    I make my basmati rice a little stickier for E and she picks it up and shoves it right in.

    Cottage cheese, especially the large curd kind. Easier to pick up. HUGE hit.
    Shredded cheese
    Green beans as they are
    Pasta
    Broccoli
    Peas
    Beans
    Diced or thin strips of soft meats
    Peaches/Pears/Plums
    Bananas split into 3 (just press on the ends and they break into natural sections)
    Cereal puffs
    Blueberries cut in half
    Grapes cut in half
    Raspberries
    Toast strips, sometimes buttered, sometimes with cream cheese spread on
    Melon chunks
    Quesadillas
    Enchiladas cut into small pieces
    Cheese melted onto bread and cut into strips
    Cherries


    Those are what I can think of off the top of my head!

    Babies definitely don't need teeth to chew. Think about it, they don't chew with their front teeth anyway.

    BLS here as well

    any fruit or veggies should work (you can cook them or offer raw, depending on your comfort level). Grated cheese, shredded chicken/pork/beef/whatever.
