Foods for babies with no teeth

125 first foods for babies with no teeth

by Jo

Can you imagine eating food without any teeth? Just with your gums alone? I surely find it hard to picture, but we were once like our little ones. Toothless, like a 100 year old grandma. Luckily, there are first foods for babies with no teeth. And I found 125 of them for you to read about.




The original article was written back in 2018. This is a 2021 updated version.

Since then, I have re-written and updated this post to reflect the changes I have gone through when it came to my own beliefs/thoughts and how I word things when talking about feeding kids. As such, the remains of the original article can be seen in the comments section. Word of caution, it’s not something that makes too much sense anymore and some parts I am not very proud of. I even considered deleting the comments altogether, but that doesn’t seem just right either. Either way, I hope this article helps you, even a bit. 

Yes, the Pinterest pins show blueberries and they are a choking hazard, but do read the entire post. I have tried to give suggestions for each type of food so as to make them safe even for little ones.

If I missed anything, give me a shout.


But how can babies even chew without teeth?


Well, the truth is, they don’t need teeth to chew.


Chewing involves movements of the jaw, tongue and cheek. Teeth are used later on to break up more complex fibres.


This is technically done with the teeth that are more at the back of the mouth, called molars. The first molars show up somewhere between 13 and 19 months old, as you can see from the graph below.



So if we were to wait that long before we gave our little ones any food that can be easily munched on with the gums, then we would seriously endanger his or her capabilities of dealing with food (not to mention the fact that after around 8 months, the gag reflex moves further down the tongue and babies might experience a higher risk of choking if they are not accustomed to table foods yet).


Furthermore, babies are already experienced in munching away, because they would have spent a lot of time already with their fingers in their mouth, biting toys and other objects.


So encourage them to explore these with their lips, tongue and jaw, at the same time being careful of any pieces that might come off and increase the risk of choking.


So, assuming little one doesn’t have any teeth yet, what can I give him?


See the list below. 


But before anything else, make sure baby meets the three signs he or she is ready to begin in the first place. I cannot stress this enough, guys, and it will save you lots of trouble down the road.


There was a time when the recommendations said to start solids at 4 months+ and I’m not sure that all the baby food manufacturers have come up-to-date with the current official advice regarding infant feeding. Always watch the signs in your baby and judge whether he or she is ready. This usually happens at around 6 months, give or take.


Here you go, some ideas of first foods for babies with no teeth. I also added some notes and suggestions of serving for some of them. This is regardless of the method you use, baby led weaning or traditional. At some point, you’ll have to start giving them table foods.


And because I’m a fan of food groups, I have split them accordingly, for easier reference.


Note: please be aware of choking hazards. I find this article sums up pretty well what are the foods you need to pay extra attention to. As your little one develops his ability to chew, you need to be careful, teeth or no teeth. 


Fruits and veggies


As a general rule, go for the ripest you can get, in the beginning, as these are usually softer for babies just starting out.

