We started solids at 6 months for my daughter using organic vegetables and meat.
Cooked on the stove, then pureed then put into ice cube trays, and stored in containers for selection at meal time.
Potatoes, carrots, mushroom, squash, pumpkin, spinach, chicken, beef, lamb, beans, watermelon, rockmelon, apple, pear, corn -tinned with No sugar, dried peas cooked till mushy, pasta, celery, onion, fish, zucchini the list goies on.
We selected 4 blocks to start with. Now she is 10 month old she eats 6 blocks (lunch/dinner)
fruit for breakfast if very liquidy with thicken slightly with farex.
She loves her food, and the selection is endless and keeps growing.
I hope this helps a little, might be a little more time consuming but its worth knowing what your baby is eatting in the long run.
