Hi i am hoping to get some advice please on what finger foods i can start my 9 month old bub on? He currently loves those rusk sticks but i think it's time to look into starting him on some new things.

Any help or ideas would be so greatly appreciated!

anything soft and easily chewable is ok. My boys were all eating baby cereal and fruit by the time they were 2weeks old. couple of them went home from the hospital and had a bowl of cereal that nite! they had big appetites and at the cost of formula I couldnt afford to be giving them an 8oz bottle every 2 hours! So by the time they were nine months old, they were eating french fries, hot dogs, chicken fingers/nuggets(cut small obviously) pizza, pretezel sticks(stay close by when letting him naw on this, great for teething as well)! there are many more but I would be here all day trying to list what my munchkins could eat then! Now they all eat like little birds! I dont know maybe it's the heat!!!!

Soft fruits, partly boiled veggies, cereal, toast, cold pasta, cheese, hard boiled eggs, diced meat..... cut it up small enough and they'll eat it! Happy eating, x

my son is 7 mos & he LOVES fruity cheerios. he also really enjoys the gerber puffs. he likes the meat sticks too. Have u tried those little mesh food holders? they get all the food & flavor without the choking. Nothing big gets thru the holes.

My girls loved green beans,pears,lima beans,bananas,cereals. THere is no limt as long as you cut it up small. They can even eat hot dog IF you tak off the skin. I would let them try anything.
