I've always looked forward to introducing solid foods to my daughter. Healthy food is such a passion of mine and feeding my child the healthiest food available is now my new passion. Watching her discover new tastes, textures, and colors is something that I truly enjoy. She is quite an independent eater and doesn't love being spoon-fed, so we have allowed her to use other foods as "dippers". For example, she'll take an easy-to-hold piece of fruit or vegetable (her current faves are broccoli florets and carrot sticks) and dip it into a homemade puree of some sort. It's really fun to watch. I've made a version of this vibrant beet hummus for her and she LOVED it. I hope you will, too.
