cheerios. the first finger food for babies.
gerber makes something called puffs... - alot like a cheerio.. but more expensive.. (they are a bit softer)
gerber makes "biter biscuits" hard cookies good for teething.
and zwieback toast.. (my kids love the biter biscuits and hate the toast..)
Kraft makes cheese crumbles.. - right next to the shredded cheese packs.. small pieces of cheese easy to pick up..
Peas are good- then canned green beans (cut them first) canned carrots...
canned peaches and pears...(peaches are slippery.. try pears first..
gerber makes little jars of diced fruit and veggies..
in the beginning they rarely get the food in their mouth.. so I give the finger food after the baby has eaten their jarred food...or I put some on the tray while I am cooking dinner and the baby is entertained while I am busy.
Babies naturally want to put things in their mouth so if you put in on the tray they will try it..
