    Anyone know if certain kinds of fruits or vegetables should NOT be used as First Foods, the first kind of solids a baby should eat? An article on WebMD said, "It doesn't matter as much, as long as you offer a variety...Options include carrots, pears, prunes, sweet potatoes, avacadoes, bananas, peaches and much more." It has been my significant other's experience with nieces a nephews that strawberries and mangos are not good as a stepping stone and should be consumed as a 2nd food after pasteurization.
