  • Sure you can if it is soft. I used to give mine mashed potatoes without lumps, and smushed veggie that we were having. If she has any allergies then be careful, but otherwise smushed fruits and veggies are good to let them try.

  • Does she have any teeth yet? I started giving mine table food when he got teeth and could chew it. About 7 mths.

  • smashed up fruit and veggies are fine to give her. i would stay away from meats and fish though, just cause of allergies.
