Dairy and soy free finger food

DD is 10mo and milk and soy free. She is doing great at weaning and has enjoyed everything she's tried so far
However, she's going through a stubborn phase and is refusing to be fed by anyone other than herself! I am struggling for suitable finger food ideas and would love to hear what others give.

DD loves pancakes, but use oat milk to make them. Breadsticks or rice cakes are also popular.

When DD went through this phase I'd give her sweet corn or chopped olives to distract her, and I could manage to shovel in some food without her noticing too much.

It might also be worth giving her a spoon or two to hold, again as distraction while you feed her.

May be just telling you things you've already tried, but didn't want this to lurk unanswered!

She had breadsticks and rice cakes etc as snacks, but I'm trying to come up with more filling meal type foods.

I used to be able to use the tricks you mentioned to get a reasonable amount into her, but she's wise to them now and it's pretty much impossible.

Frustratingly though she is hungry, she just won't let me help. Like many babies she's not keen on the prescription milk and is getting frustrated as she is hungrier when she only has finger foods rather than being spoon fed as well.

Courgette fritters can be sliced up and make nice finger foods. We use oat milk all the time.
Omlette cut up
Fish in bite size chunks. I naughtily used to light fry it to make it tastier. Mine love salmon
Mashed potato is lovely to squeeze in little hands and lick!
Scrambled eggs
Mini yorkshire puds cut into little bite size bits or left whole if a confident chewer.

Have a google - there's loads.
Just take your own main meals and adapt it.
