Baby Finger Foods


I have a baby who prefers to feed herself and this means finger food time.   The typical age to start finger foods is 8 to 9 months old.  The best place to have finger foods is in the high chair, which prevents choking, rather than a car seat.  Resist the urge to offer your baby high sweet items such as cookies, try and stick to fruits and veggies.


Here are some suggestions for baby finger food and what to make:


Steamed broccoli – cut into small pieces

Steamed or baked yam – peel and cut into cubes

Cooked Peas

Grapes – Always cut in half

Steamed Cauliflower

Small bites of chicken or turkey

Rice crackers

Rice cereal

Fruit cut into small pieces only if the fruit is soft like kiwi or mango

Baked apples cut up

Cooked carrots cut up


Allegra loves eating with her hands and favors broccoli, blueberries and rice!!