  1. Avocado. Serve as is, sliced into wedges, or served on toast, mashed, with an egg on top. You can also try a guacamole recipe, which is basically adding some tomato, red onion, a bit of pepper and some lemon juice to a mashed avocado. For an easier grip, you can toss it through some breadcrumbs or ground nuts.
  2. Banana. Serve as is, sliced or mashed. Here is a tip on how to offer it if baby is at the beginning, doing baby led weaning and has tiny hands. Also, here’s my recipe of baby’s chocolate you can make with banana and avocado.
  3. Apricot. Pick a softer variety, the riper, the better. Cut into wedges or mash.
  4. Tomato. Try serving them as such or on top of a pizza toast (just a slice of toast, with some mozzarella and tomatoes and baked for 10 minutes in the oven). My youngest sometimes enjoys it cut wedge-style.
  5. Peach. Extra ripe are usually softer.
  6. Mango. Go for the ripe ones.
  7. Strawberry. Remove the hull (the leafy and usually white part on top) before giving it to baby. Halved would be best. The bigger ones even cut into 4 pieces.
  8. Watermelon. Melts in the mouth. Remove the seeds and only give the red parts to baby.
  9. Pear. Peel it and if it’s too hard, you can bake it in the oven for a while, with cinnamon on top.
  10. Apple. Peel and cook it in the oven, like the pear, or shred it on a grater (I used to do this in the beginning when Emma was small; the finer side of the grater also turns the apple into applesauce).
  11. Muskmelon.
  12. Honeydew melon.
  13. Carrot. Steam, boil or bake in the oven to make it soft. Don’t offer raw to babies just starting out.
  14. Cauliflower. Steam, boil or bake in the oven with some seasoning on top.
  15. Broccoli.  Here are 10 basic techniques for cooking broccoli from scratch, explained in-depth. Plus, you’re getting a free cheatsheet with the 3 ingredients that make broccoli taste good.
  16. Potato. Boil, bake or even steam until very soft.
  17. Sweet potato. Cook in the same way as a normal potato.
  18. Pumpkin. Bake in the oven until soft.
  19. Zucchini. Baked or boiled until it’s soft. Also grated works really well, incorporated in baked batters.
  20. Beetroot. Steam or boil. Be careful, though, as it contains a high amount of nitrates and it is not ok for baby to have in big quantities or too often. If you offer a varied menu, it shouldn’t be a problem.
  21. Grape. Cut them in quarters lengthways. Use this if you’re short on time.
  22. Satsumas or easy peelers. Cut in half for safety.
  23. Clementines.
  24. Raisins. If you leave them to hydrate in water for 1 hour or so they should give up their sweetness. They are a choking hazard as per the link I shared above, so pay extra attention. Better incorporate them in baked foods.
  25. Blueberry. Smash/squish them for safety or cut them in half.
  26. Blackberry. I would halve these in the beginning, as there are some quite big.
  27. Cucumber. I would only offer the middle part in the beginning, as it’s softer and easier to manage for babies just starting out.
  28. Peas. Great for improving that pincer grasp.
  29. Sweetcorn.
  30. Baked beans. Great source of iron.
  31. Plum.
  32. Kiwi.
  33. Dried apricots. Great source of iron, like any dried fruit, really. A bit on the sweet side, so be mindful of that.
  34. Cherries. Cut in half or quarters.
  35. Sour cherries. Serve the same as cherries.
  36. Pineapple.
  37. Orange. Cut the pieces in half or more.
  38. Raspberries.
  39. Olives. Beware of how salty they are. If left in water, they will lose their saltiness.
  40. Papaya.
  41. Dried cranberries. Same as raisins, so better incorporate them in a batter/dough.
  42. Parsnips. Boil, steam or bake in the oven with some seasoning on top. You can remove the center which is usually harder.
  43. Butternut squash. Bake or steam.
  44. Bell pepper. Bake or boil.
  45. Green beans. Boil or steam.
  46. Chickpeas. Best boiled or turned into hummus or falafel.
  47. Onion. Boiled or baked.
  48. Turnips. Boiled until soft. You can make a veggie broth by boiling most of the hard veggies.
  49. Cabbage. Boiled or baked.
  50. Mushrooms. Make a sauce for pasta or bake them in the oven.
  51. Lentils. Turn them into soup or stews.
  52. Eggplant. Baked in the oven is your best bet.
  53. Asparagus. Can be a bit hard, but baby can munch away if properly cooked, like in the oven or steamed.
  54. Edamame. Never cooked them, but I guess either boiled or steamed.
  55. Kaki fruit.
  56. Lychee. Just make sure to peel the outer shell.
  57. Grapefruit. Cut each slice in three smaller pieces or more, depending on size.
  58. Pomelo. Cut each slice in multiple pieces.
  59. Lemon. My youngest loves his lemons cut into wedges and he just sucks at the pulp.
  60. Figs
  61. Passion fruit
  62. Yam. It’s a root vegetable and can be cooked in a similar way to a sweet potato.
  63. Brussel sprouts. Boiled, steamed or baked with seasoning.
  64. Nectarine. Go for riper ones and cut into wedges.
  65. Ugli fruit.
  66. Plantains. They look like bananas, but you have to cook them. They come from Jamaica, I believe.

128. Spiced biscuits. I think these are great for when little ones are teething.

130. A kid friendly brownie with a secret nutritious ingredient. 


You are probably thinking: is there anything she hasn’t mentioned?


In fact, I haven’t mentioned the leafy vegetables, like spinach, lettuce, salad etc because babies might have a hard time tearing them apart so as not to stick to the roof of their mouths.


I also didn’t mention pomegranate, because of its high choking risk.


What comes next?

Knowing what to feed your kids might be a little easier now that you have this list, but actually getting them to eat or at least try any food is another story entirely.

This is why I have put together a 7-part blog series about how to get your little one to eat any food. It is based on more than 3 years of feeding little tummies, observing and taking mental notes about everything I did and everything they did at mealtimes.

I think you’ll find it useful and worth reading. You can save it on Pinterest for later reading or share with someone you know.

But you’re obviously not going to wait till his first birthday to start solids! Since the recommended age for starting to wean is 6 months, many babies don’t depend upon their teeth to eat. Besides, the first teeth that appear are usually the front teeth, which aren’t used for chewing anyway. (Their gums are enough for that, which your poor nipples probably know by now!)

