What would be some good finger foods to give my 11 month old?

My daughter will be 1 in 2 weeks. She only has two bottom teeth but I feed her just about anything. Most of her meals are the same thing my husband and I eat (I don't salt and pepper food when I cook). She also eats a lot of fruits and steamed veggies. Avocados, pears, peaches, grapes, mangoes, papaya, bananas, carrots, various winter and summer squash (ie, yellow, butternut, acorn, zucchini), sweet/regular potatoes, broccoli, green beans. I also give her different cheeses, favorites being brie and sharp cheddar. When I first started giving her finger foods she had a hard time 'chewing' meats so I gave her tofu and beans for protein but now she does great with fish and chicken. I steam some of the veggies in advance, dice them up and put them on a baking sheet in the freezer. Once they're frozen I transfer them to snack bags and put them in a larger freezer bag. This way there is always some veggies prepared. I've done this as well with fruit. Hope this helps some.

Finger foods i use to feed my kids when they were that age were things like ... cereal, canned or fresh fruit cut up (they softer ones if they dont have many teeth). bananas, grilled cheese sandwhiches, cut up cheese cubes, pancakes and waffles cut up, green beans (no salt), pasta plain (bow tie pasta easier for pickup) or witha lite tomato sauce.

whole wheat pancakes diced into small pieces, soon you can dice a hard boiled egg, cooked/diced zucchini, grapes that are cut up very small, cous cous, brown rice, tiny, wll-cooked broccoli florets, teething biscuits, small bites of whole-grain muffin. Hope this helps!

I used to give my children veggi fingers. They are easy to make, its pretty much mashed potato and mashed veggies baked into fingers. Very messy, but my kids loved them.
