My 13 month old will not anything but smooth baby food. Every time I try to offer textured foods he spits them out. Any suggestions?

Transition from Smooth to Textured Baby Food

Starting when a baby is about six months of age, it is important to start offering finger foods such as cereals, cooked pasta or vegetables or small pieces of soft fruits. By 15 months, most babies have mastered finger foods and are ready to start using a fork or spoon. Try taking turns with your toddler, or let him use his own spoon while you do most of the work with yours. Many children are eating well with a fork or spoon by 24 months.
