    Default What should he be eating?

    Luke is 11 months. He eats baby food three times a day with cheerios and he has snacks usually twice a day. Snacks are usually crackers or other empty calorie snacks. I would like to get him eating more of the foods we eat and healthier snacks. This is easy enough at meal time, but he is pretty picky about trying new foods. He enojys self feeding but takes from the spoon very well also. Just wondering what are some other options? I've tried fresh fruit but it doesnt go over well. I can keep trying. He is cutting his one year molars so I know once those are in there will be more options (he has his 8 front teeth). I think he just struggles with new textures because he is so used to purees. I have tried some of the lumpier stage 3 foods and he just spits them out. Any suggestions?

    I don't know if your family has any allergy issues, but Thomas loves cottage cheese (large curd, whole milk kind), and he can pick it up. He also loves blueberries (cut in half) and likes raisins (we cut them in half). His favorite thing at the moment is English peas; he can eat his weight in them. The good thing about all these is that they're good, but they're also not too messy.

    Grated cheese, finely-grated carrot, green peas (smashed or whole if small enough), soft cooked carrot chunks, cooked sliver-cut green beans, anything out of a chicken soup (soft noodles, soft veggies, shredded chicken)...

    Thanks for the ideas. He had fruit for a snack yesterday - peaches and banana and he liked that. For lunch he had organic shells & cheese and he loved it. He was mad at dinner when I gave him baby food. Then when I gave him our food he was so happy! Its so nice to have him eating with us instead of me spoon feeding him before dinner or while my dinner gets cold! I'm just going to keep giving him whatever I'm eating as long as its safe. Its so fun when he actually likes something new
