I know my daughter was still a mostly-breastfed baby until she was around 14-15 months old. Up to that point, she ate perhaps a teaspoon or two of solids per day. It never did her any harm- she hit all her milestones on time or early and has always been a big, strong, active kid.
When feeding solids, remember that it's not your responsibility to get the baby to eat: it's to present healthy choices, and allow him to choose among them. Fruit and unsweetened yogurt are healthy choices, so I see no problem with continuing with those!
