Baby led weaning help....

Hi everyone, I have 6.5 month old twins who are currently weaning! I have introduced pureed foods to start with but really wanting to move onto some finger foods / more baby led weaning rather than blended foods or jars! How do i manage the risk of choking? What kinds of foods do people offer? How do i transition from blended to finger foods? They have tried the melty puffs and do great with them, have also tried banana in one of them little mesh bag things 🤷‍♀️ Sorry for all the questions im really nervous about them choking 😩

When I weaned my two I gradually made their food more lumpy so they got use to chewing and made sure it was soft enough to eat. I also cut up food, which they can chew, into bite size pieces. The more teeth that they got the More variety was introduced.
