Or do you just take whatever you are having for dinner and puree it? My son is 9 months old. The Dr said he can start eating table food. He does ok with small pieces of certain items, but will gag if I give him more than a really small piece so it would take him forever to eat dinner if I fed him just our table food. So I usually feed him a jar of baby food and slip in little bites of our food along with it. I haven't given him meat, but I will give him small bites of pasta or greenbeans.
