Mac-n-cheese and mashed potatoes are always favorites with my little ones! The Gerber line is a good starting point, they have little food entrees for different ages/phases, even the 3rd phase jar foods have texture or chunks so you could still feed those, too. For breakfast you can fix oatmeal or pancakes. Soft fruits for a snack, such as bananas, pears or peaches. He could handle meats, too, just as long as they're small bites. Good luck and have fun!

Check out the Gerber puff snacks. They just dissolve in the mouth and also are soft enough yet for babies to use their gums to chew them. Also, try the snacks that are shaped like wagon wheels(forgot the name)also by Gerber. You can at a year feed him yogurt, applesauce, and any other soft foods. French fries are a good one but just not a lot of them. My daughter is a year old and has 5 teeth and we do feed her normal "big people" food as long as it's soft enough for her to be able to chew. Hope this helps. The gerber line of foods are great to start out with to try and see what is liked and not liked!

He can eat what you eat just cut it up into bite size pieces, he'll just chew it with his gums instead of his teeth.

1 year old can eat almost everything. 2 teeth won't stop him from managing to eat food. You could give him more mushy/soft stuff, but he will probably be able to eat pieces of steak as well. What have you tried so far?
