My son is almost 18 months. He has 6 teeth on top, 2 on the bottom and no molars. We need to get him on more 'big kid' food but are having trouble. He can't really eat a lot of foods because he can't really chew yet. We are still giving him baby foods to help make sure he his eating a good meal.
The problem, he is getting really picky and some days, just wants to 'snack'. (no junk, just baby snacks like puffs). We have tried to puree some foods but the problem is that his father and I don't eat a lot of foods that can be pureed and eaten safely. Other days, we aren't hungry enough for dinner at all. Is there any other ideas, instead of baby foods, that we can try with him? Or is it just a good idea to keep the jars around as a good backup?
