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…
- Cooked Pasta
- Cubed Colby Cheese
- String Cheese
- Red Grapes (be sure to cut them in quarters!)
- Cubed Chicken Breast
- Cooked Veggie Pasta
- Shredded Chicken
- Apples, peeled and cut
- Green Grapes (be sure to cut in quarters!)
- Corn off the Cob
- Peaches, peeled and sliced
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.
What foods are on your baby’s menu right now?
