    Anything can be finger food if you don't mind mess (barring soup and yoghurt).

    Mix porridge with less milk so it's thicker [and easier to grab] same with cereal.

    All fruit, veg and salad can be cut into hand held sizes, same with meat. Pasta is good - penne or even spaghetti. Bee even eats cous cous and rice with her hands.

    Everything is possible as finger food..... I know as I have a spoon refuser!!

    My little boy loves to self feed to. I think they just get to a stage where they want to experiment with food themselves. He has cheerios with a little milk so he can pick them up, weetabix the same way. Pasta salad? Fish fingers? Fruit covered in yoghurt? I just give him whatever I have but cut into chunks he can hold. It's a messy way of feeding but much more fun. Embrace and enjoy it, it's a good thing!

    My lg done exactly this and I give her pretty much anything. Home made chips, omelette fingers, all sorts of fruit chopped/cucumber, cold/cooked meats, rice, pasta, dry cereal, humous and pitta.

    My daughter is the same and eats just about anything herself, she even manages soup with her hands although messy. Have th tried giving him the spoon to feed himself also? My LG eats her mashed veggies herself these days.

    But yeah as above anything goes

    Beans, peas and mince are my lo's fave. She loves chilli con carne and last night ate a load of paella Inc prawns, I was so chuffed as i love prawns

    Oh and haggis went down really well here
