I feel like I give my DS the same stuff! He’s a confident eater as we weaned early and I’d like some ideas of more things I can give him.

At 6 months you can pretty much give most things except honey, whole nuts and high salt/sugar. Meat, fish, dairy, bread, pasta, rice, eggs, etc

It still does on my phone Violet1988!

OP, anything! We've been giving our DS a portion of our dinner for his since he was 6.5 months (weaned at 6mo), breakfast is cereal, fruit and toast and lunch is usually a snacky plate of food or a sandwich etc.
