    Default Introducing textured food/finger food

    Hello ladies,

    My son has been doing fabulous with pureed food for a little over a month now. I'm wondering when I should introduce textured food - I was thinking of starting with yogurt and shredded pieces of fruit, adult oatmeal with bm, prunes, and other things with skins. I haven't tried finger fruits because he's getting his second tooth but always gags and chokes on anything he attempts to eat...so I think that through textured food we'll be able to wait for some more teeth and until he's more ready. Any advice tips, how did textured food work w/your lo?

    Thank you!

    My son really likes organic brown rice puffs. I like them as a finger food because they dissolve in his mouth so I don't worry about him choking. I've also made his purees a little bit more course lately, like just mash them with a spoon or fork rather than put them in the food processor.

    That's sounds like a great idea, especially because they dissolve. I'll def. try that. Thanks!

    I second this suggestion. My LO loves these even with only 1 tooth! We also like Cheerios!
