If your little one can’t tolerate dairy, gluten, eggs and you’re looking for some simple healthy baby finger foods, or if you just need some baby finger food ideas that are not packed with processed stuff and additives (like most store bought baby foods are), then you’ve come to the right place.

All these gluten free dairy free baby finger foods don’t require a lot of preparation and are perfect as baby led weaning foods, for snacking or as an entire meal.

Make Baby Finger Foods Without Dairy & Gluten

Some children may need gluten free baby food, dairy free finger foods or both gluten and dairy free baby food recipes because of an allergy, or because they are lactose-intolerant, as my baby girl was.

The signs of intolerance started to appear when she was about three months old through diarrhea, colic and severe eczema. Even if doctors won’t admit it, I witnessed my baby recover through an eczema friendly elimination diet combined with the GAPS diet protocol.

Food allergies play an enormous role in eczema and digestive issues the most common offending agent is wheat, or more specifically, gluten, followed by dairy and sugary foods that trigger flare ups.

Therefore it’s important to avoid these for a while and give time for your baby’s tiny gut to fully develop and heal.

By avoiding I don’t mean replacing them with gluten and dairy free store-bought baby food alternatives. We are trying to heal a sensitive digestive system here, and not bombard it with more processed foods.

Skip Packaged Gluten Free and Dairy Free Baby Snacks

There are so many snacks and finger food for babies and toddlers available on the market that is advertised as healthy but they’re usually not.

Even if you’re trying to replace your baby’s snacks and finger foods with gluten and dairy free commercial alternatives always watch out for additives and artificial ingredients.

Most of them are full of unnecessary fillers and sweeteners that have no nutritional value.

Fortunately there are many natural gluten free dairy free finger foods that you can prepare. The produce section in a grocery store offers a large variety of foods.

Balance them with whole gluten free grains, legumes, lean meats, seeds and nuts – just make sure they’re also unprocessed preferably organic, non-GMO whole foods.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Baby Finger Foods That Require Little Prep Or Basic Cooking

Healthy finger foods that are suitable for 9 month old babies, 1 year old babies and toddlers:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables (cut into appropriately sized pieces)
  • Steamed or oven roasted vegetables (cut into small bite-size)
  • Boiled beans, grains or gluten free pasta.
  • Boiled or roasted meat (ground, shredded or diced into small pieces)

TIP: Do not overcook fresh vegetables, or cut them up a long time before cooking and leave them in water, or cook them early and re-heat before serving – as all this reduce the vitamin content.

The Best First Baby Finger Foods 
  • The best first finger foods to offer to your baby are ones that are soft and easy to bite and chew, like cooked / steamed veggies (like sweet potato, butternut squash, carrots) and soft fruits. Babies need to learn to bite off small, soft lumps, manage and swallow them in the mouth. Also, picking up foods helps a child to develop manual coordination and learn about textures.
  • The best baby finger foods for your babies are those made from good-quality ingredients (whole, fresh and organic).
  • Try making healthier homemade baked goods like some baby banana pancakes or muffins, don’t buy store-bought frozen foods.
  • Later, according to your baby’s chewing skills and food handling (babies 8 months and older), you can offer raw fruits and vegetables. I started with finger sized pieces and then progressed to smaller chunks once the baby learned how to pincer grasp.

Tips To Consider When Offering Baby Finger Foods
  • Never leave babies alone when they are eating at any time to make sure that they don’t choke on any pieces that break off in their mouth.
  • Start with soft finger sized pieces of food and progress to harder textures as soon as your baby has mastered to chew.
  • Babies learn by watching what you do – show your baby how to bite, show her the chewing motion yourself.
  • If you are offering raw food, make sure to wash it thoroughly and it is organic (if you can afford it).
  • Avoid all processed meat and especially those covered with breadcrumbs or other coatings.
  • Children do not need sugary foods such as sweets, soft drinks or sugar for energy, best for your toddler to eat fruit rather than drink the juice.
  • Avoid adult meals, such as burgers and sausages – take-aways and highly processed fast foods, also low-sugar and artificially sweetened foods and drinks, foods with added nutrients, ready meals, canned ready prepared pasta in sauce, whole nuts (choke hazard).
  • Alternate finger foods with soups or purees (dairy free) and if your children refuse to eat a certain vegetable you can include it in a pureed soup or leave it on a side plate near them, they might eat it later.
  • Don’t give up: keep offering new foods, don’t get upset if foods are rejected.

