My son is almost 11 months old. I found frozen veggies a bit harder for my little one to chew if I cooked in microwave. Steaming them worked much better, but is a little more work. Or there is sodium-free canned veggies. They are a little harder to find. Jewel and Dominick have some, but you can find more at Wild Oat or Whole foods I think. I cut up blueberries, which my son loves; broccoli that has a little bit of butter on it, egg yolks, american cheese, chicken, pork, or pretty much anything healthy that we have for dinner.
