    Default what foods is your 9 month old eating?

    DS has been having chunks of meat, beef, chicken and lamb to chew on. He really enjoys it.

    We've stopped the pureed food and I now just mash with a fork but I'm struggling a bit with variety and not sure exactly what else I could be feeding him,

    He has a milk allergy so dairy is out..

    What does your 9 month old eat?

    I just had a look at BLW and I've pretty much been doing this for a while - it's very messy but I think he enjoys just playing with the food.

    Thanks for your ideas - I'll try him on a few new things this week

    Pretty much anything we are eating with the exception of really hot curries.

    I just fork mash or give big chunks to hold and gnaw on.

    My ds enjoys avocado fork mashed with banana. He also loves mashed tuna with corn and a starch veggie like potato or sweet potato.
    I mix cous cous with veggie mixes. I made a beef casserole which he loved (just beef, water, bay leaf, peas, potato and carrot).
    My ds is VERY fussy, sometimes he will refuse dinner or kick up a fuss while eating, but then happily eat his yoghurt and fruit!!

    If you make a meal with salt (if you use salt, I do) would you feed that to your 9m old? I think I heard that you can after 9m, but wasn't sure.

    I gave DS a huge variety of proteins at that age as i think its important not to feed them the same foods all the time - we did BLW but you could flake/cut up into tiny pieces if you are not BLW;

    Mini meat balls ( or chicken or turkey)
    Falafel patties
    Grilled salmon ( flake into pieces)
    Steamed snapper fillet ( flake it)
    Fish /crab or prawn cakes
    Fish fingers ( flat head is best and I used rice crumbs)
    Pasta with tuna sauce
    Bolognaise with beef or turkey
    Lamb cutlets - let him suck and gum the meat, he won't be able to bite it off but will get the nutrients from the juice - I would cut the meat off and leave about 2cm of it on the bone and he would gnaw at it for ages!!
    - poached chicken cut into strips

    Make sure you add lemon or garlic or ginger or flax seed/olive oil to the grilled or steamed meat and fish for flavor and nutrients!
