I really wasn't ready for the spoon-feeding phase to be over. It's MUCH more difficult to come up with ideas for finger foods that are high in fibre (the constipation monster is always lurking in the shadows, ready to rear its ugly head should I neglect to balance her fibre and water consumption perfectly), full of vitamins and not sugar, and do not present a choking hazard.
And then there's the mess. I'm going to have to silence my inner control freak and just go with it, much as it pains me to do so. She loves smearing her food all over the highchair, her arms and legs, her clothes, and her hair. And if I get close enough, she will smear it all over me too.
Any suggestions for early finger foods? Bonus points for ideas that relatively mess-free!
