Even though my kids are now past the weaning stage I remember all too well the eternal search for some good finger food ideas for baby led weaning, actually in fact for any baby led weaning ideas – of course the idea behind baby led weaning is that your baby can eat whatever you eat but as someone who tends to eat a cheese and ham sandwich pretty much every day I know I needed some inspiration too to get me out of a rut!

I loved doing Baby Led Weaning with my kids. With my first born I tried doing purees too but frankly by the time I reached my second child being weaned I had neither the time to make loads of purees nor the cash to buy lots of ready made ones. Also, my favourite bit about baby led weaning? I got to eat at the same time as my kids and actually use both hands to eat! Don’t knock it, I’m sure most of us mums are fully used to luke warm dinners eaten with one hand by the time our child reaches six months old. At the beginning of this year I shared 40+ things my daughter could eat before she had teeth and more recently I shared 10 baby led weaning dinner ideas that my whole family loved. As they’ve both been so popular I put my head together with one of my friends and together we came up with 10 more baby lead dinner ideas that we loved as much as our kids did!
