    Default Winter veg finger food

    I'd like to increase the variety of vegetables we feed DS. We tend to eat seasonal veg, so I'm a bit stuck for what else to do.

    He has:
    roast finger/wedges of potato (sweet and white), carrots, parsnip, celariac
    steamed florets of broccoli and cauliflower

    That's about it.

    What else can I give him that's seasonal?

    Not beetroot - too messy! Can't get squash anymore.

    We offer asparagus spears (the top mainly, the bottom can be too stringy). I know you said that beets are messy, but what we do is strip DS down to just a dipe and let him go at it. It can be messy but it can be cleaned up

    It sounds like he's getting a good wide range already. I can't really think of anything else.

    How about rutabega? Jicama? The second is sweet and has a lot of water in it but a firmer texture than watermelon. It is considered a root veggie though.
    Truth never dies but it leads a wretched life.

    Had to google those for the "English" translation! Swede and turnip. I'm not too keen on swede and I can't get hold of turnips!

    Must get sme frozen spinach - good idea. And I'll try peas too.

    Can you get "winter squash" - butternut, acorn, etc?
