I've gotten a few emails lately asking if I've started C on any finger foods lately. If so, what have we done? The answer is a resounding yes! Typically, Carter eats two "finger-food" snack-type meals per day. Typically, I'll give him some sliced banana cubes with his yogurt at 11am and then later in the day he'll have a "snack" that consists of a couple of sweet potato sticks and some smashed blueberries. In the beginning, "finger foods" were introduced mainly so that Carter could work on fine motor skills but now that he's growing hungrier and more independent, I'll be introducing finger foods in greater quantity.
When looking for new ideas, I always turn to WholesomeBabyFood.com. I cannot say enough about this website. It's such an easy, indispensable resource when it comes to feeding! Here are a few of their brilliant suggestions when it comes to delicious finger foods for baby!
I'll admit, I'm pretty darn excited about dusting tofu in a little cheerio dust. Carter, however, may have other ideas!
Happy One-Day-Closer-To-Friday, Loyals!
