Of course there are common sense baby food considerations. For example, since onions may cause discomforting gas, initially blend only a tiny portion of cooked, pureed onion into a food previously introduced. Due to the sulfur content, you might want to make a game of the first time you offer a thin raw onion ring to your child as finger food – a “look what happens to my eyes when I hold this” kind of a game (stressing HAPPY tears) – or a “mmm, this is lip-smacking delicious” game where you exaggerate the lip smacking. Might you have carefully cooked a few ringlets and offered them…somewhere between the pureed stage and the raw finger food stage? It’s a thought! Many factors come into play.
