My daughter is nearly 9 months old and I tend to give her finger foods at meal times while I get the real food in:
she has banana, bread and butter, bread and light garlic philadelphia, bread and banana,
rice cakes, cheese, courgette, broccolli, tried muffins today with the butter soaked in but she didnt like them
I am after ideas Of what else to give her.
I do give her apple as well but she hasnt taken to it. And melon pieces, she struggles to keep a hold of them although she does like it
It must be getting boring for her as every time she has the same things on her tray!
So what else can I give her. Please give me some ideas It's not for her real food - it's just for her to snack on with her proper meal. It helps distact her and keeps her occupied otherwise she starts sinking in her chair bored.
All I can say is keep offering. She will come to learn how to hold fruits so it doesnt slip.
Pears are a good one... peel the skin off and use an apple corer to remove the core so you are left with the skinless pear with a hole through it, she will be able to use the hole to grasp and then nibble/suck/lick the pear. Kirsty can eat a whole pear this way You could try apple rings: peel & core an apple the slice it so they look like pineapple rings if you understand me! I never liked giving apple though as Kirsty choked one a piece. I tend to slightly cook them first then give them to her so it's soft.
