My son loves anything he can shovel in his mouth himself. I quarter cheese cubes, give him rinsed cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed black beans, chopped steamed veggies, hot dogs nuked and cut up into slices, then quarter each slice, pieces of pasta, chunks of bread..
For a little more effort:
take a slice of bread and roll it flat and spread a THIN smear of peanut butter or cream cheese or pimiento cheese or hummus or whatever spread you like on half of it. Fold it over, press and cut into tiny cubes.
I also like to do quesidillas. Just melt cheese between two tortillas in a small pan and cut into tiny pieces.
