Finger Foods for Babies, Toddlers

Finger Food for Babies, Toddlers and Kids -When your baby becomes a toddler, you notice many changes in her. One of them is refusal to sit in one place to eat meals. They are always on the go and they also want to assert their independence by controlling what they eat and how much they eat.

Finger foods work during this phase as they are easy for kids to pick up and eat themselves.

Parents are often at their wit’s end looking for food ideas for 1 year old and above and how to ensure children get wholesome nutrition. It is not as difficult as it appears and there are hundreds of options of finger foods. Here we present 75+ Finger food Ideas for Babies, Toddlers and Kids that you can offer to your children.

 Note: Even though, I have mentioned cut to pieces in most cases, please use your discretion in making pieces bite-size for your child to avoid risk of choking. 

Vegetables must be peeled, cooked soft and cut not small pieces.

Not all children are comfortable with everything. E.g. some children may eat chocos, for others it might be too hard, so again use your discretion.
