Can you feed your baby sweets?

My friend gave her 6month old baby a strawberry shortcake and he ate it. is that safe? are lemons safe? I don't know what to think about that? I don't want to ask my sons doc and sound stupid. but what do you ladies think about feeding a baby food that's not purreed or in a bottle? my son is 7months old and 29 inches and over 20.5lbs now.
