Our baby is properly into his food now. At nearly seven months old he's getting pretty good with his hands, well good enough to pick everything up and put it in his mouth anyway. He's not coming off milk anytime soon though, although when I take back over in September with childcare he obviously won't be having so much breast milk and more formula, I just don't have the right equipment!

He already loves certain types of food and my wife is doing a great job of getting him to eat different things. Last night he had some of our runner beans to hold and chew and he loves broad beans without the skins, slices of potatoes, carrots or parsnips or a real favourite of his is a mini sandwich with hummus on it. Fruit is high on the list as well, strawberries, banana, pear anything sweet really.
It does make us think though, I was in my twenties before I even tried hummus and our children now grow up with it as a real staple in our house, we eat some at least once a week.
What food did you come to late in life but is now on your shopping list every week? Did the diet your children ate differ from your own as a child much?
