What to Feed a Toddler

Okay, she can't walk yet.  Is she still a toddler?  Either way, she needs to eat.  What kinds of things do you suggest for a 14.5 month old for lunches?

We've tried:
raisins - love
grilled cheese - hit or miss
peanut butter sandwich - love
jam sandwich - I think she hated it.  I'll try it again some other time.
macaroni and cheese - okay
all kids of fruit - love
baby goldfish - love
pickles - love
homemade chicken noodle soup - hit or miss (chunks she picks up)
yogurt - love, but I don't like having to feed her

I'm trying to think through our toddler menu at daycare...I'll skip the foods they couldn't feed to themselves. Everything we served was either cold or microwaved. We didn't have an oven. We also just ripped the bigger things into pieces for them to eat since we were wearing gloves and cutting them took too much time.

Ravioli, flavored rice, pasta, lunch meat (sandwich or plain), cubed cheese chunks, chicken patty/nuggets, potatoes cut into little pieces like the ones in cheesy potatoes, sloppy joes, meatballs, frozen veggies (we had some kids who only ate them cold), baby corn dogs, hamburgers, toast with cinnamon on it.

For Willow, even though she isn't a toddle she eats like one. She loves blueberries, strawberries and watermello. One of her favorites are blueberry muffins. Pizza, grilled cheese, yogurt but I agree about the feeding her part, noodles, cinnamon raisin toast, small pieces of chicken or chicken nuggets and her new thing is cheese sticks. I know there are more. She insists on eating everythign the big kids eat.
