    One slice of bread has more salt than two weetbix (well, the one I compared did, depends on the bread you use). You might want to check your bread too.

    How can I make food that has small lumps in it? What is the best way? I normally just use a hand blender thing.
    And how do u blend meat? Like chicken? I am sooo confused!!
    Why don't you try just hand mashing it with a fork? Also with meat/chicken or fish try mincing it, then there is no need to blend!

    Some meats I have bought already minced like chicken and pork and then I run it all through the food processor after I've boiled it with the veggies. I also chop chicken into small pieces and put it in the processor as well - adding more veggies than chicken makes the consistency more runny.

    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!

    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.

    It might be time to start broadening things a bit though and giving chicken a crack...
    Yep this is about what we have done too and avo mashed. Although we only just added fine minced chicken thighs. We are following the "Contented little baby" Book. So have only just started feeding at 6mths. Oh and DH tried her on pawpaw. She hates that and I dont blame her lol
