Going through the same thing... Mine is a bit older (13mos), but here are some ideas. He has to get used to different textures before he can really see that he needs to chew. I say "bite" and have a big cheer for him when he takes appropriate sized bites (of organic crackers, which he has to chew a bit...don't do those yet, start with things that melt easier like Gerber puffs or Cheerios so he doesn't have to bite) and I overexaggerate my chewing and say "yummm chew".
Here is a typical day for us:
cooked oatmeal with a touch of cinnamon
(cook it longer so that is is a little mushier)
1/2 of a bannana... sliced into thin discs, then break into its natural thirds...let me know if that doesn't make sense. Or other fruit cut into small pieces (peaches, pears, cooked apples, blueberries) the only fruits we have not done are strawberries, blackberries, rasberries, and grapes)
1 cup of milk
1/2 apple juice 1/2 water
1/4 cup of cheerios
Avocado and rest of am banana cut into small pieces
1/2 grilled cheese sandwhich (with the crust sut off of course! :) )
1 cup of milk
a few more cheerios to tide him over for dinner...maybe
homemade meatloaf (regular family recipe, but Gerber has a cute one to try)
yogurt for desert
any veggie cut in small pieces... we are now into lima and butter beans that my husband cooks for 2 days!
Here are a couple of sites. Hope he enjoys!
