Getting a handle on Finger Foods

Getting a handle on finger foods


By about nine months, your baby will have the motor skills to grasp small objects and get them to her mouth. It's time for finger foods! The foods on the list below are nutritious and easy to eat.

Fine finger-food dining
• Crackers

• Round toasted oat cereal

• Rice cakes

• Tiny cheese cubes

• Fruit, such as ripe bananas, apples, and pears in small pieces

• Cooked vegetables, such as halved peas and finely chopped squash, potatoes, and carrots

• Well-cooked pasta bits

• Cooked rice



Foods to avoid until those molars come in

Even though your baby is trying new foods, the primary source of nutrients for her first year still should be breastmilk or an iron-fortified formula


Some nutritious, seemingly safe finger foods actually are unsafe because they may pose a choking danger. If your baby has only her front teeth, she's capable of biting off a chunk of an uncooked carrot, but she can't actually chew it up, which means she could choke on it. Here's a list of foods to avoid until your baby has molars and can chew chunkier foods:

• Raw vegetables, such as carrot and celery sticks

• Grapes and berries

• Raisins

• Hot-dog or other meat chunks

• Any nuts, such as peanuts, almonds, and cashews

• Popcorn

• Hard candy, even suckers



Foods to avoid until after the first birthday

Your baby has so many food choices, and it's always a good idea to expand her horizons with new tastes and textures. But there are some foods Baby shouldn’t try until after her first birthday. In general, avoid sweet and salty foods. Your baby's taste for these will come soon enough. Also, avoid the following:

• Chocolate

• Citrus fruits and juices

• Corn

• Cow’s milk

• Egg whites

• Honey

• Legumes (beans)

• Nuts

• Peanut butter

• Seafood

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

― Helen Nearing, The Good Life
