|Really, when a baby is truly ready for solids, they can eat just about any table food YOU are eating, barring allergies.
We have done BLW with DD since she was 6mo. She didn't actually ingest much, but she loved to chew and explore and suck on everything. We took it nice and slow, not even offering every day.
Quite suddenly about 2 weeks ago, just before she turned 8mo, she became a chowhound. She now actually *eats* and demands *more* lol... With that change, we've expanded what we offer so that it is now pretty much everything we eat. The only things I'm keeping off-limits are processed foods or things with artificial additives, chocolate, too much salt, nut butters and milks, and hard chokable things like peanuts and raw carrots.
We're not giving her milk, because we don't drink milk, but she loves cheese and we just tried yogurt this week and she *LOVES* it. She loves chicken, ground beef, rice, kamut puffs, apples, potatoes, melon...
She has also had pizza (I took off the pepperoni), lasagna (big hit!), louisiana BBQ chicken, and chinese food. Yup, right from a restaurant. No MSG -- gave her some of the cooked chicken, carrots, broccoli, she loved it all.
We used to give her big pieces to hold and gnaw on, but her preference right now is for bite-sized pieces that she can pick up individually. When we give yogurt, I put a bit on the spoon then she GRABS the spoon and does the rest.
She has *NO TEETH*. None, nada, whatsoever.
So if an 8mo with no teeth is having a great time with 'finger foods' alone, and grown-up, spicy table foods at that, then a 10mo surely is ready to do the same.
