I'm pretty sure I've lost count of the amount of times I've Googled BLW recipes, easy finger foods, what can my 7 month old eat. Weaning can be really difficult, knowing what to give them or not to give them isn't easy to work out.

 A couple of weeks ago now, it was approaching lunchtime and I wanted to make Edith something a little different. I don't want to get into the habit of giving ger the same thing everyday. I knew I had a tin of chickpeas in the cupboard, some sliced onion in the freezer (waste not, want not) so I thought I'd make a chickpea finger. Like falafel but finger shaped perfect for chubby hands to grip. 

Edith enjoyed these. Most of it ended up on the floor, but then again most of her food ends up that way. You can always break a small bit off and put in their mouth, just so you know they are eating something.

  2. They look great, and look like they actually stay together. My 22month old just destroys anything that pulls apart too easily. We will be giving them a go! #foodiefriday
