I would agree with previous posters. Purée fruit..... However...,I will say this....
Give one thing at a time and note for any reaction (allergy) if you mix it all up then you so t know what caused it, if there is allergy that is.

Yep. A Nutri bullet. The only things I was told not to give was honey and raw eggs. Make sure meat (chicken, pork, fish) is properly cooked. But I gave here some bloody steak to suck on and she loved it. *shrug* it really comes down to what you feel comfortable giving. At first I mixed everything with breastmilk. Now I just use boiled cooled water if it's too thick. She has between 5 and 7 solid meals a day (I'm talking two weetbix, three strawberries and water being one meal) then still wants breastmilk after each feeding. And before bed. Sometimes she wakes through the night for a drink but she usually sleeps from 8-5 or 6 in the morning. She has breakfast and goes back to sleep for another hour or so. I'm a little worried to give peanut butter, so we haven't gone there yet. But dad and I don't have any allergies.
I should add, everything I give her is natural. Nothing from a packet, no preservatives. Nothing like that. (Apart from weetbix) everything is fresh.

I worry about the advice on here and I would go with what works for you. At this age breastmilk or formula is most important. Try not to add too many meals as they will impact on how much breastmilk or formula your child is having.
Generally around this age food is just for tastes etc, not for replacing a milk feed unless otherwise advised by a health professional

Alternative to rice cereal for 5 month bub
I skipped rice cereal entirely with DS1. My MCHN said don't bother it tastes like clag glue . We started with veg purée.
When he was a bit older (6 months) I used baby porridge made from oats - basically oatmeal that has been processed super fine (you could process your own oats in a food processor/NutriBullet). Also check out Belamys organic in the baby food section at woollies/Coles they have a few different ones from memory. You could also add a little formula and/or Apple purée to plain oatmeal (processed super fine).
