I started with cooked veggies when my kid completed her 1st bday. Initially started with carrots. beans and gradually started introducing diff veggies. Actually children of dis age will be interested more on the plates decorated with bright colors:)

At this age our kids were eating pretty much everything that we ate. They had trouble with lettuce, and with apple skin, but chunks of cooked veggies weren't a problem.

The teeth in the front aren't used for chewing. They're for biting and ripping. Molars are for chewing, and before a toddler gets their molars they just chomp and grind with their gums.
