So, Zoe is really into finger foods and table foods. She has no teeth and eats very little solids on a daily basis. Any ideas on foods to give her that are nutritious and calorically dense? we feed her yogurt and she loves that. Otherwise I will give her some pasta spirals cut up, steamed cubed sweet potatoes or carrots, etc. I do not really want to give her food from our plates because it is seasoned and salted. oh she also eats my oatmeal

I have been thinking about beans for her, but she had such a sensitive tummy when she was younger (0-6months) with anything I ate that I am a bit hesitant. I may try some chickpeas though.

I suggest hummus. My 2 yr old son has always loved it although Zoe may have to dip something in it if you want to stay w/finger-food. I make my own since store brands always have weird things in them and they don't seem to taste as good. Sometimes, I put a bit of spinach in it to give it a green boost. Also, tahini in the hummus has a lot of calcium in it.
