Finger foods, where do I start?

No bashing, please!!
My son will be 10 months old Thursday. So far we've only given him Cheerios. I was scared about choking until I took a course last week.
Now, I want to get him back on track with eating, but I have no idea where to start! Please, anyone with ideas, let me know? I'm so completely lost!!

  • Cheerios are always a great start. Try some crackers, too. You can try little pieces of banana. Just nothing really too hard or cut very big.

  • My son started off with the gerber puffs. You can find them on the asile with formula and baby foods. My son still loves them! Also, you can get him some fruit and cut it up. They also have these lunchable juniors that are really great.

  • For my 10 mth old daughter, I am having MUCH luck with Gerber puffs, Crackers (broken into bite sized pieces), grapes (peeled and quartered), carrots, small pieces of soft boiled pasta, bits of broccoli, watermelon, any other soft fruit that I have on hand. She loves it when I break off a piece of toast that's long enough for her to hold - she takes little bites out of it. enjoy!
