Before you shop for this week’s ingredients, take note that foods for a six-month-old baby should be pureed smoothly, while seven- to nine-month old babies can take mashed food. Finely-chopped food is best handled by babies when they reach their tenth month. Enjoy making your baby’s high chair its happy place!
