If she is eating, puffs, cubed potato, cheese. Cooked peas should be fine, they are basically a mush in the middle anyway.

This thread kinda died. What foods are everyone's little ones eating? Are you still doing mostly purees or are you adventuring into softer solids?
Natalie is probably eating a good mix of both, I find that her frozen purees make for a good quick meal during the day, and then at dinner time when we are all sitting down she will often get what we are eating or a variant of.
She absolutely loves spaghetti, small pieces of chicken, veggies and potatoes for dinner. She's really fond of feeding herself so we are leaning towards solids more and more.
Anyone have any good quick meals with soft foods that are great for during the day?

I am finding the same thing with the puree. We usually have puree/yogurt/oatmeal combo for breakfast, and then solid/puree combos for lunch and dinner. Today I went out to lunch and forgot his yogurt so he had 1/4 of a grilled cheese sandwhich and some apple slices (which he loved chewing on!) For dinner he had puffs, spagetti noodles and pieces of pear.
He loves feeding him self so I am starting to incorporate small pieces into most of his meals and snacks!

Since I have been so stinkin' busy, I haven't made any baby food purees. I have a little fruit left in the freezer. So I've had to buy some jars to send to the babysitter's. In the evening Kaysen usually eats what we do.
I'll have to try spaghetti. That would probably be fun to try to pick up and feed himself.

Since there isnt much fruit choices now I got 12 pack of apple/apricot from Earth's Best and all I can say , its horrible. The hommade food is way better tasting. It tastes so sour and it has a weird aftertaste and smell. I have to mix it with bananas then its ok. I think its the citric acid they add to preserve the food makes it taste funny.
Emily still hates her veggies, she only eats lentils& apples, butternut squash & apples and carrots & apples but that one I have to mix with bananas. Guess thats ok for veggies. She loves toased bread with cheese.
