Weaning | Finger Foods

We are well into our weaning journey now and it's safe to say we have a foodie on our hands! I don't think there is a food Aria has tried that she hasn't like... what a little piglet!
One of the things we introduced a few weeks ago was finger foods. We are currently doing a combination of baby led weaning (BLW) and spoon feeding Aria. There are days where she can be extremely fussy and will only feed herself (how independent!), so I thought I'd share with you a few finger foods we have tried and tested, as I have had quite a few people ask what kinds of things we give Aria!

  • Toast (French Toast is a huge hit with Aria!)
  • Apple or Pear, peeled and partly cooked.
  • Orange segments.
  • Banana (a good idea to get a mesh feeder, as this is a pretty messy one!)
  • Dried fruits. Apricots and Prunes are Aria's favourites, and prunes really help if they have constipation.
  • Cucumber.
  • Carrot, partly cooked so soft enough to chew.
  • Finger sandwiches.
These are just a few of the things Aria loves, but we've also tried bits from the baby aisle like Organix Rice Cakes, Ella's Kitchen Puffs and Heinz Biscoti. These are great on-the-go snack, and offer new textures for her to try.

We've also tried dipping carrot sticks or toast in hummus, recommended by Bella at Along Came Jay! which is a new favourite of Aria's. It's a lovely little snack we can share together, and so easy to make.


What finger foods does your little one love? Leave me a comment below, I love hearing new ideas for things to give Aria!
