I don’t have a child yet, but this is my understanding… stage 1 foods are single ingredient foods that are finely pureed.  Stage 2 foods contain more texture/lumps and can be a combination of foods (ex. 2-3 ingredients).  The reason that you start with the stage one foods is because it takes the child time to develop the skills to swallow more solid foods, and they aren’t ready for anything with a lot of texture.  Also, by introducing only one food at a time, it helps to rule out if there are any allergies.

It’s always a good idea to check with your pediatrician to see if they have any advice as well!
