  • Some good first time solid foods for infants/toddlers are things they can easily mash. Corn, Peas, Green Beans that are cooked until soft. Mashed potatoes. Mac and Cheese, Shells and Cheese. Buttered toast cut up into bite size pieces. Hot dogs cut into rounds then the rounds are quartered into bite size pieces. Cooked until steaming. Lunch meat cut up. Soup. My son loves Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup. I cook it in the brother, then drain the broth, let cool and serve him all the good stuff.

    That's what comes to mind.

  • Potatoes, bananas, green beans, carrots...really any veggie as long as it's been mashed properly. How old is the baby?

  • Anything soft enough to be mashed a bit. Green beans, Mac and cheese, carrots If your baby will eat it (some don't like the texture) mashed potatoes mixed with ground beef. Babies can pretty much eat anything you can as long as it can be chopped tiny or is soft enough to chew with few teeth.

  • I would introduce as wide a variety of tastes as possible. I think generally the more you introduce them to when they are young, the more likely they are to eat it as they grow up.

  • Corn isn't good, it's hard to digest. Pasta is only good if it's whole grain. Hot dogs and lunch meat aren't good for anyone and have chemicals in them. Canned soup is high is salt. Mac & cheese is bad because it is processed white flour pasta and it's made with milk that babies aren't supposed to have until after 12 mo.

    You want all the food your baby eats to be healthy. Veggies, meat, whole grains, maybe some cheese or yogurt. Sweet potato, yam, squash, carrots, banana, other fruit, other veggies, shredded chicken, thin sliced and shredded beef (not hamburger), other meat.
