  • Oh, for the best meal ideas go to and go to the menu planner, select what stage your childis, and it will give you (According to the food pyramid) what they need each day. =)

  • I give my 11 month old table foods bc she won't eat the puree foods. I just pretty much give her a little bit of what we're eating at each meal unless I know its something that will choke her or is something she obviously shouldn't have.
    Like today for breakfast I have her a scrambled egg. The other night she got to eat spaghetti.

  • I made my own baby foods with my daughter, and I just kinda went with she couldn't ahve strawberry's, milk or raw honey.
    So if I made a smoothie, before I'd sweeten with honey I'd pull some out for her to try too.
    Her favorite was what I called her blueberry muffin. I'd use mixed or whole grain (she never did like rice) cereal and then I'd send a little applesauce, no sugar variety, and some frozen blueberies for awhile in the blender nad mix it into the cereal.
    I was also a bit of an advocate for eating what the rest of the family is eating, or close to. The only thing I was agianst is I refused to send meat through my blender. EVER. If they can't chew it and eat it then it can wait.
    Now may be a good time to try some pasta cooked really soft or other soft cooked veggies that baby can pick up and finger feed. Not sure how developmental to age approp that is, but I also go by my kid a lot too.

  • It sounds like she's old enough for some soft, small table foods. Cut up a banana, avocado, sweet potato, cheerios. If you want to try a meat, you can take ground beef and spread it on a cookie sheet, and bake until done, and offer that, it's small and relatively soft. Oatmeal is a good idea too. Fruits and veggies, anything you can steam or bake until soft, and cut into small pieces, or anything that is soft enough to not cook.

  • Why not give her table foods? By that age, my sons were eating mostly table foods. They can eat almost anything you would eat, minus all the spices and seasonings.

  • I've been sharing table foods with my daughter since we started her on solids at about 6-7 months. As long as what you're eating is healthy and well-balanced, it will be good for baby also. At 10 months, my daughter was eating just about everything we ate except meat & eggs.

  • My daughter never ate pureed foods. She went straight to chopped table foods at 10 months old. Just cut up whatever you are eating :)
