Pop sweet potatoes or yams in the oven. Cook them at three fifty until their skin starts to pull away from the flesh and they become soft. No need to prep the potato because u r going to let them cool. After they cool peel it like a banana. They will taste buttery. I would give them to my son whole. I'd cook a bunch at a time and leave them on the counter in their skins for a couple of days. Just make sure they cook long enough. Another way to tell they r done is by smelling them Or when their skins start to break and delicious juice leeks out.

At 15 months, you child should be eating way more than just porridge. My daughter refused to eat commercial baby food so from the time she started showing an interest in regular food (about 6 months) we would take whatever we were eating and mash it, grind it, chop it, cut it. By 15 months she was eating regular solid table food cut up into bite-size pieces (for her size not for an adult). Just watch how much salt you use in your cooking. Now at 2 1/2 months she eats almost anything! lol. You can also check out this website http://www.cookinglight.com/food/recipes...

now is the time to shovel all and any food in their gobs, unless they have an allergy then obvioulsy not, in australia hienz make baby food sachets with baby bollognase and lasagnia shepards pie and a few others they are great just zapp them in the microwave its the perfect sized serve as well, but the more you expose them to now the less fussy they will be when they are older (usually), i give my son things i cant stand but he loves them but i often find that what i feed him one week isnt welcome the next as their taste changes regulary.

I'll back up Kaitlin and Tamara--most kids can start table food around a year old. Rice and noodles in little pieces are good, and if you child doesn't like the texture of meat (mine is 3.5 and still doesn't), beans and tofu make excellent protein sources. At that age we started giving my daughter whatever we were eating for dinner, and let her eat what she wanted of that. She *loved* chili, and still loves cornbread.

Your child should be eating basically what you eat. Make sure the food is cut into small bites and not too chewy/hard. If there are allergies, then you have to be careful, but otherwise, whatever you eat should be fine for your child.

AT 15 months they can eat pretty much anything. Even if there aren't any teeth yet, they use their gums to mash up foods. Steamed veggies, soft fruits, cheese, eggs, meats, soups. Just watch him and be sure you're right there. Watch for reactions if you have a history of food allergies.

For breakfast do you mean? They can have, toast fingers and marmite, boiled egg, scrambled egg, yogurt, dried cereal or cereal with milk (look at the sugar content) hot weetabix or cold. Anything really as long as you make sure there is low salt and low sugar.
