How do I get my 16 m/o to eat more solid "finger foods"?

Am putting this in weaning but we're past that really

16 month old determined not to eat anything "solid" -e g pieces of fruit, even turned down a chip which used to be a fave.
New teeth seem to be coming through but we must be almost at a full set yet preference is for mush rather than things that need to be chomped
any advice?

Will eat toast, bagel, biscuits, cheese and sandwiches and recently pasta bits but nothing that really constitutes a meal, e.g larger bits of broccoli or even a fish finger

TIA for any help

offer slop spread on toast / bagel etc

temporary solid avoidance might be due to teeth

keep offering
