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?

OMG That's funny...and that one I haven't tried yet.
Yes, he will eat Cherios. As far as veggies, meat and such no he does not pick them up and eat them. He does play with them (pushes them around and stuff) but they don't go in the mouth. And yes he does sit with us at the table. If I put a small piece of meat or veggie in his mouth it just comes back out. Doctor just said let him sit in his chair longer, she said alot of the time parents don't leave kids in front of food for long enough. At one time he was eating but he would only eat the meat, then he just quit eating that. When I do give him food I do give it to him off of my plate.
