I made Tuna Casserole for dinner. (1 x 425gram can of tuna, corn, rice and sauce).
I really want to puree some and give it to DD for lunch as I think she will like it.
Can 8.5 month olds eat Tuna?? Or is that a no no as its a fish that eat fish?

Good to hear the thought is she should be fine eating it.
I was just unsure as they say so tuna or big fish when pregnant. She's already tried eggs, milk, cheese with no issues.
Last night she had meat loaf and veg puree'd (looks horrible but it was heaps yum! I had to try) and yeah I thought the tuna casserole would be nice for her.

Yep, try it. I wouldn't bother puree either. I would sit her in a high chair, pop some on the tray and let her go for it. I imagine that there is no big chunks in it and it's soft so there is no need to puree. She will love (and learn lots) squishing it in her fingers, playing with it and tasting it. Puree is unnecessary at 8.5 months. Let your child experiment with food. I wish I did it more with my first, that was one of my biggest mistakes. I did baby led weaning with my second.

Tuna is fine, it is a high mercury fish but apparently tinned is lower in mercury than fresh ! No more than 2 times a week is considered fine, great source of b vitamins (especially b12) I have been feeding DS fish from 6 months , as pp said no need to purée just flake on small pieces or tuna nuggets/cakes are a great finger food !

I will say I don't puree everything, well mostly I just mash or cut up. But I'm a little nervous with these new dinner foods, so Ive befriended the stick mixer.
Thanks so much everyone for all the tips and advice =) Its greatly appreciated.
We havent tried letting her go for broke in a bowl of food yet. She gets toast and crumpets etc. But haven't tried that. Maybe I should, would make me nervous lol.
