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.

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

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.

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...
