What Kind Of Foods Do You Feed Your Baby?

According to Babycenter, these are the ten best foods for baby:

Dark green leafy vegetables
Garbanzo beans
Mandarin oranges

I just started feeding my daughter food at 6 months and have only made it to squash on this list.

Does/did your baby eat foods like this? I wouldn't have thought to feed her some of these.

  • We've never done garbanzo beans, but my kids have always loved all types of beans. We've done all the others though plus more with my 11 month old. My 2 yo loves broccoli which amazes and pleases me, since I really don't! But I've always given them things that I like and am eating, plus some stuff that I don't care for just to allow them the chance to taste different foods.
    I did jarred food with my first, but for my 2nd-5th we just mashed whatever we were having with the back of the fork and gave it to them.

  • My daughter would eat all of that, but we don't give her certain things. Beans give her gas and so does broccoli, so she's limited on how much we give her. She wouldn't eat baby food so she went straight to table foods.

  • I was wondering about that. Some of those foods look like they would cause more gas.

  • Wow, I hope they mean those foods r okay as long as they're smashed, a six month old could choke on some of those things!
    My son is almost 10 months and eatsa lot of different things (he has teeth) but we avoid hard, or round things, or things with tough skins! his favorite thing to eat though is nectarines!
