Ideas to get child to self feed...

I have a 2 year old boy (2 leg child) that does not like to feed himself. I have tried just about everything that I can think of to get him to eat by himself and you guessed it...he still wants Mom (me) to feed him. Ohh and he still prefers mushy baby type food. Anybody have any ideas on how to get him to eat "real" food by himself?

Its been along time for me, but I remember starting my kids out with finger food, fruits, cheerios, small pieces of chicken, cooked veggies etc. I always remember the Doctor saying "they wont starve themselves" so guess I would put the food out and let it set there, when enough time has passed pick up the tray,and no treats in between meals. Next meal you would probably get a different outcome- so in a funny way I think Cam had the right idea. Now there is a difference in "he can't feed himself" and "he wont feed himself" Don't worry to much, I'm sure he will be feeding himself before he goes to school:)
