  • Anything that isn't a major choking hazard. Most cultures don't have "kid food," so with the exceptions of things like fish with bones and raw carrots, which adults choke on easily enough, try your kid on EVERYTHING.

  • Whatever you eat! Consider this a challenge to make/keep your diet as varied and healthful as possible. Avoid/limit the obvious stuff like no coffee and don't let him live off of cheetos. And avoid anything you know he's allergic to or that are just too hard (raw carrots, whole nuts, etc.) and just make sure it's cut up into the right size for his chewing ability.

  • Any soft table food they can mash with their gums/teeth.  On the link below you can click on different ages and see what the baby can eat.

  • DD likes banana. When she first turned one, we would get cans of low sodium chunky soups, drain the broth, and give here the veggies and noodles because they were cooked until soft. I cut everything up really small and gradually made the pieces bigger. She learned how to use her biters a couple of weeks ago so now I don't really cut stuff up anymore.
