Answer: Hello! Babies even if don't have teeth can easily chew food. Their gums are strong enough for that. As far as choking hazards are concerned, it will even be there when your baby will have full set of teeth. When ever you give anything stay near him and monitor him. Initially give finger foods like steamed carrots, steamed broccoli,cheese slices, Paneer pieces slightly tossed in ghee or butter. Dont worry start giving him now order later, he will grow lazy and will not chewing his food. Go slow on it and don't force him. But ascertain that he has to chew his food.... Take care
