    Default Finger food and snack ideas for my 9 month old please!

    My gorgeous DS is the definition of mr independent these days and would much prefer feeding himself than mum doing it for him

    Apart from the obvious snacks, I want to give him a healthy, creative variety of things he can hold himself.
    I am already giving him foods such as:

    Toasties
    Cheese sticks and crackers
    carrots
    zucchini
    apple
    pear
    stone fruits
    Roast potato and pumpkin chips
    Fish fingers
    Sultanas

    He does have other things that I feed him such as yogurts, cereals and custards, but he's really going through and experimental stage and I'd like to encourage him as much as I can.

    Any suggestions or ideas would be great. Even if you've got some lunch ideas (I tend to repeat what he likes cos I run out of ideas :/)

    Homemade chicken nuggets are a big hit with my DS. Google for a recipe using chicken mince. I sneak some grated zucchini in them too. they can be either lightly crumbed and baked, or just coated in some egg and flour then baked.

    Corn on a cob is also a favourite here. DS has been chewing on corn since he had 2 top and 2 bottom teeth. He loves it! I roll a cob in bake paper and microwave for 2 mins. Easy!

    We did BLW so all our food was finger food at that age!

    Rice cakes
    Rice cruskits with almond butter
    Egg pancakes/ frittata cut into strips
    Cucumber or capsucum sticks with homemade dips
    (guacamole, tzatiki, hummus)
    falafel balls
    Salmon nuggets
    Zucchini slice ( made in mini muffin tin)
    Spagetti with either meat sauce or ricotta and peas
    Watermelon or pineapple wedges
    Olives ( cut into 1/4)
    Steamed beans/asparagus/brocolli with a little flax seed or olive oil
