  • You could start making the purees a bit lumpier, but otherwise I don’t have any suggestions.

  • well the advice here is Tassie(and I hope it’s the same Aussie wide!!) is that Bub can eat anything now, you don’t have to introduce food item by item. So Bub can eat whatever you are eating(aside from any known allergies!) so either purée your bolognaise or ash it depending on what stage they are at! If they are already into finger food… Eggs and soldiers, sandwhiches, cooked veggie sticks etc… Custard, yoghurt with fruit!

  • 7 month olds don’t need anything more than puréed, mashed foods. They get all their nutritional needs from puréed fruit, meat and veggies. Don’t add salt or sugar, of course. Pasta dishes would be good too

  • Sweet potatoe mash

  • A potato and pumpkin mash always goes down well, and you can try sweet potato too. Cauliflower and broccoli also are nice mashed rather than pureed.

  • you can find more yummy recipe at kidspot.com.au or coles baby & toddler club.

  • Fruit and vegie purees are good, you can mix with custard or yogurt. Pureed veg and meat soups with rice or pasta are great too.

  • soups are a good option too

  • My little man was and still is a huge fan of mash potatoe

  • I made good stocks using meats, veggies or both, then blending the meats and mashing/blitzing the veggies. I use the stocks thinned with water to cook pasta or rice (cooked soft enough your gums could mash them) then mixed them together.

  • Instead of peaking veggies into purée just mash them. You can also try soft meats like mince and chicken. Mine liked chicken mince which I would also mash and add some pumpkin or sweet potato to.

  • Scrambled eggs are always a winner. You can add anything you want and my girl loves it. :-)

  • My son loved shepards pie at that age and I also used to do a tomato pasta but just cut the pasta up smaller.

  • I used to mix mostly puree with a little rice or really mashed up mince. Try mince and rice with pumpkin puree (I know it sounds gross, but my little ones loved it). Also Rissoni is great if your little one is ready for pasta.

  • Sweet potato was my daughters favourite.
