Your 7 month old child is much more interested in eating food than he was at 6 months. He or she is probably ready to expand their daily menu to add a little more variety.

My 7 month old twins have very different tastes. One eats just about everything I give him, and the other is very picky and cries when I try to give him something that he doesn't like. Here is an example of a menu that worked well for me:
Sample menu plan for a 7 month old baby:
Rice cereals with mashed bananas
Applesauce with carrots
Sweet potatoes or squash with meat (turkey, chicken or beef)
Applesauce with apricots, peaches or pears
If you have a picky eater, don't be afraid to try different food combinations. I read that you shouldn't try to force a baby to eat something he doesn't like, so I tried to find combinations that cheat my picky eater while eating his vegetables.
He likes meat mixed with his sweet potatoes or squash, and I have also added fruit to this combination. He adds a little natural sweetness, and he loves it! One day, I mixed my frozen peach and squash cubes and ended up mixing sweet potatoes, peaches and chicken.
