You can introduce fish anytime from about 8 months. I steamed the fish, but I also bake it in the oven with some garlic. I just used normal hake. Fish fingers are also nice.

You can give egg yolk from 9 months, but what a bother trying to separate etc. I just waited till a year when you can give the whole egg.

Nice foods to give at 9 months include chicken livers, fresh fruit, pro vita, cottage cheese, yoghurt, vegetables, steamed chicken breast.

Finger foods are very popular wiht babies this age.
