Food before 1 is just for fun. My dd is 10.5 months. She is almost exclusively breastfed. She eats only avocado, banana, some egg, and chicken. She does not eat food every day. She doesn't want it. She does play with food occasionally, but I offer it and she doesn't want it. The majority of your childs calories and nutrition needs to be coming from formula or breastmilk at this time. There is nothing wrong with your child.

Look into baby led weaning. If she doesn't like purees, stop trying to force it.

 uh............... i made all babyfood from scratch. steamed intsead of boiled, etc. tastier and cheap. and easy to make. and no, babies CANNOT handle people food from the start. they need to be started slowly, to weed out allergies and test their ability to handle certain foods. people food is full of salt and sugars. purees are pretty much the healthiest food you can feed your baby. they are also tastier than baby food, which helps them to become better eaters.

Homemade puréed food is not good for baby? 

Quoting Retrokitty:

I never gave my son baby food.... Why are you worried? Babies SHOULD have normal food from the start. Purées are not good for baby.

Quoting drmkj:

Thanks dear friends for such valuable answers... 

NO I have not spoken to the pediatrician till now. 
She will only have the foods that we adults have, i will mash it up for her a little and she will have it like a pro-infact she wants that.

but babyfood is a big no.

i am worried

That's good. "Baby food" is truly unnecessary

There is no need to purée the food.

My 12 month old has been the same lately. It drives me mad, but she has plenty of wet and poopy diapers. She does eat, but only a few bites here and there all day. It worries me, but she isn't acting differently and she has the diaper counts she needs. IDK!

**She eats our food, as long as it is soft enough or made soft enough. Still, she was wating better before and just kind of stopped wanting it. Maybe her body doesn;t need it right now? You got me. She's a healthy girl though, so i'm really not worried.

 don't be scared of baby food, but DO avoid people food. babies don't need the salt and sugars as of yet, that WE like, to make it tasty. prepared baby food fruits are awesome, very tasty! if you don't want to make your own, start there. if you DO decide to make your own, just steam instead of boil. sweet potatoes always seem to go well, even tho i think they're gross! i have 6 kids, they all sort of started eating baby food on their own schedule, but they all got there! i too would mention it to your pediatrician tho. at least it would make you more comfy. and for me? i'd try some FUN foods, that baby can squish, play w/. frozen peas, macaroni.

 this child is not ready for solids, so yeah, gotta puree. otherwise that poses a choking hazard. and people food at that age is not yet appropriate.

I don't think they had the magic bullet in caves.

Babies can chew soft food just fine without teeth.

The child is a person so people food is perfect. Children shouldn't be fed cat food.
