I cook all of my little ones food myself but I am a bit stuck at the moment with what fruits I can feed her and whether they have to be cooked or if its ok to just blend them raw? Any help will be apreciated. :-)

The only fruits I wasn't giving our man at that age was citrus (oranges etc) and kiwi fruit. If it was hard I'd cook it a bit, soft ones just went straight to him, mashed up usually with a fork. When he started finger foods, pieces of banana were some of the first ones I gave him.

Everything!!! YAY!!! If they're hard, steam them, if they're soft hand them over... that's my rule :o)

Fruits like veggies are great, blend raw is OK as long as hard bits wont cause choking.
but no need to mash up too much as their gums are really strong, as she gets older mash less and less to just chunks otherwise she may be a fussy eater. Never really mash to a puree. Hard fruits soften by cooking, NEVER add extra sugar, they have plenty in already. dried fruits like apricots are good to chew and suck on

It depends on the fruit. Soft fruits that are very ripe like bananas, pears, mango can just be mashed up. If you want to give her apples, cook them first. You could also try to just feed her small soft pieces of melon or grape
