Finger Food Ideas
- September 28, 2011 at 11:04 am #23212
My 9-month old son can’t get enough of finger foods, but I’m struggling with fresh idea. We’ve tried tofu, fruit, waffles, muffins and Cheerios. Any other suggestions out there?October 6, 2011 at 10:26 am #23214
My son loved (and still does love) small cubes of cheese. It’s easy to slice into child-friendly sizes and is a great source of calcium, too. I started him off with very mild, soft cheeses. As he gets older, maybe we’ll expand his taste to the more fancy varieties!October 6, 2011 at 5:54 pm #23215
Banana, Avocado, blueberries, watermelon, gerber puffs, yobaby yogurt (add cherrios to the yogurt for a fun/messy experience), cheese, grilled cheese, overcooked veggies like broccoli and carrots, mango, hummus (hey, he may like to eat it with his fingers!)
You mentioned ditalini in your blog – have you tried it with sauce and parmesan to introduce some other flavors?
At this age, I also used low sodium minestrone soup. I could pull out the veggies/potatoes and noodles and they were of the perfect softness.June 25, 2013 at 8:30 am #23216
I found that frozen peas, carrots, and corn (cooked, of course) are a fun finger food. They’re a colorful, fun challenge for fine motor skills, and nutritious as well. My son also likes grape tomatoes cut into halves or quarters, though those tend to be messier.
