Audrey and Gabe arent quite there yet... but bake a sweet potato and whirl the insides in a food process with water or formula to think it.... avocado is supposed to be yummy.... do the same thing... squash.... green beans, peas.... I think we will do veggies before fruits.... but fruits... bannanas, apples, pears.... I think my friend said her son liked mango (he might have been older)
fun fun... mess mess! :)
Bananas then avacados. He didnt' have cereal - never had rice, and had oatmeal a few months later... like around 9 months I think.
Freezer ideas: sweet potatoes, green beans, carrots.

Peaches. Evie *LOVES* peaches! I just cut them into sections, peeled them, and froze them. When you defrost fruit after it's been frozen, it's mushy, so I didn't even have to cook the peaches. I just threw them in the blender.
We also did avocado, peas, pumpkin, sweet potato, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, and mango.
I just used canned peaches and pears or mashed up fresh ones on the spot. I didn't freeze any of those.
Did anyone have a problem with peas? I couldn't get the "skins" of the peas to chop up in the food processor so there were little things Ben gagged on.
Definitely don't try to pre-mash and freeze bananas or avacados. Those wil ljsut turn brown and gross.
Oh and applesauce is good. Just buy the "natural" stuff. Watch because I was amazed to find out that just the regular old Motts applesacuse is loaded up with high fructose corn syrup! yuck.
Thanks ladies! Looks like I have a nice little list to start out with. I think we too will start with Veggies. I figure if I can get her to eat them then its one person I can have a veggie with, since DH wont eat any of them. Silly boys.

They have a really good list of which foods to start with and how to prepare them. We started with sweet potatoes, squash, banana, avocado, apple, green beans, pear, peas, and carrots. Then we tried pumpkin, zucchini and we will do mango next. She loves them all :)
