My lo has been the same for ages so we do a combo - a small portion if mashed veg dishes/casseroles/stews etc which I put in 2 bowls - 1 I spoon feed her & 1 she 'feeds' herself - although about 10% makes it to her mouth!
I then give her lots of bits and pieces on her tray that she can pick up herself. Our favourites are:

Cooked veggies - carrot batons, florets of cauliflower or broccoli, wedges of roasted sweet potato, peas & beans (great for helping them develop their finger/thumb pincer grip)

Pieces of cooked meat - slices of turkey, chicken, fish goujons, chicken balls (all home made annabel karmel recipes)

Cereal - Cheerios, cornflakes, mini Weetabix

Others - cheese cubes, fruit slices, raisins, chopped apricots, rice cakes, toast fingers, or bread & butter, homemade pancakes, little sandwiches, chunks of toasted bagel or panini, homemade scones with very small bit of jam, chunks of well cooked omelet or chopped boiled egg, homemade 'pizza' (bread covered in chopped tomato/grated cheese/toppings & toasted then cut into shapes with cookie cutters), pieces of well cooked pasta.

Hope that helps x
