Let him play with berries and mix them together. He will surely squish these fleshy fruits( the baby will get excited and interested while playing especially when he feels the texture of the berries, he will try to put a smashed small piece in his mouth in order to taste it, so you have to keep an eye on him!) Let him do it by himself until he gets tired or not interested . Provide the rest time .
