Babies: 9 - 12 Months

What finger foods are your feeding your LO?

DS is almost 9 months.  He is over being spoon fed and wants to do it himself and he's pretty good at it.  I'm just looking for more go to soft foods.  What does your LO eat often?

    DS loves to feed himself steamed veggies. His favorite are steamed carrots and peas. He also eats a lot of fruit pieces. He loves watermelon and bananas. Other things we give him are small pieces of cheese and a piece of toast torn into small pieces. We're still experimenting to see what he'll eat, but the items I listed are in regular rotation.

    We feed DS most of what we eat.  I think he could eat his weight in Cheerios daily if I let him.  He LOVES to feed himself and those has really improved his fine motor.  Also, the pediatrician said they're fortified with lots of good stuff, so they're not a bad choice.

    He also gets:

    pretty much any kind of fruit, diced into small pieces

    steamed or roasted veggies

    tiny bits of toast covered with hummus

    pasta, ditalini is an especially good shape (the tiny tubes you see in minestrone)

    beans

    tiny bites of meat, we've done chicken, turkey and pork so far

    We're just starting dairy but pieces of shredded cheese or cottage cheese curds

    Yesterday his babysitter said he chowed down a gluten free waffle

    We have the same items in rotation as well.  I also give her what we are eating that night if it's not too unhealthy.  She's had pizza, spaghetti, mac n cheese (the homemade kind), taco meat, mashed potatoes, etc.

    She is getting to the point that I can't fool her with what we aren't eating.  Just last night we had tacos and I didn't want her to have the spicy meat so I set out some for her before adding the spice mixture.  She wouldn't have anything to do with it on her tray.  But she was fussing and wouldn't stop until I hand fed her some of my meat on my plate.  I'm going to have to start feeding her more of what we eat.

  • Our LO eats primarily what we eat as long as its soft enough for him. He usually gets a cut up banana and whole grain cheerios for breakfast and then eats what we have the rest of the day. For snacks I give him whole grain Gerber Puffs, cheerios, or shredded cheddar cheese.
  • My DD loves blueberries. We've also given her steamed veggies and tiny cubes of cheese. I've also scrambled up an egg yoke with a little cheese, and she did not like the egg!

  • Mainly steamed peas, carrots, grilled cheese broken up into pieces, tuna fish sandwiches broken up, puffs and blueberries.

  • DS loves finger food and started hating being spoon fed at about 9 months. The first foods we tried were banana, avocado, and bread. He'll eat everything put in front of him. We've tried pancakes, eggs, chicken, turkey, ham, steamed sweet potatoes and carrots, pizza, pasta, and tomato sauce. He loves feeding himself.
