    are frozen (thawed out of course) veggies ok for LO's to snack on?
    im trying to get away from only giving puffs. i assumed bananas were nice and soft. any other types of fruits and veggies you suggest? we haven't started pasta yet. i am hard boiling eggs now to attempt some egg yolks.

    Avocado & peas came to my mind.

    Anything that I wasn't sure about (as far as a chocking hazard) I'd put in those mesh feeders. The feeders worked great for slippery fruit too. I'd put pear slices, apple quarters, melon, and bananas in them.

    i dont have the mesh feeders...they love picking things up and eating them, though.
    i have pears and apples; i just figured they would be hard to eat bc they are hard.

    Pears get fairly soft once they are ripe enough. Melon is great. Grapes if they are cut. Frozen veggies are fine, thawed & cooked so they are soft. Almost anything, as long as it isn't really hard.
