?

We make muffins. I use this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/220651/...tmeal-muffins/

But I do adapt it a little bit -- I use more white flour and less oatmeal, since my daughter does not do well with fiber. We also add raisins and cinnamon and vanilla extract. She loves them and they make a good snack.

A is on a low fat/high protein diet, so what's okay for her may not be okay for your daughter. But here's what she likes to snack on: dry cereal, pretzels, fruit, turkey jerky, plain popcorn, low fat cheese, and pasta salad made with coconut oil.

Just as a side note, I was suggesting adding polymeric formula to baking strictly for extra calories in addition to the formula the child is already consuming.
