Yes food processor if you don't have a mincer but for the small piece you would use you could even just cut it up yourself into tiny pieces with a knife , or your butcher will mince anything for you if you ask!
Thanks for the help! I was wondering how to introduce meat!
Do u think I should do lumpy veggies first though?
I did BLW so can't offer advice on lumpy stuff ! But I would just make a bolognese mince sauce and give her that, also don't be afraid to give her fish, either grill it and flake it into little pieces ( salmon is great) same with chicken - make a chicken bolognese or just make some homemade fish or chicken nuggets
I know your not doing BLW but grill a lamb cutlet and let her suck on it ! It's great practice getting her to hold food, it's way too big for her to bite off and choke on anything but she gets the meat juices which have vitamins ! ( plus a great photo op!)

DD is just over 8 months and eats:
Pumpkin, sweet potato, carrots, peas, zucchini, beans, broccoli, avocado, yoghurt, toast, apple, pear and I've just introduced chicken which she loves. Sometimes she gets packet foods (if I'm out of home made ones) which is usually a mix of fruits.
We used to give her farex but it just caused constipation even when I mixed it with pear. She also has the rusks and rice crackers to snack on.
I've started leaving lumps in her food now and she still has the odd gag but is getting much better.
Have also tried giving her finger foods but apart from the rusks, everything just turns to something to play with and doesn't end up in the mouth yet.
