Feeding my daughter nutritious foods has always been a really big deal to me. Felicity was willing to eat anything as a baby, some of her favs have been, avacado (this was the first food she ever ate), cabbage, spinach, steamed broccoli, salmon and all kinds of other things. Here is Felicity eating beeets when she was 7 months old.
Felicity actually loved avacado so much as a baby that the only way she would eat baby cereal was if it was mixed with avacado and fed to her out of the avacado shell. Here's a pic of her from the first time she ever tried to feed herself an avacado, which mostly ended up squashed all over her face!
Anyway, one of the things I found a while back that has helped direct me on what foods to feed Felicity is a list published by the BabyCenter.com Medical Advisory Board of the Top 10 Baby Foods. Here it is:
TOP TEN FOODS FOR BABIES
Dark Green Leafy Vegetables
(Felicity eating rasberries and cheerios)
I can proudly report Felicity liked all of the foods from their list except oranges, she's not a big citrus fan. I would steam the foods then mash them up into mush when she was really little but by the time she was 9 months she could do chunks of food on her own as long as the were steamed really well. I have never had a fancy steamer. I just use a little metal steamer thing that sits inside of a pot - I got it from Wal Mart (think it cost about $8) and it has gotten a ton of use. We still use it almost everyday to steam her vegetables.

Anyway, I hope you find the BabyCenter.com's food list helpful - they are a great resource anytime you are researching anything to do with babies. Some other resources I've found helpful are AskDrSears.com and WhatToExpect.com - I also have found many wonderful books, I will have to dig around and find them all and will post the info on them later... most of them are boxed up or loaned out to other people right now.
