As for drinks, the acid compotes and jelly sweetening natural grape sugar or honey - with the proviso that the toddler is not allergic to it.
pureed usually at the time of weaning the child cut through only one or two teeth, that is, he can not chew on their own.Therefore, food should be rubbed until puree (homogenized).A little later, in 8-9 months will be enough to knead it with a fork.And by the year - to cut food into small pieces.
