    Default Finger foods....

    Any ideas for healthy finger foods my 9 month old can self feed? We are avoiding dairy and wheat for now...
    We currently do
    Brown rice
    Kiwi, peaches, pears,
    Carrots, peas, green beans
    chicken
    rice pasta
    grapes (peeled and cut smaller than a pea)
    Organic Oat Toasties
    Rice crispies cereal
    That is all I can think of at the moment....

    egg yolk
    sweet potato...

    I see you give kiwi... I thought it was 'forbidden' (IYKWIM), but maybe I'm wrong? I actually can't think of where I read/hear it, I just had it in my mind...
