Babies should be given different textured food at least 3 weeks after he has started enjoying his pureed food, Which means if solid was started at 6 months then by 7 months, baby should be given soft cooked pieces of food. But do not worry and get stressed. Its still not too late. You can do this in stages, First start thickening the pureed food by adding cereal/ oats/wheat to baby food, keep the food very smooth, once baby is used to this, next grind baby's food in a grinder to get a lumpy food texture, let baby get adjusted to this. Next, you can start adding grated apples, grated carrots, grated cheese to baby's food and lastly start adding soft cooked pieces of veggies or fruits to baby's food and then start giving finger foods like carrot sticks or apple slices rolled in cereal and so on.. Slowly baby will get to know different textures. All this can be achieved in 3-4 weeks. Try it and all will be fine.
