That's normal for her to push it out of her mouth or gag a little. It's a completely new food and texture. Try making a really thin puree of a mild-tasting fruit and trying it once or twice a day for two weeks. Watered-down baby cereal is good too out of a bottle (special cereal bottle with a larger nipple hole and a push-up bottom). I don't think you need to worry about her nutrition yet except some doctors do recommend an iron supplement while exclusively breastfeeding. However, it's good to get her used to more solid food gradually so when she does need the extra calories, it's not so hard.
