EG eats whatever we eat for breakfast/lunch/dinner and usually some sort of snack (fruit, puffs, etc.) between meals. If we are having something that she can't eat we'll make her eggs or a pb&j or something instead.
Specifically though, some of her favorites are vegetable soup, poppyseed chicken, and literally any fruits and steamed vegetables,
During the work week, I try to plan in advance and portion out some stuff for MH or the nanny to easily feed C. His breakfast usually consists of a fruit puree (peach, pear and banana are favorites), infant oatmeal and/or yogurt. Sometimes a scrambled egg in place of one of those things. Lunch includes a veggie puree or two and then some sort of finger foods (often chicken, turkey, pasta/meatballs, peanut butter bread, or part of a Yummy Spoonful frozen meal). Dinner is whatever we're having (or if it's something we think might too 'out there' for him, dinner will be similar to lunch). Snacks usually include cheese, puffs, Cheerios, cut up fruit, pickles, applesauce.
His breakfast is pretty much always the same, but on the weekends when we're all together lunch and dinner are a little less planned and he just has what we're having 99% of the time.
ETA I'm not sure if we will continue the veggie purees much longer. He prefers to feed himself, but it has been a fairly reliable way to make sure he's getting his veggies so we will see. The only reason I still do fruit purees is because he likes them mixed in his oatmeal & yogurt.
I'm single parenting right now, so our routine varies, usually based on what's easiest at the time. she'll hapily chew on a chunk of banana (1/3-1/2 a banana), cheerios, fruit/veggie pouches are trickier, but she's getting the hang of them, she's decided she likes whole milk yogurt in the last week or so, she'll nearly finish those pouches in one sitting. depending on what I'm eating I'll share off my plate (she had salmon last night). She also really likes hummus.

We are using up the final purées that we have and will be moving to all self-feed foods as soon as they are gone. So far, this baby will eat anything we put in front of her. We are doing mostly fruits, veggies, cheeses, and breads with peanut butter. The only thing we don't give too much of is meat because it's so hard to chew, but we do give hamburger meat and meatloaf and stuff like that. Oh and cheerios, puffs, and yogurt melts.
On days M is home, we do 3 meals and sometimes a snack with nursing in between everything. Most days for breakfast she has a piece of sausage or some chia seed pudding and she's been into my hash browns lately. For lunch it will be left overs (ground turkey and sweet potatoes, roast chicken and veggies, soup, whatever really) and then she has what we have for dinner- I try to cook things that are safe for her. She loves chicken nuggests (with the breading off) we'll cut up little pieces of fresh fruit, or whatever, For snacks she usually has teensy fruits or tiny fruits, or applesauce. At daycare I send left overs and two pouches with breast milk. I feel like they are easy and reliable and I'm kind of at a loss for what else I'd send. I'd love it if she would eat some quinoa cereal for breakfast, but she doesn't care for it.

Breakfast is usually scrambled eggs and blueberries or raspberries and those horizon cheese shapes. Lunch is sometimes pasta pickups or pb and j. Dinner is whatever we are having with steamed veggies. Some favorites are lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, cheeseburger macaroni and chicken and broccoli Alfredo. We do snacks in between meals. A snack is usually either a pouch, applesauce in a pouch, freeze dried apples or cut up fruit. We are getting off of them now that Katy is better with pouches but the choome tops work really well for babies who are trying to get used to the pouches. It helps control how much comes out of the pouch.
M eats basically anything and everything. I try to provide a meat, a starch, a veggie, and a fruit, especially at dinner. During the week most of his meals and snacks are at daycare and they follow whatever the current recommended guidelines are. Some favorites for dinner are meatballs, chicken nuggets, korean bbq ground beef, taco meat, but honestly he eats whatever I give him. His favorite veggies are peas and carrots. I usually buy a steam in bag veggie and use it for 2-3 meals. When we go out to eat I just order him something off of the kid's menu and then he grazes on whatever I ordered as well.
I don't stress about what he does or doesn't eat. I offer everything and when he is done, he is done. Sometimes he eats everything, sometimes he throws it all on the floor.
DS never really ate purees (two weeks max) but he eats everything we eat. The only things I haven't given are large quantities of PB, meat of shellfish (he's had broth/rice out of dishes containing shellfish), and anything that's too horribly spicy. We do BLW, but he transitioned sooner than any of his siblings.
