Answer: It is normal for babies to become curious about solid foods around the 9-month mark. Of course, not every bit of solid food is fit for consumption. Here are a few safe foods you can consider:
– Pureed foods from your dinner, so long as they are not salty or heavily seasoned
– Cottage cheese made with whole-milk
– Vegetables – cooked carrots, squash or broccoli
– Fruits – avocado especially
– Soft fish
Babies do not have teeth that can easily chew food. Every piece of food that you give your baby should be easy to mash with the gums. This is why pureed foods come in handy.
