I have a 10 months old son and I was wondering if anyone had some good ideas for snacks for him. He loves being able to feed himself and I do give him the graduates lil crunchies but i want to start giving him other things beside that. So any snack ideas for my 10 month old would be appreciated! Thanks=)

Cut up fruits or veggies in little chunks and give it to him! It's a snack, & it's healthy too! :o) But always peel it first, they have a hard time chewing up/swallowing the peeling. Good luck!

Thank you everyone, you all had some really good suggestions on snacks for my 10 month old!! I have tried a few of them,like cottage cheese but he wont touch the stuff and he eats yogurt every morning for breakfast cause he wont take anything else.lol...Now that he's get to the age where he can actually start eating some regular home made stuff I'll actually start cooking again!(My husbands deployed so I've kinda let it go,Ive seen no point cooking for one lol). Thank you again =)

My little boy is 16 months now but when he was 10 months old (he only had his two bottom teeth) I would give him dry toast cut in strips or squares, cheerios (the ones that are specially for babys) mum mums, and theres graduates candy. They are really soft and appropriate for babies that are starting to chew. He always like banana pieces too. Hope this helps your with snacks for your 10 month old! =)

CHEERIOS!!!!! My kids loved them! Also I gave mine small friut bites like the ones in trail mix. Cheese crackers are always a hit, I could go on and on but I'll spare you lol! Hoped this helped with snacks for your 10 month old:)

My son didn't really do much solid eating before he turned one but he loved/loves hummas. He used to dunk his fingers in the bowl and eat it off his fingers. TO be honest with you, I know its so good for him but even now when I smell it I gag. I used to love it also with pita bread but not anymore.....He also really loves refried beans (watch the gas issue), mashed bananas, cottage cheese, pasta (cook it really well so its mushy) and mashed potatoes. He never took to baby food so we just kind of skipped it all together.....

How about things like yogurt or apple sauce or some cottage cheese. If he doesn't like the cottage cheese try putting a little apple butter in it. Also if you make jello wigglers kids usually love them and their fun to make too. Those are some healthy solutions. Hope I helped you find snacks for your 10 month old.

Banana slices, fruit bits (bite size chunks), peas, carrots (cut and softened if possible, good for teething too) and crackers are good snacks for a 10 month old. You can always offer him what you would have for a snack. Just keep in mind the possible allergy stuff and you are good to go.

pretty much anything that can be putin small enough bites and is easy to chew... my son took himself off the bottle at 7 months then decided he no longer wanted baby food at 9 months so a 10 month old can eat just about anything. Just make sure its ok with your dr first. My son absolutely loved grahm crackers!
