I give my dd greek or natural yogurt (full fat) with some fruit mixed in or au naturel. i got some banana custard pots the other day with no sugar. thinking of trying fromage frais too (natural with fruit stirred in). are there any other things I could try that are full of calories and goodness? she is 6.5 months.

My ds loves grapes cut into halves with yogurt. Custard is always good and cheap too. Is she OK with lumps yet? I'm guessing at 6.5 months then she's not eating lumpy food yet so at this point I'd stick with what you've said already. Purreed banana mixed with her usual milk either breast or formula. Fruitapura fruit puree pots are good, my ds still loves them now. There are loads of flavours, the pear and pinapple one is always a winner here. When she gets better with lumps you can offer her more types of dessert but for now sounds like you're doing fine!

Yep, custard doesn't need sugar and it's still yummy. Not sure about the rice oudding though but I don't give that to my ds as I always get it out if a tin blush!!

i've made rice pudding without sugar and whilst it doesn't taste brilliant to me, my DS loves it!
Tesco do it in a clear bag, with blue label on, that you measure with milk and cook for 5 minutes or so. It is called pudding rice.
Any left over, I put in sugar and I eat, yum!

could always add a teaspoon of fruit such as pureed prunes to sweeten it.

Have you tried Semolina?
you can mke it with milk instead of water for extra calcium/calories etc.

I add banana or any other fruit puree i have in the fridge.
