What Do You Serve Babies at Eight-Months?
Now that the baby has tasted fruits, vegetables, and single grain baby cereals you can try to introduce meat and fish, pasta, or noodles. Fruits to try after eight-months include: blueberries, cherries, cranberries, grapes, melons, watermelons, cantaloupes, mango, and papaya.
You can introduce some raw fruits now too. Vegetables, pasta, and rice should be soft cooked and mashed with a fork. While giving meat remember to cook and chop into small soft pieces.
