What finger foods could 8.5 month old eat?

My daughter got excited about being able to eat by herself cherios and rejects to be fed by spoon. What other finger foods would you suggest, that she wouldn't choke on at this age? She's got already 5 teeth.

  • bananas, peas, toast. is peanut butter too early? I forgot. As a treat I liked to give my daughter ice cream, yogurt or chocolate pudding.
