Easy Baby Finger Foods

My little is inbetween stages right now.  He’s moved on past purees but isn’t quite to the point where we’re feeding him what we are eating.  As you know, I am a busy mom of three kids so on top of the great fine motor skills he’s developing, it is so helpful when he can feed himself!

I have to admit, I’ve run short on inspiration now and then to mix up his meals and keep giving him a variety of nutritious foods.  So here is a list of super fast and easy baby finger food ideas for your inspiration…

  1. Cooked Pasta
  2. Cubed Colby Cheese
  3. Cantaloupe
  4. Bananas
  5. String Cheese
  6. Red Grapes (be sure to cut them in quarters!)
  7. Rice
  8. Cubed Chicken Breast
  9. Cooked Veggie Pasta
  10. Strawberries
  11. Shredded Chicken
  12. Apples, peeled and cut
  13. Green Grapes (be sure to cut in quarters!)
  14. Blueberries
  15. Corn off the Cob
  16. Peaches, peeled and sliced
  17. Mangos

I usually serve them to him in this divided plate.  It has a suction cup for a bottom so I can stick it to his tray so it doesn’t go flying!  It has a removable lip on it to assist them as they are learning to scoop things up.


I know there are a ton more options but sometimes you just need to look at a picture or list for inspiration, right?

What foods are on your baby’s menu right now?
