Our list is getting a tad extensive over here, we're going with the new Australian guidelines which are a little different, but hey, works for us. Basically it's none of this teaspoon of one thing for x amount of days stuff, it's rice cereal for a few days, if they can handle it, give them everything and let them set the pace. Seems to work very well for Audrey, she eats anything you put in front of her, she's like a garbage disposal.
According to the list for the nurse she has had; sweet potato, potato, broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkin, zucchini, spinach, peas, carrot, apple, avocado, banana, pear, cucumber, nectarine, passionfruit, celery, beef, snapper, chicken, semolina, turkey, salmon, lamb, green beans, parsnip, corn, apricot, blueberries, peach, cantaloupe, plum, watermelon, honeydew melon, tuna, white rice and pasta.
Salmon and plums are by far her favourite foods though.
We're doing baby led weaning, so not really spoon feeding purees. So what he's had, he hasn't had much of since he's feeding himself, but he's tasted broccoli, banana and avocado. Oh and DH gave him a taste of applesauce this weekend. This week I'm going to make some sweet potato fries to share. I also have a mango and avocado again.
I started Marcos at 4 months so he's had quite a few things: rice cereal, oat cereal, carrots, green beans, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, peas, apples, blueberries, prunes, pears, peaches, bananas, plantain, cassava, chicken, beef, turkey.
I could not diversify his diet too much while in Cuba last month because food options are limited there but now that we are back I will start introducing other things.
Also, I was making my own baby food and had stashes of fruits and veggie purees in my freezer but then because of the 1-week power outage I experienced during Christmas week, I had to throw it all out so now I have to start from scratch. *sigh*
Much like Audrey, Adelyn has had all kinds of foods that to list them would take a long time. I started her with them late December and have been feeding her solids ever since. She loves the fruits but it's still a battle for the veggies and meats. :/
We can add toast to our list. She's had it a few times and is a big fan. She's had avocado on toast and melted cheese on toast. She cracked me up with the cheese on toast, she hit the point where she was full, but she kept playing with it for a bit and figured out how to open it up (I fold the toast over and put the filling in the middle so she doesn't get it everywhere), she ate the cheese out of the middle, then threw the toast on the floor.
ya I havent started that with d either ( self feeding ) BUT she I she can pick up little things because when the kids leave any type of something on the floor like a bead...she has picked up and tried to put in her mouth.
OT side note---She does like to rip up kleenex and put it in her mouth....
