Toddlers: Ideas for healthy finger foods
My nine-and-a-half-month-old daughter is now eating table foods, such as Cheerios, small bits of banana, crackers, small bits of precooked ham, cheese, graham crackers and sometimes bits of fruit. She often refuses veggies, so I give them to her via baby foods. Can you offer ideas for healthy finger foods to try?Question:
Your daughter has a good start on a healthy, varied diet.
There are some wonderful finger food meats that you can offer your daughter. Make some mini meat or chicken balls by using very well ground up meat, adding bread crumbs if you like, and forming into little balls that she can pick up herself. To make sure they are moist, try cooking the meatballs in broth instead of baking them in the oven.
