Once your baby starts to grow they need variation in food and taste. So, it's time to get creative! Your 6 to 9 month baby will be eager to try new foods now, and may even start to chew, with those beautifully new teeth. Learn how to create meals that will please his tiny palate! There are no hard and fast rules here. All babies are different, with their own unique likes and dislikes. Just like you and me!
At 6-9 months baby food recipes include softly mashed, or chopped into fine pieces of fruits, vegetables, meats, pasta and dairy such as yogurt and cheeses. Pasta, veggies, and fruit should all be soft cooked and possibly mashed with a fork or masher. (Bananas need only be mashed, l like added some boiled and cooled water to it to make it like a mouse, try it and you will see what l mean.) Raw fruits are often introduced at this stage. Meats and proteins should be cooked and pureed or chopped into small soft bits. If offering Tofu, you need not cook it first. Ensure dairy offered is easily manageable as they may have no teeth at all and if they do they have to learn how to chew.
