I'll have pretty limited time once I go back to work and I'm looking for ideas for my son for self-feeding at daycare. He's 13 months, and they think he should be mostly self feeding at this point, although I still give him a veggie puree and yogurt daily that I feed to him at home.
He doesn't like cheerios much... he ate puffs fine when we were on that stage, though. He LOVES those "tinyfruits" but they're $3 a bag, so that's lame. He loves eggs, so I can cut up a boiled egg for him everyday (is that bad for him?). He's somewhat fussy. LOVES zucchini, but it's not exactly a "nutritionally dense" food, which is what I'm looking for. He ate beans yesterday when I was out for mexican and seemed to love them. We're not vegetarian, but we don't eat much meat as you can probably infer from above. I bought tofu (firm) yesterday and I'm not sure what to do with it for him, though.
Any other ideas for easy to prepare, nutritionally dense finger food that can translate well to being packed for daycare? I've made nearly all his food so far and I'd like it to stay that way even after I go back to work...

Dear God, Since I couldn't hold my little one in my lap and tell him about you, could you hold him in your lap and tell him about me?
