What would you recommend me to start with and how old was your baby? Mine just turned 5 months old, does well with cereal.

  • Oh and btw my youngest who started with bananas loves vegetables. My first was started on squash and he hates vegetables. So, so much for the whole don't start with fruit first or they won't like veggies theory.

  • You should start w/ veggies- if they get a taste of fruit 1st, then they may not want the veggies! Have fun watching the faces! -lol

  • DS started with zucchini. Good starter foods are banana, avocado and sweet potato. All can be either from a jar, pureed, fork mashed, or cut up into bite size pieces for baby to self feed (steam/bake any foods that aren't soft enough to puree or mash, or cut up). You can start with pretty much any fruit or veggie.
