    ideas for paleo baby food

    Shop Now
    I'm trying to plan well ahead for when my kiddo will start table food. Any ideas/suggestions for nice, soft/mushy foods that are good for little ones? I have some really vague ideas but need more suggestions from you creative folks. Here's what I thought of so far:

    mashed sweet potato
    bone broth
    guacamole

    Um, what else??

    How old is baby? They don't need much beyond breast milk until age 1. Just about any fruit/veggie mushed up will do. Get a food mill

    Same thing you eat. No need for mushing it up.
    Once your baby can sit up and take food from you, let them take food off your plate
    Google baby led solids.

    Baby led weaning is the way to go. My daughter's first food was toast (before I went primal) at 6 months old. Sticks of cooked vege are good to start with because they can hold onto them nicely (carrot, sweet potato, zuchini etc) and slices of avocado and steamed/grilled asparagus, and banana. Strips of steak or bacon or cooked chicken are great. But basically whatever you eat the baby can too. Just don't expect anyone from our parent's generation or older to understand it or even support you in this. Its been totally brainwashed into us that babies can't eat solid food, which in reality is totally untrue. If you've ever spoon fed a baby puree food you'll know that they sometimes choke on that too, its how they learn.

    Totally OT, but funny...

    I have two daughters (6 and 3), about 2 years ago my MIL and GrandMIL had a conversation with me about baby food.

    "Do you know what food you should never give a baby?"

    (Now I'm thinking... oh man is there some food that has an allergy thingy like honey and peanut butter I don't know about?!)

    Me: "What?"

    Them: Hotdogs!

    (honestly confused)

    Me: Why...?

    Them: Because they can CHOKE on them! (bewildered look)

    Me: That's why you cut them the F up!

    SMH....

    When my son was about 9 months he loved gnawing on lamb bones from rack of lamb.

    I actually read it was more likely babies would choke on pureed food, because of the texture, they think they need to suck, which can become a problem.
    My children during baby led solids, did gag on foods, but they sorted it out quickly. Of course I was always right there so I could have helped had they needed it.

    regarding the mushing - what if they have no teeth?
