When I plan my meals for the week I know if there is something that LO isn't going to be able to eat so I make extra another day and put in a container to warm up later. I do his lunches the same way. If we are having a chicken dish I grill extra and cut it up for his lunch the next day with some veggies. That way DH doesn't have to guess what I would want to give him for lunch...my way of controlling the situation with my baby
I haven't had many problems finding something that LO can eat of all of our meals now that he is over a year old. We started with soft finger foods instead of purees.
