Few days back I had mentioned about giving you’ll Finger Food ideas for your little eaters. So here’s the first one. Finger foods are introduced to babies when they start sitting upright, unassisted and use their pincer grasp to hold food. Finger Foods, not only help in the fine motor development but also engage them in fun experiments with food. It is important to cut food into small pieces so that they can easily hold it and can mash it with their gums without getting choked. The following is one of the favorite snacks of my daughter.
“Kiwi” is also known as the Chinese gooseberry. It is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and folate as well. Kiwi is not a high allergy risk, however, it is acidic in nature. The acidity of the fruit may prompt mouth rashes and possibly rashes on the bottom. So I introduced my daughter to Kiwi after she was 1-year-old. Kiwi is a very good source of dietary fiber and is loaded with antioxidants.
Cheese Stick is a very popular snack among children and parents as well. It is the good source of calcium, potassium, and vitamin A. It can be one of the servings of daily required dairy. Since children at this age need essential fats for their growing bodies, it is good to use cheese made from organic whole milk. Here I have used mozzarella cheese stick, but cheddar is good as well. These are easily available in Organic supermarkets and grocery stores.
Talk to your baby’s Pediatrician before starting any new food.
