I'm torn on what kinds of food I should be giving my 5 month old. I started her on hommade babyfood.. She has everything that I think she should try for her age group. Any suggestions

At 5 months they don't even typically need any food, so whatever you want to try... save for a few allergens and/or choking hazards is fine. Just a tiny amount and only one new food every few days. There is also nothing wrong with sticking with whatever she's already had for a few more months. Always give breast milk or formula before solids and just let her have fun with it.

You could basically start her out on anything but Strawberries. Some babies could be allergic. Make sure she has had breastmilk or formula first then offer a little bit of food because food before age 1 is just for fun and taste. Start her with some basic veggies, like green beans, peas, sweet potatoes, carrots. Then you could do some fruits like apples, peaches, pears, melon, blueberries.
