Well that depends on the child's age but generally speaking the more natural the foods are and the less processed they are is better, fruits, vegetables (of bright or deep colors), lean meats, whole grains, and even some dairy can be good. Stick with the food groups and keep foods in as close to their original form as possible.
It depends on their age. But if you're talking about a baby, you can feed them almost anything as long as you put in a blender to mash it and make sure that it's soft. Steamed veggies are great...bananas, avocados, peaches and pears in natural juices, yogurt etc....
My daughter just turned one two days ago, she has been eating a few table foods here and there. Today she ate some fish sticks and mac and cheese, she absolutely loved it. I wasn't sure if it was a good idea though.
-Do you all also know anything about how to get her to like and drink out of her sippy cup?
At a year old they can eat pretty much what you do perhaps with less seasonings if you like food spicier. I would put a yummy fruit infused water in the sippy cup or formula/breast milk. For infusing water with fruit, you slice up the fruit (we like lemons/limes) and put water over it in a container. It takes 10-15 minutes for infusion and just leave the water in container until you want to drink it. Soft table foods would be good if she does not have many teeth even though i have seen a baby with 2 teeth enjoy steak.
