What are some "adult" food I can feed my 10 month old?

I'm normally a pretty creative person but when it comes to this I am stumped. He HATES the "3rd jarred foods" spits out all of the chunks. He likes the graduates freeze dried fruits, crunchies, yogart melts... but I hate to see him fill up on those. Do any of you have any ideas for me? Last night I made a roast beef, it cooked for hours so it was really soft he had two small pieces of that...

  • Avocado, yams, banana, ground rice/ oatmeal, steamed chicken ground up, applesauce, some berries like blueberries, peaches, yogurt, cheese. These all depend on how long your child has been eatting solids, if they can eat solids, etc. Every child is different. Mine love all of the above, but I added one item a week.

  • My favorite resource when I started my sons on solid "adult" food was this really really great website that has ages/ stages/ food/ suggestions.

  • I fed my kids anything if I thought it was too hard I out it in the blender. Just feed him what your eating and see if he likes it.

  • At 10 months old my son what eating everything I ate. Yogurt is something he loved and still does. Pea and cooked carrots, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a little cool milk. You might also try a little oatmeal just add plenty of milk to it so that its a little like soup.

  • Thanks for all the answers ladies! I'm going to try a little turkey for lunch and maybe some of the veggies left over from the roast last night. He's at such a funny stage. Also I think he's had a good meal then I pick him up out of the highchair and half of it is in the chair LOL!
