I was told not to worry about the teeth. They don't get their back teeth until they are almost 2, and they are eating almost everything by then. They learn to gum everything.
Here's our list:
I sometimes mash up crackers, cheerios or graham crackers (the honey is not dangerous in these) and roll bananas and other slippery things in it.
frozen peas (FAVORITE!) Straight out of the bag still frozen, they're tender, almost melt (we call them green baseballs!)
frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, melon, cherries, raspberries - he eats tons and tons of these - you might have to thaw for a few minutes, they're harder, or run under water for a sec)
canned corn, peas, beans, lima beans, garbanzo beans
black olives (sliced)
Bumpers Peanut Butter Cereal (be careful with peanuts)
scrambled eggs (another favorite, sometimes I put a little squash or sweet potato baby food in with the eggs - I do this with everything for my family to sneak in some more veggies, and they never even know)
Multigrain Club Crackers
Granola Bites and Morning Minis
chicken vienna sausages (they have nitrates, so I go easy)
organic cheese puffs
grilled cheese (I mix grated cheese w/ sweet potato baby food and a little butter to make a paste and spread it on - he likes this on crackers, too)
bagels with cream cheese (my family loves Bagelfuls)
Hopefully, this gives you some ideas. I have trouble thinking outside of the same old foods, too!
