Holding food for baby - problems in the long term?

HI,

I started weaning my 6 month old last weekend and have given her a variety of finger foods so far but her coordination isn't very good and she finds it hard to get things in her mouth. Normally her fist or fingers are going in her mouth instead of the food. She is really keen to eat and if I hold it for her she will lean forwards and suck or try to ear the food. How can I encourage her to pick it up herself? Is it ok to hold it for her or will it cause problems in the long run? She gets very frustrated when she can't eat the food herself.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Thanks!