For most babies till the age of 8 months, the puree and porridge phase goes by smoothly. But many Moms worry about their child’s diet after this phase, when they start thinking about introducing lumpier textures in their baby’s diet. Now you don’t need to worry if your baby still doesn’t have any teeth yet – we assure you, he’s not going to starve! Keep breastfeeding him for as long as you want, and as for foods, we’ve drawn up a list of 50 foods for babies without teeth , even if he’s still waiting for that first tooth!

3. Always be in the room with your baby when he’s eating.

4. With a new food, introduce small amounts at a time.

5. In case of any doubt, consult a doctor.

Most babies will find a way to gnaw on their food, chew on it at the back of their mouths and swallow. They generally have a natural gagging reflex to prevent choking, so they’ll spit out food that’s may be dangerous – don’t force it back down. With some trial and error, you’ll soon find that your baby is able to enjoy most foods – you’ll know when you see that loving toothless grin!

    1. Salt

    Excess salt in the diet is harmful to the baby's kidneys and can lead to swelling and dehydration. Of course, a lack of salt is also not useful, but in real life, with a normal diet, it practically does not occur: salt is contained in sufficient quantities in most foods, and there is no need to add salt on purpose. And if for us, adults, baby purees and cereals without salt and sugar seem tasteless and disgusting, don’t worry, for a baby, the situation is completely different.

    The taste perception of young children is not yet spoiled by excessively sweet and salty foods, flavors and flavor enhancers. If your child refuses mashed broccoli, then most likely he just does not like the taste and texture of broccoli, and not at all the lack of salt.

    2. Sugar

    Everyone knows the dangers of excess sugar - dental problems, obesity, associated cardiovascular diseases and the risk of developing diabetes. However, it can be very difficult to refuse a cookie or candy to a child familiar with the sweet taste, and tears are usually inevitable. What to do?

    The secret is simple - introduce foods with added sugar into your baby's diet as late as possible, at the earliest in the year, although it is better to wait until two years. The "National Nutrition Optimization Program for Children aged 1 to 3" recommends limiting sugar in the diet of babies 1 to 3 years of age to 25-30 grams per day, taking into account the sugar found in special baby foods, juices, yogurts, etc.

    3. Honey

    It would seem that honey is a wonderful and healthy alternative to sugar, so why is it not recommended for babies under one year old? In fact, the reasons several. First, honey can contain spores bacteria Clostridium botulinum. The immune system of adults and children older people can easily cope with them, but in babies they can cause a deadly disease called infantile botulism.

    Secondly, honey is the strongest allergen, so it is better to postpone acquaintance with it until a later age.

    4. Fruit juices and drinks

    American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released in 2017 New recommendations for adequate intake of fruit juices in infants, young children and adolescents who begin with advice to completely avoid fruit juice for feeding infants life. According to AAP, excessive juice consumption can lead to diarrhea, overeating or, conversely, malnutrition, as well as to occurrence of dental caries*. At the same time, babies can and should be offered Whole fruit, mashed or pureed.

    A various fruit drinks and nectars in addition to natural sugar from fruits often contain added sugar, which makes them perfectly unsuitable for feeding babies up to a year.

    Breeding of juices and nectars with water does not completely solve the problem, since it does not reduce dental risks. If your child refuses to drink water, try compotes and fruit or herbal teas.

    5. Foods that are easy to choke on

    The danger of a product to children is determined by several characteristics: consistency, shape, and size. Most often babies gagging slippery, round, sticky, fibrous and hard products.

    The most dangerous are all round and large enough to block the airways: lozenges, grapes, cherry tomatoes, nuts**. Not far behind in sad dangerous food rating other candies (especially sticky ones), fish bones and meat and, in fact, the meat itself ***.

    Remember that theoretically a child can choke on any food, so never leave your baby unsupervised eating.

    6. Egg white

    Have you ever wondered why in all complementary feeding schemes is it the yolk, not the whole egg? Nothing surprising: egg protein is one of the strongest allergens. Up to a year is better limit the baby to only the yolk, and introduce the protein a little later.

    Only make sure the eggs are thoroughly cooked. Raw and half-raw eggs may contain a bacterium that causes salmonellosis, a disease deadly for young children.

    7. Cow and goat milk

    Surprised? Whole cow's milk is the main cause of allergies in children under one year old. In addition, it contains a large amount of lactose, milk sugar, which some babies have difficulty digesting due to the fact that their gastrointestinal tract is not yet sufficiently developed. There are studies linking the early introduction of animal milk into the diet as a substitute for mother's milk or infant formula with an increased risk of iron deficiency anemia and type 1 diabetes. ****

    Goat milk is actually not much different from cow milk, goat and cow are evolutionarily close, goat milk proteins are very similar in structure to cow proteins, and almost as often cause allergies.

    It is advisable to introduce cow's milk into the diet of a child not earlier than 1 year. Interestingly, this rule does not apply to special children's fermented milk products, they are easier to digest and useful for babies.
