Jack is the best little eater, and INSISTS on feeding himself - which means he’s also a messy little eater. I’ve done a mix of baby led weaning (letting him feed himself solids) and pureed food since he was 6 months, and now he feeds himself most of the time, with the occasional pureed pouches when we’re on-the-go.
I get lots of questions about what I feed Jack, because I think we all get stuck in ruts and feed little kids the same things over and over again haha. These are my staples with Jack, and ones that are easy for him to eat!
**He has about 10-12 teeth right now, so he can eat harder foods now with no problem!
Shredded chicken (I make it in the Instant Pot)
Black beans, drained and rinsed
Kidney beans, drained and rinsed
Steamed green beans
Steamed sweet potato
Peanut butter toast
Oatmeal (I mix coconut oil and peanut butter into it)
Kodiak Cakes pancakes/waffles
