How do I get my daughter 15 months to transition to table foods, I have been giving her baby foods and cereal with her bottled milk. Im scared she wont eat properly. Any suggestions?

She should be able to eat pretty much whatever you are eating. Sometimes she is not going to eat very well, but she will be ok. She may not eat much of her veggies one day, but eat lots of fruit. The next day it may be the opposite. That is one of the hardest things as a mom....we have provided them with food since day one. Now the choice becomes more theirs. As long as you are offering healthy choices she will eat healthy just may not be a balance eat meal time or each day. But that will get made up over time.

I had the same concerns as you. My 16 month old daughter didn't care too much for baby food so she got table food around 8 months. You can try cereal like cheerios, cut up some bananas, steemed veggies... Anything that is easy to pick up and easy to chew/mush. Bite-size pieces are the best. Just sit with your child while she is eating in case she has trouble. She may not eat properly at first but she has to learn some time. My little girl pulls apart pb&j sammies half the time just to lick the inside.
