At about 8 months, we started an afternoon snack if he seems hungry before I get home from work - this is usually plain yogurt with some pureed fruit added, or fruit in a mesh bag . I also started giving Finn some Happy Baby puffs (the Spinach and Kale ones), but usually only given him these after a meal (when we are trying to eat!!). He loves, loves, loves these. They are great practice for his fine motor skills and they are also invaluable when we go out to eat - they really occupy him. We just started some cheese this week.
The Happy Baby snack container suggests that a baby is ready for this type of snack when they are crawling, pulling to a stand, and able to chew.
