Eggplant can be given to your 8 to 10 month old baby. When it's steamed, it is easily digested and can be mixed with other veggies and meat. You may also choose to bake or fry eggplant, but steaming is easiest and lowest in fat content. High in fibre, eggplant also has vitamin A, folate, and calcium.

Eggplant and Brown Rice
1. Wash and peel eggplant. If you wish, you may remove the seeds.
2. Cut into one-inch pieces and steam until tender.
3. Cook brown rice until soft.
4. Mix rice and eggplant together using a blender or food processor.

Instead of removing the seeds, you can also soak the pieces in warm water for an hour which removes the bulk of the itchy mouthfeel a lot of people have problems with.
