    I'm not sure about pumpkin seed but one of my sons favorite foods when he was around the 1 year mark was baked pumpkin with a little butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

    Oh it is LOL i would just cut the pumpkin into strips like you do for watermelon and put them on a baking sheet dot with butter sprinkle with the spices and toss them in the oven until they were soft.

    You can also take pureed pumpkin and add it to oatmeal with a dash of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon for a yummy breakfast!

    Pumpkin seeds were on the "yes" list from DS's doc. I toss them in a little olive oil & salt & roast them in the oven - he loves them! (Although I do have to hide them from DH, or they disappear...) He had them for the first time at 13mo, although we had the okay at a year, because I was starting so many new foods and I wanted to do them one at a time.

    Oh - and the list says that the seeds can be whole if the 1-year molars have come in, and should be crushed if they haven't.
