Hi, there! With my babies, & I've had 3, I've let them lead the way with what they're ready to try. If you tune into your child, you can trust your judgement, I think.
I introduced my kids to the foods of the family, though somewhat more smooshed or overcooked for easier eating. If your concerned about nutrients, the same applies to babies/kids as adults, the more color variety in your plate, the better balance of nutrients you will get. The only precaution I would really adhere to is to not overdo it with dark, leafy greens. They can eat them, but a smaller proportion of their meal than other veggies. Their little kidneys just struggle a little more with them, but you won't hurt them unless your feeding collards and kale on a daily basis!
The most important thing is to introduce one new thing at a time, probably not more than one a week, so that you can identify the culprit if there's a reaction.
Good luck & enjoy that baby!
