    My daughter will be a year in about a week. We have basically given her "big" people food for the last month or so. (She refuses to eat baby food). We basically give her whatever we are eating. We do try to give her a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables finger food size. We just cut whatever we are eating into finger size and baby size bites. She has had pizza, mac n cheese, all beef hotdogs, hamburger, chicken, spaghetti. We just try to introduce a new food carefully to watch for an allergic reaction.

    Good luck!

    To my tot, everything is a finger food :haha:

    Noodles and pastas are always a good meal idea, because they aren't too messy require a fork or spoon. Try cheese and spinach ravioli, so your tot can just pick it up and eat it. Also, toddlers find it fascinating to play with long spaghetti noodles and eat them (just keep an eye on them because it could be a choking hazard if too long). Or try Wacky Mac, which is pasta made from vegetables in fun shapes.
