I gave rice cereal from the healthfood store mixed with pureed prunes. She, however, got over that pretty quickly and we still have well over half the box left. She's now about 7 months old and her first favorites were sweetpotatoes, butternut squash, avacado, and peas. The peas are the Gerber variety and the rest are cooked then mashed in the blender.

The first food that DD actually swallowed rather than spitting it out was some broccoli off my plate, mashed with my fork.
After that, she'd eat just about anything I was eating, as long as I mushed it up first. Oatmeal and grits were (and still are) big hits.
