    Meat and three veg!

    Hi everyone,

    I've been reading up on all the things I'm supposed to feed my DD on at this stage. She's seven months old and taking pureed food easily, not refusing anything. With meat, is mince fine enough, or does it need to be pureed further? I'm seeing that now we're supposed to be giving more mashed food than pureed.

    The easiest ways to give meat at that age are to big pieces of steak to suck on (too big to choke on!), safe bones to suck and chew (no sharp edges and big), or scrape a steak to get a sort of pulp that can be mixed in with other foods.

    There is a school of thought that finger foods are also fine at that age and many of here have followed that path. Google Baby Led Solids if you'd like more information - or do a search on BellyBelly!
