Reply to How to get 11 month old to move past purees?

My lo loves peeled smashed beans (I smash them through a strainer to get the skins off quickly) and smashed avocado on his happy baby teethers. I break the cracker into small pieces bc otherwise he’ll get too much in at once bc he enjoys it so much. We’ll do hummus too, but I think it may have caused a mild allergic reaction this last time. He’s ten months but a sucker for flavor, I gave him actual guacamole (not spicy) with cheese and you could tell he was in love. Have you tried adding spices to foods to enhance the flavor a little without giving lo false expectations? We go back and forth with adding spices and not adding anything. I also eat food off of his tray to show him that I think it’s good too and this has helped so much.
