You can introduce anything you like with a smooth texture. With my son, I gave him mashed banana in yoghurt for lunch. Vegies for dinner which are also mashed.

The jar food is always good a a starting guide, it will help give you an idea of what bubs like. Also the health centre nurse can probably give you some ideas at bubs 6mth check up.

Hope this advice has helped.

Thanks Sal!!
any info is muchly appreciated its scary being a first time mum!!!!

Maybe you could try soem pureed apple / pear or some other fruit mixed in with the rice cereal. Try the fruit first on its own and see what she takes to, and then add it to the cereal.

Hi, your at a fun stage!!! My son seemed to like mashed ripe banana and also I steamed apples and he also at that. There are also some heinz apples which are a good next step food also.
I guess the key is to try and see what works best for bubs
