Pears were a good food for Derrick. He really seemed to enjoy eating them. We peeled the pear and cut it into wedges. We microwaved it to soften them up. We tried to let Derrick hold the pears himself, but they were too slippery for him to get a good grip. Instead I held the pear and let him move toward it and bite himself.
I think we will try these again very soon. Hopefully he can learn how to pick them up on his own soon
