Cottage Cheese with Fruit
Summer fruit with cottage cheese is a great combination for young eaters. This simple meal provides protein along with healthy fruit. To make the dish a little soupier, slice the fruit on a saucer; pour any juice that comes out right on top of the cottage cheese.

Once your child is 18–24 months old, almost none of her food will need to be puréed. While she may still enjoy thinner textures, it's also a good idea to challenge her with more chewing foods. Most recipes for this age group can be fork-mashed or simply served as is.
