Finger food suggestions?

My son is 9 1/2 months old. We started solids a month ago and he loves food. But now, he wants nothing to do with the pureed foods and even yogurt is becoming boring. He wants finger foods that he can eat all by himself.
I need suggestions so that he can get a good variation of foods. Nothing too slimy as it's hard for him to pick up and nothing too hard to chew as he only has 2 bottom teeth. No tops ones to bite with.

So far, we have had success with

Baby Mummum crackers
Apricot pieces
Nectarine pieces
He loves mango but finds it hard to eat

Suggestions please!

Re: Finger food suggestions?

We're in the same boat. My DD hates pureed baby food but loves table foods, and she has no teeth.

Recently I started making homemade waffles and she loves to gum them since they're soft. She also likes pasta (I overcook it a bit so it's softer) and she'll feed herself. She also likes cheese so I give her small bits of cheddar 9anything softer and she'll bite off too much and has problems chewing).

I'm also looking for more ideas and look forward to reading the replies.
