Ainsley is coming up on 10 months, so she’s been eating solids for a little while now. I’ve had a couple Moms ask me what she eats so I figured I’d go over some things she enjoys to eat!
Keep in mind her nutrition still mainly comes from her formula so food is more of a fun extra and a way to explore tastes and textures!
I’m also a little bit of a paranoid Mom, so so haven’t been too adventurous since I’m absolutely terrified of her choking…
That being said, here’s what Bubs loves to eat!
I’ll start with breakfast;
- Fruit purée mixed with cereal and cinnamon
- Scrambled or boiled eggs
- Cottage cheese with cinnamon
- Ricotta cheese with puréed blueberries
- Shredded apple or pear
- Shredded cheese
- Pasta with tomato sauce
- Steamed broccoli
- Veggie purée
- Shreds of chicken
- Sweet potato
- Fruit puffs
- Rice cakes
- Any fruits
In general she’s not too picky. Except when it comes to veggies, she’s less of a fan, so those are harder to get in! She likes broccoli but that’s about it, trying to get carrot or anything of the sort past her lips is a struggle… But as for anything else she’ll pretty much happily eat it (when she’s in the mood that is.)
I’m still pretty hesitant as to what I give her because my worst fear is her choking, but as the weeks go on and she gets better with chewing I get a little better at allowing her new things!
