help with getting an 8 month old to eat baby food?

My Daughter is 8 months old and I have been trying for months now to get her to eat baby food. Every time I try, she does everything she can to get away from the spoon. She eats puffs and crackers so she starts out leaning in, but as soon as she realizes its a spoon she turns her head away. I know she is hungry because I always try to feed her before I give her a bottle. I am at my wits end. I don't know if its the spoon or if its the texture. My mother keeps telling me to just start her on table food (like soft fruits and veggies) so she can feed herself, but she only has two teeth! so I worry she would choke.

What should I do!? please, I will try anything to get her to eat.

Soft table food is right. Or hand her the spoon and see what happens. She might just not want to be fed and wants to do it herself.
