My son is 6mths old and really enjoys his food. I started weaning early so he is pretty used to the purred foods. So when can i introduce lumpy food, and what can i start with?

I would say anytime now really. Or at least a bit more textured than pureed food.

You could try puree-ing his food with a little less water and make it a bit more lumpy. Also, try adding a little bit of chopped up pasta and a bit of grated cheese mixed in - these all change the texture

Other than that, finger foods are a good idea, bits of boiled veg, broccoli, carrots etc, so long as they are not cut to be a choking hazard! And try things like a teacake too - chances are he'll mangle it all up but its a good idea to introduce different tastes and textures

And get a big splash mat
Have fun
