These frittata fingers make the best finger food for baby led weaning and toddlers! | My Fussy Eater blog Cooking for babies is HARD work! With my daughter I returned to work when she was 6 months old so I pretty much outsourced the majority of her weaning to her childminders from Monday to Friday. At the weekend I muddled along with a mixture of purees, fingers foods and those squeezy packages of baby food (don’t judge!) 

When my son came along I was lucky to have more time at home to learn how to cook for a baby and to experiment with different flavours and textures.

It wasn’t a conscious decision as such, my son just seemed to prefer to feed himself from an early age. And desperate to come up with filling and nutritious meal ideas I started making these frittata fingers.

They are tasty yet mild, perfect for little taste buds. I used broccoli and courgette / zucchini in my recipe but I often use other veg depending on what I have in my fridge. It’s also a great way to use up any leftover cooked veg that you have hanging round!

What I also love about these frittata fingers is that they are super soft and perfect for babies with just a few or even no teeth.

For UK readers – I’ve only included the measurements for this recipe in cups and not grams because I only ever use mug measurements for these. A standard sized cup or small mug will work just fine!

  3. In a bowl mix the eggs, cheese, flour and herbs together. Add the cooked vegetables and mix until well combined.
  4. Pour this mixture into the lined dish and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow the frittata to cool before cutting into fingers or squares.
Notes
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two days.

    Made these this evening, great taste but was much too soft to cut into any solid shapes. Tried grilling after to make firmer but no joy. Any idea what I’ve done wrong?

      Hi Sinead, that’s strange as they always firm up when I make them. Are you sure your oven is hot enough? A lot of oven actually vary quite drastically in temperature from water they say they should be. Try turning the temp up a little and/or cooking longer and that might solve the problem. x

    We love these! I added more cheese as my boy is a cheese eating monster, and most of the time a vegetable refusenik, but he scoffs these down.
    Thank you!
