Talk to me about the meals your little ones are having. My boy now refuses to let me help him eat with a spoon or my hands. He wants to pick up everything himself. Many foods are too slippery and hard for him to pick up and I don't want his diet to be all puffs and cheerios. Looking for some ideas. He only has one little tooth bud so sticking to food that is soft.

So, we only have 2 teeth and she eats everything herself!! It's really, really messy. She does let us feed her yogurt (GoGurt has really low sugar, esp their "simple" yogurt at Costco) because it's fun from the gogurt. Occasionally she will eat off a big person spoon. At dinner she eats with her hands. She likes ripe peaches, in big enough pieces to pick up but not too big, all the meats, rice, pasta, mashed potato... yea lol

I also try and let C feed himself pieces of whatever we are eating. Everything is cut up really tiny, so he just tries to grab fistfuls and shoves food into his mouth. I also give him the baby food pouches, which he has been doing really well with. he can hold them himself and sucks out all the food.

Yeah we let her do it herself. She lets us feed her yogurt and some of the things she truly cannot pick up (mango/banana), but only if it's pieces of what we are eating. The other night she was taking handfuls of mashed potatoes off out plate and eating them. We always travel with bibs and we clean up the floor after she eats. (The dog does this at home).

Another one who eats whatever we eat. If she's hungry before dinner is ready, I'll give her whatever fruit we have cut in small pieces, steamed veggies, string cheese, pieces of ham, turkey, chicken. Seriously anything. She loves it all. Especially black beans, randomly.

Another eats what we eat. We still feed her baby food pouches, almost as a supplement...to make sure she's getting enough? The trick is to let her have something that she can grab herself and then she'll let us feed her with a spoon. Her favorite foods seem to be salmon and avocado

Ok so I HATE the mess of self feeding. But also cannot get food into those tiny mouths fast enough, so our go-to less messy self-feeding food list includes: black beans, chickpeas, peas (we like them frozen!), blueberries (until they start smashing them), deli meat, cheese, waffles, eggs, zucchini, mushrooms ... Messy but frequently self fed foods: mandarin oranges, bananas, avocados, PB on toast, lentils, sweet potatoes, watermelon... They self feed pouches and we're working on spoon use with mashed sweet potatoes.

Totally random to bring the thread back up but I thought of this yesterday and took a pic of her lunch and today's lunch. (We do more finger foods type of light lunch since I usually make myself eat a salad for lunch since I'm NOT a veggie person). For supper she eats what we eat, like last night was salmon with baked little potatoes and corn. Tonight will be chicken quesadillas that have shredded chichen, red and green peppers, cheese and mild salsa.
