Our top 15 dinner recipes that can be served as finger food or eaten with your hands! Brilliant for picky eaters to create a more fun dinnertime experience.
Why is finger food great for fussy eaters?
There’s something about finger food (or in fact any food that can be eaten with your hands) that makes mealtimes feel that little bit more relaxed and that little bit more fun!
And for a lot of kids, a more relaxed mealtime can often mean they are more inclined to try new things perhaps, or to eat that little bit more than they would if they were battling with knives, forks and spoons and the formality of it all.
Eating is such a sensory experience and if you think about it, lots of the snacks that kids seem to really enjoy like crisps, ice lollies, cake and the like are all finger foods or food that you eat with your hands so why not extend the sensory experience to to main meals too!
We’ve put together our top 15 dinner recipes that can be served as finger food or eaten with your hands!
