baby food woes. help!

See that messy kid? He loves to be in his highchair with food in front of him
 However, his favorite part of that is not the eating part...it's the play & get messy part.
Houston, we have a baby food problem. Grayson has reached that stage where he only wants to eat independently & wants nothing to do with me feeding him his purees that I lovingly slave over make in the kitchen. His mouth goes on lockdown. 

This is all fine and dandy except for one thing...he only wants to eat snack-type table food. His main food loves are goldfish, graham crackers, veggie sticks, mum mums, rice cakes...anything that is a carb. Don't know where he gets that from...

The kid can't live off of goldfish, at least not live & be nutritious. The only "real" food he loves are chicken nuggets. I bought the Morning Star veggie fake chicken nuggets and he loves them smothered in ketchup. He will not eat anything else. We give him small portions of just about every single lunch and dinner we eat & he will put it in his mouth, take it back out of his mouth, and throw it on the floor. 

I love the blogmunity (yep, made up that word) because there are so many other mamas out there that I get ideas from! I desperately need some ideas of things to feed this finicky baby.  How do I get him to branch out and try more things? Do you have any good lunch or dinner ideas to feed a baby?

Omg we are having the SAME problem! Kendall eats all the carbs (cheerios, bread, graham crackers, etc), her baby food and fruit in her meshy fruit thing... But will not touch diced veggies or fruit. If I give her a piece of banana or green bean she literally gags! Maybe babies go through a texture stage???

Avocado mixed with cream cheese, spread on bread and cut into tiny pieces. Just got this idea from my baby cook book and I'm planning to try it tomorrow. Thankfully Alcie will eat just about anything you put in front of her. Hope this works for you!
