  • anything you eat in just smaller portions and smaller pieces so he won't choke. I would not suggest tuna fish yet or peanuts, or shell fish. but chicken, fries, eggs, pork, veggies,( i would suggest frozen veggies and not canned because of all the sodium and preservatives in the canned veggies), beef, potatoes, try him on a little of everything you eat.

  • Just because he only has 6 teeth doesn't mean he won't gum to pieces everything he gets in his mouth. They have amazingly strong jaws! Just make sure to cut things up really small. And finger foods will be interesting to him.. Spaghettios, Raviolios, popcorn chicken cut smaller, cheerios, cocoa puffs, etc. along with the things the PP posted. Also, when teething, they sometimes revert back to smashy, soft foods. Mashed potates, mac & cheese, mashed sweet pototoes, oatmeal, fruit (madarin oranges, pears, peaches) grapes cut in 4's. The Gerber graduates have alot of good things, but our LO had his faves and we stuck to those.

  • Anything but nuts, chocolate and honey. Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron is a wonderful book on feeding babies, toddlers and their families; you should be able to find a copy at your local library; more information at www.superbabyfood.com
    Lots of whole, real foods. Beans and leafy greens for calcium http://www.pcrm.org/health/prevmed/building_bones.html
    Good fats like avocado, eggs, hummus made with olive oil.

  • You can feed him most anything. You will want to avoid citrus fruits, strawberries (because of allergens), and honey as well as shell fish and fish high in mercury (tuna, sword fish, mackarel, etc.) Keep it healthy foods, don't start him on sugary cereals like froot loops or anything like that. Mine loved cooked squash, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, green peas, green beans, boiled chicken, pastas made with ground turkey, meatloaf cut into little chunks, grilled cheese sandwiches in small pieces, stew (because the beef gets tender enough you can just pull it to pieces).

  • Anything you eat, just cut into appropriate pieces. Watch for allergy signs. At that age, my son ate everything. He even ate shrimp and fish at that age and now at 13 yrs old, he is a picky child.
