Question: What texture should my 6 month old be using?

What texture should baby puree be?

Babies under seven months should be given finely pureed food only. Older babies, who are already familiar with eating from a spoon and the consistency of puree, can eat pureed food of a thicker consistency. The ingredients should still be so soft after cooking that they can be easily squashed with a fork.

How do I transition my baby to textured food?
