Anything soft. one of my daughters fav things that i would make is called banana berry toast. i would smash bananas, stawberries, and cream cheese together ( i would warm the cream cheese a little to make it soft and easy to mix) then put it on toast. also anything thats soft. mased potatoes and gravy, yorgurts they make baby yogurt that is very healthy and made for babys and my daughter loved them. there called yo baby yorgurt. i also gave my daughter frozen waffles or pancakes and eggs. i hope this helped. good luck

Feed her things that she can mash with her gums. I would feed her grilled cheese, pasta, yogurt, soft cooked vegetables, applesauce, bananas & other soft fruits, Gerber Puffs (dissolve very easily), oatmeal, cream of wheat, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes. My son liked cream cheese sandwiches. I fed them to him until he was closer to age 2 and then I started giving him peanut butter.

My son didn't get any teeth until he was nearly a year and he was eating table food before that. I gave him cheerios, chopped grapes, bananas, cooked cubed vegetables...as long as it is soft and small, she shouldnt have a problem. My daughter also ate all those things, as well as the puffs now available, they pretty much melt in their mouths, she also loved the yogurt melts and the freeze dried fruit bits all available in the baby food aisle.

anything and everything!! Just make sure it's soft enough to chew easily or small enough to swallow safely.

Personally, my children ate everything in sight when they were one, I just made sure that the pieces of food wouldn't be too big and choke them. If you are worried about possible allergies, speak to your pediatrician about what foods would be appropriate for that age. Here's a quick link after I google search it Hope this helps! http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/toddler/f...
