Start with a bit of avocado mashed with breastmilk or formula. Then try a bit of baked and mashed sweet potato. Then try canned pumpkin, cooked and mashed beans, cooked and mashed apple, carrot, zucchini etc.
Be sure to avoid the allergy trigger foods. This is not a complete list: before age 1, no soy, dairy, wheat, citrus, egg white, strawberries; before age 2 no honey, chocolate, nuts.
The best book on feeding babies, toddlers and their families is called Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron. You should be able to find it at your local library. There is some great information on the website: www.superbabyfood.com
