Finger food ideas from 6 months!

From 6 months, little ones are learning to grab foods and pop them into their mouth, developing hand-eye coordination.

Finger foods must be super-soft and mush down easily to start, so they melt in your baby's mouth. They should also be long enough to peep out of a little fist and chunky enough to munch on safely.

Why not try these yummy finger foods:

  • Cooked veggie sticks like carrot + parsnip
    (well-cooked, super soft and cut to the size + shape of an adult index finger)
  • Cooked broccoli trees or cauli florets (halved or quartered lengthways)
  • Banana or mango fingers
  • Ella’s Kitchen Melty Puffs
