What to feed my 10 month old?

I started off with the idea that we would do blw, all home-made, lovingly hand-prepared etc. Well, four months down the line and he has a pouch of ready-made stuff most days, as he quite often turns his nose up at the lovingly hand-prepared from scratch meals I offer him. I'm running out of ideas!

He is an enthusiastic eater in general, and will happily try most things, and can put it away in quantity when he likes something - it's just that I would really like us all to be eating more or less the same meals now, as usually we end up eating something separately.

What he will happily eat (aside from pouches)
broccoli, asparagus, sprouts, butternut squash, carrots, sweet potato
melon, apples, pears, won't usually eat bananas, hates citrus, kiwi gave him a reaction. Liked tinned peaches to begin with, now not interested. Doesn't like grapes. (However, will eat any flavour of pouch, so must be the texture rather than the flavour)
toast, rice cakes with almond butter, breadsticks
mashed potatoes

I just feel like I can think of very few meals that we can all share, that are healthy for him - eg, I think he would be quite happy with pizza, but that's not too healthy is it? And I'd prefer to eat salads half the time, but he doesn't seem to get on with leaves at the moment, they sort of get stuck in his mouth and I have to fish them out for him to furious protest. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Wow that's quite an impressive list of foods!

My ds is 10 months and his fave meals are

Cheese omelette cut into slices
Ham omelette cut into slices
Scrambled egg
Boiled egg
(Notice a pattern here.....all served with some fruit or veg afterwards.!)


Dairylea slice followed by some veg and fruit

Roasted stuffed red peppers (boil peppers first, stuff with cous cous cooked in chopped tomato and bake in oven covered in foil for half an hour with cheese on top)

He does eat a lot of pouches too !

Could you just give him what you are having and make sure there is one thing that you know he likes, maybe some veg. So usual stuff - roast, spag bol, fish pie, macaroni cheese, fish cakes, cottage pie, etc.

If you are having salad he could have everything but the leaves with some cheese or boiled egg for protein. You could make homemade pizza, that would be healthy and you could all eat it.

Also, homemade soup with toast, breadsticks, oatcakes etc to dip. Cous Cous salad (very messy) with different veg/cheeses etc was always popular - ds would eat it by the handful! Spinach and ricotta canneloni is tasty and they can pick it up.
