    Default can baby have onion and unsalted saltine cracker?

    can a 7.5 month old have onion and unsalted saltine crackers? What about store bought chicken broth with 33% less sodium than normal? what are other good finger foods besides fruit?

    Onion in a food or by itself? If in a food, I don't see a problem with it. If alone, baby might not be too interested.

    Lots moms do offer unsalted saltines. If your baby isn't sensitive to wheat, it would be unlikely to be an issue. As an aside, whole wheat saltines are a better option since they provide more nutritional value than plain white saltines. The cookbook Whole Foods for the Whole Family offers a home made whole wheat saltine recipe that kiddos love.

    Are you offering the broth alone, or cooked in something?

    There are lots of finger foods! A few ideas:
    *whole wheat toast
    *meats
    *whole grain cereals
    *whole grain pasta
    *steamed veggies

    HTH!

    Thank you. The onion and the broth...I meant to use for cooking a meal. I bought a recipe book and some of the recipes say to use onions and broth. I was just a little hesitant.
