String Beans For 8 Month Old???

Can I give my 8 month old some string green beans for dinner tonight? Should I cut them up? Is he old enough for some?

    Usually they go by teeth and showing an interest in table food...is he? Is he eating other finger foods? You could mash them really good and spoon f eed them to him. Cutting them up for finger food will depend on how the beans are cooked because if they are still the least bit hard, he could choke.

      Green beans yes but i would puree them still so he doesn't choke.
