Q.

Baby Food

My baby will be turning 1 year next month. His two bottom teeth are out but still battling with the top two. At the moment he still prefers the purity foods 10mth one, he hates chewing the rougher foods and pulls the food out of his mouth with his fingers. But he doesn't mind eating us our meals with us (same plate). except the meat. His lunch box for daycare consists of a Purity Porridge in the morning either jungle oats of any of the purity cereals for his age and a yoghurt. My concern is when he turns one, what type of food should i pack for him?

Until his teeth are out he will not want to eat foods which are not soft and smooth.So he will continue eating what he does at present. His diet seems quite mixed at this stage and I presume that he is gaining weight well and growing normally.
