Hi, I am just wondering if anyone has any recipes they are willing to share for finger food/snack ideas for my 10moth old. We have a cook book and have tried a lot of things in there but only a few have turned out right and they all include lots of ingredients which then ends up going to waste as we don't use what's left. I have tried looking online but again they include expensive and lots of ingredients. I'm wanting things like, oat/flapjack bars, muffins, etc things that don't take long to make, are easy and cheap. My LO loves fruit and has a really varied diet and will eat anything at all. Any ideas would be very welcome! Thanks

Slices of toasted crumpet.
Pizza cut into fingers.
I used to do similar to the frittata, but cook in a very small frying pan. A few drops of oil and fry leftover cubes of potato, a little onion and then chuck in small pieces of ham/pepper/chicken. Mix a couple of eggs with some chopped parsley and cook until set - might need a minute under the grill. Can be eaten hot or cold. My daughter liked dunking hers in ketchup.
Falafel - with hummus or tsatzicki to dip.
Recipe wise - salmon or trout fishcake sticks went down ok but were also quite 'faffy'.
Pitta bread is brilliant - you fill one for you, slice the most pockety ends off for young un & eat the rest yourself.
Since you may not sell as dog food anything unfit for human consumption, you may want to see how young un likes dog biscuits to gnaw on?
Personally I have a weakness for slices of dried mango. (Mango, sliced & left in the dehydrator overnight.) If you've never tried it, it maybe worth buying a packet & trying it whilst reassuring yourself that it's more MS to buy pre-dried mango *before* buying the dehydrator.
Mini omelette muffins are easy, just whisk eggs with a splash of milk. Add veg, lean meat, or cheese. Bake in muffin cases, gas mark 5 for twenty minutes.
Digestive biscuits, maybe with cream cheese, make a tasty treat.
We're huge pancake, scones, flapjack fans both sweet and savoury.
Veg sticks with dips.
Like olgadapolga I've never mashed anything up for my kids. DD (2) is currently loving spicy noodles while DS (4) is sausage and chips mad, I miss the days when he happily ate TomYum soup.
