Re: Alternative to. Puffs
As PP said, freeze dried fruit and veggies are a great snack! We buy the Market Pantry brand from Target. Some have added sugar, but a lot don't, so just check the labels. The bananas are probably DS's favorite, but he also really likes the apples, peas and corn.
Target also sells the Happy Baby puffs, which were DS's first solid food after the purees.
