Usually start with very bland food, so I would try mashed potato (a very runny consistancy to start with) and progress to mashed sweet potato, mashed pumpkin. Increase the thickness of consistancy as baby gets the hang of swallowing the food. Have fun with it and if baby doesn't get the hang of it right away don't stress and don't be discouraged. 4 months is still quite young and so it may take a few tries before he gets the hang of it.
