Dislike of Finger Food - help!

I have a 10 month old baby boy and despite placing a small amount of finger food on his high chair everyday he shows no interest in putting it in his mouth. He tends to play with it and fling it over the side as if it is a toy or game. He is a very good eater and will happily eat a mountain of lumpy food but it has to be off the spoon.

He is currently settling into nursery and they have said that I must try and encourage him more but I am drawing a blank.

Has anyone and the same problem or got any suggestions?

What have you tried giving him? Anything with a strong smell he might recognise?

Or have you tried breaking off a small piece and putting it into his mouth, so that he sees that this is food?
