My DD is 4 months and has been VERY interested in food for a few weeks.
So far ive given skinless cucumber, steamed carrots and broccoli, bake pumpkin and kiwi fruit.
What should i stay away from (other then dairy and honey)?
Any other suggestions on what i can give to her? Preferably more vegies then fruit.

Avocado, if you slice it and leave the skin on, the skin holds it together while bubs eats the avocado..
Banana, this will split into sections length ways perfectly
Apple, I'd give dd1 a whole apple and she'd tackle it fine, dd2 took much longer to get the hang of biting it with her gums
Steamed carrot sticks
Broccoli, again steamed, mine would munch the tips off, as it was so easy for them to hold
Heaps more, I just can't think of right now!

A bit of dairy is ok- yoghurts and cheeses etc. stay away from runny egg yolk.
Fruits like kiwi and strawberries and tomatoes are known to cause mild reactions in babies, so just watch them closely when you give them those things.
For veg just cook a small amount more than you usually would at dinner time and pop it into the fridge for bubs the next day. Cauli, pumpkin, sweet potato, zucchini etc were big hits with dd.

I believe 4 months is still very young and milk is her main source of nutrition so you don't want to fill her up too much so she stops drinking , I would just stick to veggies and use them more as "practice" then at 6 months try all foods ( plus her tummy will be able to handle them a bit better )
