my daughter loved beans.. black beans especially. you can hide more veggies in there too like little pieces of tomatoes which are really good for you and/or peas. also spiral tri color noodles she would eat like crazy and turkey from the deli. low sodium lunch meat was a life saver because my daughter was soo picky at that age.

feed him what you eat, things like shepherds pie, if he wants finger food try toast, chips, fish fingers, bananas, strawberries
I actually just found out today that you should hold off on strwberries until they're over a year. Not sure why, I've still been meaning to look into it. If anyone knows? please respond. Just an FYI. :)

Anything mushy you can cut up! And whole grain cereals. Beechnut actually makes little cereal pieces that are coated in fruit flavored granola. I personally consider them junk food (like not a meal) but when my son was wanting and learning to feed himself, I would feed him his regular food and give him finger foods at the end of the meal to practice self feeding.
Fruits and well cooked veggies are always great. They say pasta is good too, but my son never appreciated it. Ummm cooked beans and lentils. Tofu pieces ( I would give him the ones out of my miso soup which he still loves!) Cheese is another good one. At 10 months, pretty much anything you eat and like that will mush easily when gummed and chewed they will usually like too!
It's such a fun stage and a great time to watch them experiment with texture and taste! Get ready to see more personality as they form oppinions about the food they eat!
Besy of luck!

My daughter loved vanilla wafers, kix, rice, bananas, mashed potatoes, green beans, pasta, pudding, and choclate Ice Cream. She eats alot of what we have for meals pretty much daily. Kayley also has two bottum teeth and is working on her second top tooth. Hope that helps...Any fruits she can pick up she will eat!

I gave my kids pretty much all of what the other mom's have mentioned.. my kids really loved mandarin oranges, pineapples, hotdogs, chicken nuggets, all cut up of course... string cheese is great... pretty much anything that we can eat they can eat, just make sure it is bite sized!! :)

I am in the same predicament now with my 10 month old daughter. She is a very picky eater. But all these ideas help! I need to be more creative.
I am very cautious about feeding her food- a little too cautious. I didn't even start baby food until 6 months.
She can't use a spoon yet by herself. is this normal of babies this age?

i like dawn feed my 8mth old son ( who has just cut his 2 bottom teeth) anything we eat but instead of cutting it small i cut it into lenths so he can hang on to it as use it all like a teething rusk, he loves eating with his hands

My daughter pretty much eats anything she can pick up. our doctor just suggested we stay away from hot dogs and peanut butter and anything highly allergic for a couple months. they say there throat is the size of your pinky. but we feed her most everything we eat in small form!

my son still likes cooked, plain pasta...Barilla makes mini pasta in different shapes like bow ties and penne that I think are perfect sized finger foods. He also liked the cinnamon toast waffles because they still tasted good plain (now he eats them with butter and syrup). The waffles come in four sections which are easy to eat. And of course, hot dogs cut up into small pieces. I like the Ballpark smoked white turkey franks.
Hmmm, I love the idea of using kitchen shears to cut stuff up. A knife can take a long time!
I do give my 10 month old a lot of what Winnie mentioned. Cut up chicken, bananas (a favorite), cherrios, cheese, bread, I even try cutting up spaghetti really small and he eats that too. Just about anything I give him he loves. Oh, yogurt is another one of his favorites.

maybe, chicken nuggets, or graham crackers, or small pieces of tortillas. When we started feeding table foods, we just used the kitchen shears to cut everything up into bit size pieces, and goes way faster than say a knife. Also applesauce, which helps teach the small motor skills. Let's see, pancakes, even cooked about the size of a silver dollar, so he can hold it, small pieces of bread, small banana chunks, cherrios, grilled cheese cut up...there is a few ideas. Did that help at all?