Here Are Some Of Finger Foods Ideas (Gluten, Dairy, Fish, Egg And Nut Free) That My Baby Enjoys:
  • CELERY, AVOCADO, CUCUMBER – Organic celery stalks are good for a teething baby (they are fibrous and the choking hazard is lower) cucumber sticks and avocado. Always supervise you baby and asses their chewing abilities.
  • Cooked CHICKEN HEARTS (Organic organ meats are a good source of group B vitamins, amino acids and minerals), steamed green beans, cooked amaranth rolled into cylinders sprinkled with hemp seeds.
  • SWEET POTATO, YELLOW SQUASH, ZUCCHINI – Roasted cut into cubes.
  • CHERRY, PEACHES – Buy cherries and peaches when in season and make sure they are organic. Usually I give the fruits separately as a snack, for a healthier digestion.
  • ASPARAGUS, BUTTERNUT SQUASH, ZUCCHINI – steamed asparagus (high in anti-inflammatory nutrients), butternut squash (full of vitamin A) and zucchini noodles.
  • CHICKEN BREAST, SWEET POTATO, ZUCCHINI – Roasted organic chicken breast, sweet potatoes and zucchini noodles.
  • CHICKEN, BROCCOLIS, PAGHETTI SQUASH – Organic roasted chicken breast, broccoli and spaghetti squash which is more nutritious than pasta and fun to play with.
  • CELERY, APPLE sticks, diced JICAMA
  • BLUEBERRY, PAPAYA, NECTARINES – Raw fruits are enzyme-rich, especially papaya, these can help with gut healing, controlling pathogens and immune support.
  • BEET ROOT, JICAMA, CARROTS – roasted soft beetroot, raw jicama and carrots cut into sticks, you can also grate them or serve larger pieces.
  • Cooked sliced ZUCCHINI, cooked WILD RICE (a good balance of proteins, carbohydrates and fiber), shredded rainbow carrots.
  • MELON (it’s best eaten by itself, separate from other foods).
  • STRAWBERRIES, RASPBERRIES, RICE CAKES with pumpkin seed butter spread (a good source of zinc; beneficial for skin health and anti-parasitic).
  • CUCUMBER, TOMATO, RICE PASTA with creamed broccoli sauce (steamed broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkin seed butter + water to thin out).
  • GREEN BEANS/ CELERY/ BEETS/ SQUASH – Cooked organic green beans, beet root and acorn squash ( good source of Vitamin A, C and B6), grated celery root (anti-microbial properties and boosts immunity).
  • VEGETABLE SALAD – Organic roasted sweet potato, asparagus, yellow squash and finely chopped kale.
  • ORGANIC PEACHES & BLUEBERRIES – a good source of vitamin K1, Vitamin C, Manganese.
  • CAULIFLOWER, TURKEY, CARROTS – Organic roasted cauliflower, carrots and turkey thighs (great source of protein and B Vitamins).
  • She’s happy as long as she has something to snack on!

While the same baby finger foods are appropriate for a 9 month old as they are for a one-year-old babies or toddlers, you can begin to offer larger, harder in texture pieces, that they can bite off themselves.

Gluten Free & Dairy Free Finger Foods For Toddlers

You can even go ahead and try making some gluten and dairy free finger food recipes, like these options presented below. Just make or serve smaller sizes.

Update: At 20 months my daughter stopped being intolerant to eggs, nuts, gluten or dairy. At the age of three – still no intolerances. She’s basically on the same gluten and dairy free (real food, organic) diet, AND she can eat regular cakes and desserts on special occasions without any problems.

If your baby deals with really severe eczema, gastrointestinal issues and many food allergies then I strongly recommend you read this book: Gut and Physiology Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Allergies, Autoimmune Illness, you will get answers for so many questions.

Lay The Foundation For Healthy Eating Habits

What I learned is that when you have children with allergies it is essential to help them form a healthy digestive system from the beginning. Because this will lay the foundation for a good overall health later.

It’s also important to help children develop patterns of healthy eating from an early age, what you feed them at the beginning will be the base of their food tastes. It can be hard enough to plan ahead and prepare everything fresh, but that’s only temporary and you’ll be amazed later that it all worked out.

If you start with sweet food it will be hard to make them eat something else later. My little one has no problem in drinking smoothies with ginger and greens, she drinks them as if they were milkshakes.

Kefir 200 g (I have banana kefir for children)

sugar 1 tsp.


vegetable oil in the dough 1 tsp.

soda 1 tsp. (I added 0.5)

flour approx. About 100 g, but it comes out differently, depending on the density of kefir and the quality of the flour. Stir the dough quickly so that there are no lumps. I do not use a mixer for this purpose, stir with a whisk or fork. The dough turns out like a very thick sour cream. The pan should have a thick bottom. We heat the pan, add 1 tsp to the dough. vegetable oil, stir well and put small pancakes in a hot skillet greased with oil.
