Sweet potato (best if it has cinnamon)

Edamame, peas, and apples
Baby cereal with steamed and pureed prunes or dried apricots
Pork, sweet potato, and apples
Chicken, carrots, leek or onion, and noodles
Mango and papaya
Mango, banana, and whole milk yogurt
Blueberries, banana, and whole milk yogurt (really can't go wrong with any smoothie combo)
Carrots and parsnips
Any kind of white fish, spinach, brown rice

Big kid foods:
Steamed broccoli
Steamed cauliflower
Steamed green beans
Lima beans, smashed
Chicken or pork cooked in the crock pot (falling apart tender) with vegetables
Salmon with dill (really loves salmon in any preparation)
Halibut/cod/tilapia seasoned in any way, usually with some fresh herbs and/or pepper
Banana bread
