Finger foods for 9.5 month old

DD is now getting right into the finger food idea. She is starting to freak out if I feed her things, rather than her trying to do it herself. She is 9.5 months and doesn't have any teeth yet. When she uses a spoon she shoves it in her mouth but she also grabs it with her other hand and squishes up the food.
I have given her a frozen whole wheat bagel to knaw on. Also she has fed herself plain pasta and small pieces of turkey. This is a new development this week, so that is all I have tried.
Any good suggestions out there?

Also, I read at the start to give them one new food for 3-5 days and watch for any reactions. Do I have to keep doing that? She has had a whole slew of meats, fruits and veggies so far, without any reactions. I know to stay away from the obvious allergens, but I would like to start giving her some of our casseroles or other multi ingredient dishes.

DD's just starting to tolerate finger foods, so we do organic wheat cookies (Earth's Best, I think) once in awhile, soft tofu, banana, avocado and sweet potato...baked apple nibs, too.

I'm doing 1 week in between introducing new foods and only mixing in things she's eaten in the past--but that's just my plan. DD's 11m.

My DD loves Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Oat O's. Also the gerber organic fruit and veggie puffs.
