The Benny Bug LOVES to feed himself. At around six months he mastered his pincher grip and at 8 months went through a period where he ONLY wanted to feed himself.
Cut up bananas and cooked egg yolks for breakfast started to get old pretty fast, but were both very quick finger foods. Quick is ideal during the week when I have all four kiddos running/crawling around (in case you didn't know I keep the T-ster, my nephew, during the week.)
One morning I realized that the big kids' kiwi fruit would probably be a perfect finger food for the Benster.
They were rather ripe and perhaps a little too soft for little fingers.
And by the end, someone looked like they were covered in fleas :)
