DS is 9 months old and is a good eater but I am struggling with what food I can now give as 'finger food'
He'll happily chomp toast, strawberries, ripe pear, banana, biscotti, breadstick etc but when it is ok to give raw apple or a blueberry? Am I asking for trouble as raw apple doesn't exactly dissolve in the mouth?! Also what about bread would that be ok? He has 5 teeth if that helps!!
I would grate the apple as it can be a choking hazard. The blueberries are fine, if she can pick them up she can eat them. Melon fine too, I used to cut it up with a crinkles chip cutter for extra grip because it can be so slippy.
these are good things, i can't quite remember the 'guidelines' but i remember giving dc little baby boiled spuds, butter beans and broad beans (broad beans popped out of their skin) cauliflower and brocolli florets as well as garden peas etc (just if you're stuck for ideas, not teaching you to suck eggs!)
