By the age of nine months, many babies want to start feeding themselves but can't yet handle a spoon. This is when finger foods come into their own. They're also great to offer to toddlers and pre-school children who are prone to go into 'meltdown' just before dinner. This essential collection of tempting, nutritious finger foods features 100 quick and easy recipes for both babies and older children, including fresh fruit ice lollies- perfect for soothing sore gums - goujons of fish and raw vegetables with dip, as well as drumsticks, wraps and brownies, that will not only introduce your baby to new textures and tastes but will make for a healthy, happy and contented child.
