We now have an 11 month-old boy and he is learning to eat table food. To quickly cut our food into small, evenly-sized bites, I used a strawberry huller (the kind that looks like a stubby set of tweezers). It works really well with bread, cooked pasta, avocado… really any soft food. Neater than fork or fingers, and you don't have to do that awkward biting-off-a-piece-with-your-teeth thing which I think it kinda gross. The huller goes into our bag and comes out in restaurants and on the go. We love it!
