Dd (age 1) is going through a phase where she will only eat individual baked beans, peas, sweetcorn, blueberries, raisins. She refuses all spoon-feeding. I have tried cutting other food to the same size as a baked bean which sometimes works but more often not.

Is there any food I haven't though of which is along similar lines?

kidney beans
basics mixed veg is all mini,might work

(good luck, my dd did this too! Is just a small phase... keep offering everything else alongside)

Thanks adair! Have got tins of both those things. And basic mixed veg also worth a shot.

Glad to know it's a brief phase!

in sainsbury's you can get tiny tiny pasta shells, about the size of a baked bean.

Thanks all! Have seen the tiny pasta in boots. Gnocchi - v good idea.

Yes jelly beans/smarties would be perfect for madam!
