Hi Jenny, nMy son is 11 months old and he is eating Gerber 2nd foods. There’s lots of fruits and veggies to choose from. He also likes the Gerber Fruit Puffs (banana flavor) but your little one might be too young for that yet. He also loves his Gerber Rice cereal. We make it with his formula or juice. For some extra Phe’s we add a chunk of banana. nTry not to stress too much. Easier said than done, right? As your baby gets older she’ll slowly be able to eat more and more and your knowledge will increase at that same time. You don’t have to know everything at once. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Work on a need to know basis. That’s what I’m doing too.
