Hi Everyone! I am so happy to have come across this post! After reading all of your responses I feel like I have severly deprived my son lol. He still has a bottle for breakfast about 7 am, mid morning a snack of yogurt, lunch he has a stage two meat and veggie combo with a stage two fruit, afternoon snack is some of those gerber graduate puffs, dinner is the same as lunch, and then before bed a final bottle. I keep thinking i should be feeding him more table type food, the doctor told me he can really eat anything now but that is so general. I don't know what to feed him or how to start introducing this and giving him enough to make sure he is full! He has two bottom teeth and the top two are coming in now, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

Toast with cream cheese and applesauce spread on it, and cut up. This is a new favorite for my boy. Bagel pieces, broccoli, cottage cheese, plain rice cake(small pieces), canned pumpkin, pureed canned pineapples mixed w/ oatmeal pablum and plain yogurt, avocado pieces are other favorites as well.

My 10 month old daughter for breakfast still eats baby cereal for breakfast with a yogurt and in between there and lunch she eat strawberries and bananas cut up small ... she only has two teeth. She will eat almost any fruit. For lunch I sometimes give her whatever I'm having but usually just jarred baby food and then supper she eats whatever I eat. Rice, spagetti,any veggie, chicken, ham ... at this age you can almost try anything ... just slowly if they are not use to it.

I also give my son cheerios and yogurt for breakfast, I make him cheese sandwiches,(which he eats with help). I pretty much give him what we eat as long as it isn't too spicy or acidy like oranges, which upset his stomach. My advice is too try soft foods out, whatever you eat. Good luck!!

My 10 month old still has the baby cereals for breakfast with some cut up bananas, peaches, mandarin oranges,etc, that she can pick up. Lunch is usually cubes of bread, cheese, ham and some yogurt, applesauce, etc. Supper is fish, chicken (shredded), or whatever we are having (rice, spaghetti, lasagna, potatoes, soup, etc. ) She also loves cheerios, toast fingers, arrowroot cookies

Lydia is 10m old and she eats what we eat. Meats and anything she can't gum/chew, I cut up, but there really is nothing she can't tackle. I don't give her nuts,honey, strawberries or other items that may/could give an allergic reaction.

It is so true about the hidden salts. That's why it really is best to just make it yourself and control the salt. A recent study found that people who eat pre-made foods spend as much time in the kitchen as people who cook from scratch. So you might as well do it right!

I'm introducing table food to my 10 month old slowly... trying to keep her on baby food at least one per day until she is a year... just because I know what she is eatting with baby food, table food ends up on the floor and in the high chair... since she is small I have to make sure she eats enough. But i have added whole wheat paste wheels, scrambled eggs, ground turkey meat (with no additional seasonings) grilled chicked chopped into small pieces. I package it into daily containers so its always prepared and also easy for travel. she eats the meat alone with a veggie of baby food.

my baby loves porridge for breakfast and a fuit puree. lunch and dinner is either rice, flaked fish and vegetable (all chopped up small and cooked until soft) cooked in vegetable/chicken stock. meat with potatoes and vegetables -choppped up small and cooked until soft. or pasta with cheesy or tomato sauce. I haven't used a blender for my son (almost 10 months) for a while now. I make sure the food is soft enough for him to eat. if he starts getting lazy about chewing towards the end I can mash up the food a bit more. I use a bowl with textured base where I can mash meat and veg to a fine consistency if necessary.
I will start chopping up the family meals for him in a few months time but not now as I don't want him to take too much salt until he is one. there are lot of hidden salt in foods cooked for adults - even from fresh.

My son has oatmeal and fruit (mashed or small cubes) for breakfast, yogurt or cottage cheese with a vegetable for lunch, and then whatever we're eating for dinner-I'll either put it in the food processor, the baby food mill, or just break it up into pieces, depending on what it is.

I feed my 10 month old the same things the rest of the family eats. The only things I exclude are really spicy items (like chili or peppers). I just puree what we are having and he eats with us. This works best if you don't use a lot of packaged foods and make things yourself. If the baby has teeth start introducing very small "chunks" in the food.

Cooked rice and pasta, bananas, cooked carrots diced, peas, pretty much any vegetable cut in small pieces and cooked until soft. shredded cheese or very small cubed cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, I do "chicken" nuggets cut up really small or any boca products (we are vegetarian), Anything that is small and soft is usually ok.
