Nigella's cheese stars from how to eat are great

DS1 used to love cheese straws, if you want some suggestions try the book 'finger foods for babies and toddlers' book by jennie maizels it has good ideas/recipes for finger foods including snacks, biscuits etc. It's about 8 or 9 quid to buy, so maybe check with local library first (in case you don't fancy the look of it, we use a lot of the recipes for main meals as well as snacks).

Although a friend of mine just used to halve the amount of sugar in normal recipes when she made biscuits to make them a bit more child friendly (she made lovely peanut butter biscuits, mmm....)

I've made these a couple of times these past weeks:

They are yummy and sweet, but no added sugar. I use sunflower oil instead of grapeseed oil and in my latest batch I added 1/3 cup of raisins. Next time I am going to try to add some peanutbutter.
