This is for those of you who are feeding your infants (less than 1 yr old). i'm low on food for my little guy and before i hit the store to make some more i thought i'd see if i could find any inspiration for new foods from other Mommas. What are your infant's favorites?

DD love sweat peas, we are in an area where organic fruits and veggies haven't quite caught on yet, so I just bought them frozen and pureed them..yumyum<br><br>
She also really like butternut squash<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I love Annabel Karmel's website as well as the Cuisinart site for babyfood ideas. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
My kids' favorite was the little pasta stars with carrots and tomatoes... but I think I waited until they were over one to make it for them.<br><br><a href="http://www.annabelkarmel.com/" target="_blank">http://www.annabelkarmel.com/</a><br><br><a href="http://www.cuisinart.com/baby/" target="_blank">http://www.cuisinart.com/baby/</a>

Before the age of one, all of my kids thought breastmilk was the greatest food in the world!!!<br><br>
Beyond that, I'd just offer small amounts of whatever I was making for the rest of the family. If they were too young to eat something on the family's menu, they were also too little to "need" solids all the time.<br><br>
With DS I used that stupid wallpaper-paste-flavored infant cereal since I got it free from WIC.

Eww yeah we used to get that too! I would add mashed banana or other pureed fresh fruits, or organic applesauce and cinnamon to the cereal to make more, well, edible <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

My dd likes to eat pretty much everything - today I gave her pureed apples/mango and pears, she likes carrots and peas pureed, sweet potatoes and garbanzo beans. Actually, she doesn't love the beans so much, but if I hide it in enough veggies, then she doesn't seem to mind it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Bananas are a huge favorite, yogurt, cottage cheese....

My sons all time favorite dish was, I would steam eggplant and mushrooms together and poach a chicken breast in chicken stock. Then I would mill it all together and he loved it. I did too. I think the smaller eggplants taste better than the big honkin one. That one is more bitter.<br><br>
Second to that was butternut squash. Everytime we are at the store he begs for a squash. Loves it.

This sounds weird but my son's favorite was avocado & pear mixed! He LOVED it. So did his little friend, I think the mom got it from <a href="http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com" target="_blank">www.wholesomebabyfood.com</a>

My kids always loved: peas, baked squash (especially butternut), baked sweet potatoes, steamed carrots, avocado (still a favorite with ALL of them), mushed fruits - pretty much any fruit, mashed potatoes, and I know there are others, but my brain is fuzzy right now!

Pretty much whatever was on my plate. In fact he had no interest in solids until he could start mooching off my plate. Roasted carrots were a huge hit.

My 11 month old basically eats whatever we eat. He loves bits of pasta, pancakes (I make pancakes every Saturday to last throughout the week - for the baby I make long skinny ones that he can easily hold. I do make mine with whole grain flours and generally add some kind of fruit), muffins, beans, all sorts of fruits and veggies - he especially likes chunks of bananas and also broccoli, whole grain crackers, small cubes or long strips of cheese. He loves quesadilla made with whole grain tortillas, beans, and cheese.<br><br>
Really I don't make special foods for him, just offer him bits and pieces of whatever he seems to want. My goal at this point is to allow him to explore a wide variety of tastes and textures, since his nutritional needs are still being met by my breast milk.
