What do you mean about salt? I don't add salt to anything I make for the kids, or if I do it's only a very small amount. I also agree often what we offer babies can be quite bland. my kids all preferred food that had garlic or stock (home made) in it.

8m old solid HELP.
Salt is in most food so we try avoid all processed food and only eat bread every 2nd or 3rd day and avoid all tinned/food from jars and sauces etc we cook without salt and DH and I add after if needed - make sure you try lots of herbs/spices/ oils though!

OP I'm no help as DD seems to have some kind of intollerance so she only ever gets pears, peas, prunes and pumpkin.
DD is the same age and has 8 teeth so I worry about fiver food and her biting off a large piece and choking.

Sorry TnA I must apologise, I'm not much of a cook and I've never made my own gravy from scratch so pardon my ignorance there.
I used to cook a bit but hardly at all with DD around. Mind you I've never made a roast, I've never been a fan since my mum never cooked a good one, it just put me off them. Hehe

My DD didn't really take to solids consistently until about 9mo. She'd have bits and peices but would often refuse. We did a mix of finger foods and purées. She just kind of started going for it at some point and is a great eater now. At 14mo she only has one bottle per day (before bed) and eats pretty much anything we give her.
As for salt, a tiny bit of iodized salt in a batch of home cooked food is fine. Just avoid packaged foods most of the time. One thing DD loves is sweet potato chips - just cut into fingers, a light coat of olive oil and bake in the oven. Super easy and DD loves it. Might be a good option for giving finger foods a go?
