I would try some unflavored yogurt, maybe mix a bit of banana baby food with it. I think it is too early for finger foods such as Cheerios but I have a terrible fear of my baby choking. My 11 year old wasn't allowed to have finger foods until she was probably 18 months old b/c of my fear. LOL
My six month old only gets baby food two to three times a day right now. We have gone through all the yellow foods and are just starting on green foods. I have given her some yogurt mixed w/banana baby food and she liked it. Other than that, I can't think of any other snacks.

Actually, by allowing your child to start out self feeding you will alleviate the risk of choking a lot sooner. Slurping liquid food off a spoon poses its own choking risks.

DD is 9 months old and has always self fed. When they can self feed they're old enough to eat solid foods. If they can't pick it up and put it in their mouth, they're not ready.
