My ped recommended soft carrots, broccoli, sweet potato and squash. I would add pumpkin, peas, shredded spinach and regular potato to the list. Maybe also shredded cheese.
We do much of what you do (Earth's Best purees at daycare, oatmeal). Oh, my DD also really enjoys yogurt although that's probably not a self-feeding food at this age. I know what you mean about the mess, it bothers me too. However, I think we're going to just have to go with it for the time being. I did find that peas make a very limited mess.
I'll be watching this thread to see what other Mamas are doing.
