I'm sure lots of people will say the same, but the Annabel karmel, baby and toddler meal planner book is really good. Dd is also 6 months and has eaten everything i have made so far. Hope that helps.

I got one from MN the other day that I'd not thought of and it's really easy - pea and sweetcorn puree. I also mix this with cous cous (but ds3 is 7.5 months now).

I also do brocolli and cauliflower together with cheese grated on and mixed in.

Sweet potato with cod and peas.

Non-cook - banana and strawberries blended together.

Dd personal fave at the mo is a tasty little number consisting of sweet pot, parsnip and spinach. (it even looks as delightful as it sounds!
Cook sweet pot and parsnip for 20 or so mins in either water or chicken stock, add a little frozen spinach at the end, and just blend.
Most combinations of veg or fruit can be used now, or you could start adding a little chicken or fish to veg purees.

I love annabel karmel, loads of good ideas.
Ds liked anything with sweet potato in it at that age, sweet potato, spinach and peas was his favorite, also sweet potato and cod, poach the fish in milk firt and then add to mashed sweet potato.
