    Default Finger foods

    DD is having a solid food strike atm! I am trying not to be concerned about it and think she might be bored of her food. Her weight has stayed the same the last 5 weeks and she's been fighting off a bad cold during this time too. So, I am trying to introduce more finger foods to keep things interesting and hopefully make her interested in participating in food again. She turned her nose up at toast - just played with it. She likes fruit, which we do once a day (usually peach or banana). I had thought of cheerios, but they are too full of sugar here in the UK. What are others giving as an introduction to finger foods? She does have a milk intolerance, so I feel a little limited by that. I also try to keep food colorful and visually/texturally interesting for her as she has some sight problems. Any suggestions?

    Baked sweet potato cut into squares, steamed zucchini or broccoli tops cut up small (these are favorites of my 10-mo-old). Whole grain waffles with a little butter are also a big hit with her.
