eggy bread and little tiny squares of sandwiches. bits of soft strawberries or peeled nectarines.
fish cakes or flakes of salmon on their own or through an omlette.

Avocado - chopped into chunks - really easy if ripe to mash between their gums...

Ripe fruit - like pears, nectarines, melon, etc.

Chopped up steamed veg - like sweet potato, butternet squash, etc.

eggybread is it ok for dinner...?

my ds used to have eggy bread for dinner more or less every night for about a month. Beat up a whole egg and some milk/formula, dip the bread in both sides and let it soak up the egg and then cook in a frying pan (dry or a little olive oil), medium heat so the egg cooks all the way through but doesn't burn on the outside. and then cut into little squares. my ds favourite! he would have this at 5ish, bath and milk at 6.30.

omelettes are good, cut into strips

banana slices

peeled cut-into-half grapes they just suck

dairylea triangles

breadsticks, with fruit or veg puree spread on it

laughing cow cheese triangles are DS's fave - it's softer that cheddar cheese and easy to hold. he also likes well cooked green beans and softer fruit like slices of peach, mango or pear. he's intereseted in little florets of broccoli or cauliflower but tends to pull them apart and squish them rather than eat them... but worth a try...

how long do you cook the eggy bread???

I don't know if it was cook inside....

I'm not sure about the taste...

just cooked whole slice of bread....

he didn't like a first....will try again...

I do a couple of mins each side and then cut in half to check its cooked but it does stay quite soggy and sweet.

that was ok then..........

Ds is 7 1/2 months & likes all of above plus bits of cooked onion/mushroom/pepper from whatever we're eating - also cubes of apple, dried apricots, lumps of Quorn, pasta, noodles, baby sweetcorn, sugarsnap peas - we tend to scatter a selection of bits from our own dinner in front of him so he can try everything.

He's only got one tooth just surfacing but seems quite adept at gumming stuff to death!
