At one year old she should be able to eat a lot of foods, not just soft foods (even if she doesn't have teeth). Toast, chicken, fruit, cooked veggies, pieces of cheese, rice, pasta, and fish. She can probably eat almost anything that you are eating! I have two girls who both started eating finger foods at around 8 months old.

There is a great book you can get, its by Annabel Karmel Super foods for babies and children. It is broken down into age and foods to feed them at that stage in their development.
Avocado is fantastic, mash it up and away you go, can be put on bread and cut up into small pieces.

Slow cook beef with onion, garlic, carrots, potato ( any vegie really) then puree. Can add extra mashed potato if needed.

Small pasta such as risoni is great added to pureed mince and pasta sauce. Make a white sauce and add tuna and puree and add pasta. Or pureed chicken breast. Vegetables can be added for extra nutrition.

Most foods can be pureed in a blender then as she gets older just finely chopped everything so she gets used to different textures.

Goodluck and happy cooking!!

Hi,

Some ideas:
1) Rice pudding with pureed fruits - cook brown rice with milk, a little sugar, a dash of cinnamon powder til thickened.
2) Baby minestrone soup with small pasta shapes
3) Risotto with veges or chicken

I found that investing in a couple of good baby and toddler recipe books were a great help. All the best!
