My 9 month old eats anything!
Breakfast ideas - savoury muffins, scrambled eggs, porridge, fruit toast, Weetbix, toast with Vegemite or cheese or avocado or creamed corn, pancakes (I make them sugar free), yoghurt. Any breakfast I give I also give a piece of fruit (banana, plum, pear etc.)
Lunch ideas - sandwiches (toasted or normal), vege sticks, poached chicken, cheese, fruit, leftovers, quiche, broccoli nuggets, fritters, frittatas
Dinner ideas - spaghetti, meatballs, risottos, lamb cutlets, chicken, strips of steak, stir frys and I always serve with veg, cucumber sticks, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower etc.

I haven't read all the other comments, so please forgive me if these suggestions have already been mentioned.
We opted for BLW with my dd, she has rarely had purée. You will be surprised how hard their gums are and just how much they can actually chew with them!
Here are some options I like to feed my dd during the day:
- vegetable hash browns (grated vegetable of your choice - I usually do zucchini, carrot & sweet potato, add a little flour and egg... Fry like a pancake
- savory muffins
- finger sandwiches - my dd loves avocado, other options are banana, Vegemite and peanut butter
- corn on the cob is a huge hit at our house
- mini platter with bits of ham, grated cheese, cherry tomatoes and fresh fruit
- cruskits with peanut butter
- frozen fruit, great if they are teething, my dd LOVES her frozen blueberries and watermelon
- pita bread pizzas with ham, cheese and pineapple
- homemade icy poles, I do a plain watermelon and a mango, blueberry and banana one.
- yoghurt with added fruit pieces.
For dinner she eats whatever we eat.

There is a big difference between gagging, coughing something up & actually choking.
Noise. Choking is silent - as in no air is getting in if they have inhaled something and obstructed the airways.
9/10 they are coughing which means they are sorting themselves out by moving the food back up to spit out or try again. If this is case let baby cough, don't panic, don't slap their backs and don't offer water as this may worsen the situation.
They quickly learn the gagging reflex and what does and doesn't fit in their mouths. It's all apart of eating and growing.

Thanks so much for all the great ideas!
Another question, can I cook with cows milk for my baby? and does it need to be full cream?
03-04-2014 01:42 #17
Yes and yes. Doesn't have to be full cream but it's preferred. You can use milk to mix cereals or add to solids just don't need to offer a full bottle just yet.

I gave DD some bread cut into strips today which she really liked and liked playing with it but here I was worrying the whole time so I kept breaking it up even smaller ha ha.... I'll get better.
I kept checking her mouth and she didn't seem to be swallowing it straight away I could see it sitting on her tongue.

Love the great ideas on this thread. I give bub both mashed and finger foods. Ideas are: mashed banana and frozen berries
Strips of omelette/scrambled egg
Whole wheat banana pancakes
All sorts of veges mashed up
Some finger food veges eg soft cooked potato and carrot strips, broccoli floret
Often our dinner can be quite spicy so I mix this up with yogurt to cool down the spice - eg mince mixed with yogurt.
As I'm not sure how much she actually eats with finger foods, she gets organic baby porridge at night mixed with half cow's milk and water so that she is at least a bit full before bed.
