chopped up pieces of fruit/veg (with some yoghurt to dip)
scones and muffins (use variety of fruit or veg- eg pumpkin scones)
fruit dipped in chocolate
use bread to make a mini pizza (veg and cheese) then cut into strips (ideas- pineapple, mushroom, tomato, onion)

It is so easy to make.
4 individual pkgs. of knox gelatine
3 sm. boxes any flavor Jello ( I use sugar free, lot healthier)
4 cups boiling water
You would pour the 4 cups of boiling water into a bowl, stir until desolved. Then add the 4 pkgs. knox gelatin stir until desolved, then add the 3 sm. boxes of jello. Stir until desolved. Then after it cools some pour into a small cake size dish I use a tupperware container. You then place in the refrigerator for at least a half hour or longer depending on temp of frig. it should be firm but giggly. Then cut into squares.My grandsons love them. It is so much fun to make them at Christmas time we use green and red and serve the squares together in a festive dish. There are so many ways that you can use them how about using a cookie sheet to pour it into then you can use cookie cutters shape them. Fun! Enjoy

My 14 month old son eats Cheerios, Goldfish Crackers (all kinds), oyster crackers, Gerber Puffs, Gerber cereal bars, cheese crumbles by Kraft, and cheese slices, canned green beans, bacon in pieces, macaroni and cheese noodles, hotdog cut up in to very small pieces, Dole fruit cups, chicken nuggets cut up, Perdue chicken strips, bologna cut up, ground beef, banana. Hope this helps a little! And though some may not agree, I too occasionally give him chips. He loves them :)

when my girls were that age there wasn't really anything I didn't give them. Here is some of what I gave them:
burgers cut up into bite size pieces, squash and/or zucchini cooked until very tender, pb&j (if there isn't an allergy to pb), baked chicken cut into tiny pieces (tenders that are homemade), hot dogs (took the skin off and cut it into quarters), cut green beans (cooked until very tender), corn (cooked until tender), Kix is a great cereal if they don't like Cheerios, french fries broken into bite size pieces, tiny meat balls, roasted potatoes (peel, dice, bake potatoes).
Hope these help.

Cheerios are the classic...bananas cut up and avacado too (a little slippery but very nutritious). small pieces of grapes and cheese. some moms have suggested frozen vegetables (like peas) but mine were never fans. pieces of bread...and for that matter, if he has teeth, just about anything cut up into small pieces (chicken nuggets, sliced turkey, etc.). good luck!

Are these for snacks or for meals? cheese cubes, frozen peas (big winner), diced tofu, scrambled egg.
At 14 months, my lo really enjoyed learning to use utensils. I would give her cereal with a bit of milk and she would eat it with a spoon. I also let her eat minigo on her own, but it can get a little messy!

Cooked carrots in fingers (for carrieng around with you), toast with smooth peanut butter (just a little and cut into fingers) and Organix range wich did cheesy puffs and tomato flavoured puffed wheat. Soft and grated cheeses and fruit cut into easy to hold peices. Plums,oranges,melon and pear where the best as they where soft. Boiled apples and bananas also went down well. Hope this helps. Good luck :)

When both my kids were 14 months I gave them lots of stuff! Shredded cheese was (and still is!) their favorite. I would make hard boiled eggs for them & dice it. The Gerber Cheese Puff's & Star Puff's, peas, diced cooked carrots, The Gerber Cereal bars. I hope those suggestions help! :)
