6 Awesome Foods for a Baby Just Starting SolidsCasi Densmore-Koon
Grayson loves his food. He’s almost a year old now, and it’s so much fun having him sit up at the table with us while he feeds himself. This is my favorite age because he still is a baby but it’s so exciting for him to feed himself. I love being able to offer new foods and when it comes time to eat, he pretty much eats whatever we are having. Sometimes getting creative with finger foods for a baby can be hard or you might be looking for a different breakfast besides eggs. I am constantly asked what I feed Grayson, so I wanted to share with you a few of his favorite things that are on his menu everyday. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or snack-time, we keep these items well stocked for baby.

Baby’s Favorite Foods! 1 of 8
Click-through a few of our go-to favorite snacks for baby!
Oatmeal 2 of 8
Grayson is obsessed with oatmeal. He would eat it for every meal if he could. It's his favorite and an easy meal to prepare for your little one, especially as we head into chillier mornings.
Chobani 3 of 8
Chobani greek yogurt is a major favorite in our house. There are so many benefits to this yogurt since it's made of all natural ingredients, it's gluten free, and contains 3 types of probiotics. All the reasons I am so happy Grayson enjoys it.
Organic Cheese Balls 4 of 8
I just recently came across these cheese balls, perfect for tiny hands! They are all natural and come in great on-the-go bags from Costco and they are made by Snikiddy. If you haven't tried them out, you totally should. They are perfect for toddlers too!
Triscuits 5 of 8
Triscuit crackers make for the perfect teething cracker. Of course, always watch baby when they are eating something hard or that they can easily choke on. Grayson just loves chomping down on these crackers.
Veggie Straws 6 of 8
Another favorite for Grayson, especially since he is teething, are the classic veggie straws.
Lunch Time 7 of 8
One of his favorite platters and my go-to lunch for Grayson is apple sauce, blueberries, string cheese cut up into bite-sized pieces and veggie straws. All of his favorite things in one place.
Portion Trays 8 of 8
These plastic plates which are more like trays and are just perfect for baby because you can easily separate their food. I love the four individual sections. For $2 at Target, you can't beat them. They make feeding easy!
