    Default Finger Food Ideas

    What are some good finger foods for DS? He loves eating our food but sometimes it's just not the right meal for him.
    He's loving cucumber. I just don't know what is a good idea and still healthy.

    Thanks

    With cucumber, mine loved it cut into thick sticks and dipped into hommus or natural yoghurt.

    Chicken or beef strips.

    Lamb cutlets

    Pasta shapes.

    Cruskits or rice cakes with guacamole or hommus.

    Fish, just pan fried and flaked.

    How do you do your homemade chicken nuggets and fish fingers? I think he'd love them!

    Be careful what fish you use, as the same guidelines for pregnant women regarding mercury levels apply to kids under 6.

    Corn on the cob (I use those little frozen ones)
    Steamed veges-carrot, zucchini, broccoli, green beans etc. microwave steamers are soooo easy.
    My dd has always loved peas and picking them up off the plate helped her coordination
    Mini quiches, meatballs. Soft boiled eggs for 'dippings' with toast
    Cheese sticks

    What fish is best? I'm not a big fish eater myself.

    Is there anything I should really avoid for him? There's no allergies to food in our families. (If that matters?)

    Hi OP, any 'whole' foods as close to their original state as possible, such as grilled or steamed fish, chicken (marinated in coriander, garlic and lemon juice, then grilled in very thin strips), veges, cut into fingers. Greek yoghurt with a sprinkle of cumin always works well as a side dish with anything, or humous. For food on the go, try felafal (I dont make my own). Cheese worms (grated cheese), also, you can put anything into a meatball (eg: grated apple, spices, etc). Or homemade potato chips, thick cut, par boiled, then cooked in the oven.I try to avoid processed goods that contain gluten when I can...
